Primary Care Q & A
What is primary care?
Primary care refers to specialized health care providers and practices that serve as your medical home. Your medical home is the first place you call when you need medical attention, whether you’re sick, have a minor injury, or need ongoing treatment for chronic health conditions.
As an internal medicine practice, Prime Physicians provides most of your health care services and coordinates your care with other professionals when you need a specialist.

What happens during a primary care appointment?
The Prime Physicians team personalizes each patient’s care, so what happens during your appointment depends on your specific needs.
Your primary care appointment begins in a manner similar to your annual physical. The team reviews your medical history, asks about your health concerns and symptoms, and performs a physical exam. In many cases, they might request lab work.
The team works with you to create the care plan needed for your immediate and future health. Your care plan may include lifestyle changes such as dietary modifications, exercise, weight loss and management, medications, or other services that promote continued health and wellness.
