Primary Care Q&A

What is primary care?

Primary care is your first point of contact for all minor and moderate medical needs. While you might need to visit specialists, your primary care provider can coordinate your care and point you in the right direction for all of the specialty care you need.

Your primary care providers at Germantown Pediatric and Family Medicine LLC offer preventive care, sick visits, and screening tests according to risk. Furthermore, you can bring up questions to your primary care providers that they can answer in detail.

Because your primary care providers see you and your family members semi-regularly, they’re better able to offer personalized health advice and helpful guidance for your lifestyle. They take note of your personal medical history, family medical history, current health, and lifestyle while building your wellness plan.

What services do primary care include?

When do I visit my primary care physician?

You can visit your primary care provider whether you’re sick or perfectly healthy. In fact, Germantown Pediatric and Family Medicine LLC encourages you to come in for annual wellness exams once a year to check in on your health and measure developmental milestones.

During these visits, your providers help you make healthy habits and lifestyle changes with personalized recommendations. You can also update your provider on any medications you take, and they can adjust your dosages if necessary.

Primary care physicians are also available for sick visits, which you schedule when you’re not feeling well. The team makes a diagnosis according to your symptoms and any relevant test results before providing treatment or wellness recommendations.
