Primary Care Q&A

What is primary care? 

Primary care is a division of medicine that encompasses a wide variety of health services to support your health. 

People often visit a primary care provider for:

  • Chronic disease evaluation and management
  • Acute care issues, such as flu symptoms or a rash
  • Prescriptions and medication management
  • Referrals to specialists
  • Health promotion and disease prevention

You want a skilled, trusted primary care provider because they serve as the foundation for all your health care needs. When you have a medical concern, symptoms, or an unexpected injury, Medical Associates of North Texas is your first point of contact. 

If you have a specialized health problem, such as cancer or diabetes, the primary care team at Medical Associates of North Texas can manage the details of your care. They coordinate treatments between other medical specialists to provide you with a seamless continuity of care.

Do I really need a primary care provider?

A primary care provider is a doctor that looks out for you and your long-term wellness. In the United States, research shows that adults who regularly seek care from a primary care provider have a 19% lower risk of premature death than people who see specialized providers intermittently. 

The team at Medical Associates of North Texas gets to know you and your health history. This is valuable when it comes to long-term health care as the practitioners know what screenings to suggest and how treatment plans affect you. 

No two people are the same, so having a dedicated primary care physician is an asset when developing your personalized care plan.
