What is the role of a primary care doctor for my overall health?
Primary care doctors play a very important role in your overall health. They provide first-contact and continuing care for all undiagnosed symptoms you experience, and also tend to every aspect of your health—physical, mental, and emotional. They listen to your questions and concerns regarding your physical, mental, and emotional health and are able to effectively evaluate, diagnose, and either treat and coordinate treatment for any adverse symptoms or conditions you have.
What benefits should I expect from seeing a primary care doctor?
There are many invaluable benefits to seeing a primary care doctor on a regular basis. You will be able to establish a level of trust and familiarity with your primary care doctor through the continuing care they provide for you that you would otherwise not be able to experience by the carousel of doctors you would see in urgent care or emergency room settings. Thus, your primary care doctor will be familiar with your medical history and background which will make appointments convenient and streamlined. Primary care doctors can manage your medication, prevent illnesses before they take root by alerting you to conditions you are predisposed to and advising treatment or lifestyle changes and help you take care of your physical, emotional, and mental wellbeing.
What can a primary care doctor help me with?
All of our primary care doctors at Oak Park Urgent Care are trained to evaluate, diagnose, and treat or coordinate treatment for anything from the common cold and flu to diabetes, chronic conditions, and mental health issues. If you are pregnant, primary care doctors are also able to provide you with excellent support throughout your pregnancy. Rather than focusing on a specific specialty, primary care doctors are a kind of jack-of-all-trades when it comes to addressing a wide span of medical issues.
Do I need a primary care doctor even if I rarely get sick?
Primary care doctors are important even if you have great overall health because they can alert you to different conditions or illnesses that you may be predisposed to and can advise treatment or lifestyle changes to avoid them. In this way, you will be able to ensure that your clean bill of health continues into the future. It is good practice to see your primary care doctor at least once a year to maintain good health.
What kinds of things should I discuss with my primary care doctor?
When it comes to talking with your primary care doctor about your overall health, it is best to be as open and honest as possible. Since your discussions with your doctor will be confidential, you can bring any concerns affecting your physical, emotional, or mental wellbeing to your doctor and expect them to listen compassionately and be able to guide in you towards resources that will help you. If you are experiencing any worrisome symptoms, difficulty with sleep, problems in your marriage or with your children, mental health issues, or are looking for help in living a healthier lifestyle, your primary care doctor is there to help you find solutions to these problems.
