Primary Care Q & A

Why is primary care important? 

Primary care is about setting attainable health goals and undergoing regular screenings to check for signs of serious illness or disease. It’s important to build a relationship with a primary care clinic to:

  • Manage chronic conditions, including heart disease
  • Learn lifestyle changes to manage your weight
  • Ensure you’re taking the proper medications
  • Track inherited health issues between family members

You also need access to a primary care medicine team that knows you in case you become sick or injured. This way, you have someone to call who already has your entire medical record on file and can provide the appropriate treatment. 

Which services does a primary care doctor provide?

Jersey Integrative Health and Wellness is a multidisciplinary medical practice, so you can meet with a primary care physician and a specialist (like a cardiologist), all under one roof. Some of the common primary care services the practice offers include:

  • Vaccination updates
  • Annual physical exams
  • Prescription medication management
  • High blood pressure screenings
  • Expanded laboratory services
  • Electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG)
  • Nutritional and dietary counseling 

Jersey Integrative Health and Wellness even provides on-site physical therapy if you have chronic pain from arthritis, sports injuries or overuse issues, or lingering back or neck pain, among other issues. 

Your primary care doctor is the cornerstone of your personal health care team. It’s helpful to make a list of questions or health concerns you may have, so you and your physician can review them together during your visit. 

When should I see a primary care provider?

The primary care providers at Jersey Integrative Health and Wellness usually recommend scheduling a routine physical once a year if you’re generally healthy. You may need evaluations twice a year or even quarterly if you have a chronic condition, such as high blood pressure, so you can receive ongoing care.

In addition to these exams, it’s important to come in to Jersey Integrative Health and Wellness if you:

  • Run out of a medication
  • Notice a change in your health
  • Experience flu symptoms
  • Are planning to travel overseas

The compassionate team works around your busy schedule, so you have access to your physician when you need them the most.
