Primary Care Q&A

What is primary care?

Primary care is a medical specialty that encourages good general health. It provides diagnosis and treatment of common illnesses, offers health counseling, and monitors your well-being and lifestyle goals over time. 

By participating in primary care regularly, it’s possible to catch potentially serious health problems, including heart disease, high cholesterol, and diabetes early on before they cause serious harm.

What services does primary care provide?

The team at Occupational Health Services Medical Group offers an array of primary care services, including:

  • Laboratory testing
  • X-rays
  • Physical exams
  • Vaccinations
  • Drug and alcohol screenings
  • EKG
  • Pre-operative exams
  • Prescription medication

If the team at Occupational Health Services Medical Group is unable to provide adequate treatment for your individual needs, they can also refer you to specialists in the area.

What should I bring to a primary care appointment?

To get the most out of your primary care appointment, it’s important to prepare in advance. In the days before your appointment, gather the necessary paperwork, including:

  • Results from any recent tests
  • Medical and surgical history
  • List of any questions
  • Insurance card and photo ID
  • Names and contact information of previous doctor(s)
  • Current medications

In addition, bring a list of any prescription medication, vitamins, or nutritional supplements you take regularly. 

How often should I participate in primary care?

If you want to preserve your physical health and well-being for years to come, schedule a primary care appointment at Occupational Health Services Medical Group at least once a year. 

Many potentially serious health problems, including high blood pressure, diabetes, and kidney disease, present few obvious symptoms. Routine exams can alert you to these and other problems when they respond best to treatment.
