Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care medicine?

Primary care refers to comprehensive health care. It intends to preserve your existing health and prevent chronic disease. Practitioners diagnose and treat acute or chronic illnesses.

At Quality of Life Medical & Research Center, the team provides physicals, preventive care, immunizations, and well-woman exams as part of the primary care offerings. You can make same-day appointments so any pressing health issues don’t have to wait for medical attention.

What are wellness exams?

Part of primary care medicine includes annual wellness exams. These exams allow the practitioners to catch signs of problems in their earliest stages. The wellness exams are used to assess your overall health, keep tabs on health changes, and evaluate your risk of chronic disease.

You may undergo screenings for high blood sugar, high cholesterol, and some cancers. At well-woman exams, women are educated on the need for mammograms and usually undergo a Pap test for cervical cancer.

Use the wellness exam as a time to discuss any concerns you have about your health. Issues such as pain, opioid addiction, and weight loss can be addressed.

What chronic conditions are managed by primary care medicine?

Issues that need monitoring, such as diabetes, sleep apnea, heart disease, and hypertension, benefit from regular primary care visits. The expert staff at Quality of Life Medical & Research Center offer therapies such as medications, lifestyle modifications, diet, weight loss, and medical massage to help you live the best life possible, even if you do have a chronic disease.
