What is primary care?

Primary care is a branch of medicine that covers all basic health needs. The providers at Maxlife Urgent Care offer preventive care, urgent or emergency care, and chronic condition management in their services.

The practice welcomes patients with concerns about illness symptoms, who require medication management, or who need a physical for school, work, or general health. 

Having a trusted primary care provider is an important part of your health management. You always have someone familiar with your medical history and lifestyle to contact when you have a health problem. 

Primary care providers are the first step if you have symptoms of an illness or medical concerns. The providers at Maxlife Urgent Care can refer you to specialists if you have a condition that is out of their scope of practice. 

What types of conditions do primary care physicians treat?

Your primary care doctor treats the most common, everyday illnesses and injuries. They can also help you manage chronic conditions like asthma and diabetes. 

Maxlife Urgent Care provides the following services: 

  • Annual physicals
  • Asthma and allergy management
  • Rashes
  • Diabetes management
  • High blood pressure management
  • Vaccinations
  • Pediatric care visits
  • Annual, sports, and school physicals
  • Sick visits for illnesses like flu, COVID-19, and strep
  • Emergency care for minor injuries and acute illness
  • Sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing and treatment

If you have a specialist,  the primary care providers at Maxlife Urgent Care communicate with them to maintain continuity of care. 

Why should I have a regular primary care physician?

When you have a consistent primary care provider that you visit regularly, they develop an understanding of your health history. You get faster and more accurate diagnoses when you have symptoms of an illness. Your provider gets to know your lifestyle and habits and the impact these can have on your overall health and diagnosis. 

Keep up with regular physicals to get the most out of your relationship with your primary care physician. These appointments are a time for your provider to see you when you’re well and to get a picture of your baseline health. You can also ask questions and get answers about general health questions, such as diet, exercise, smoking, alcohol intake, sleep, and stress.
