Primary Care Q&A

What is primary care?

Primary care practices are at the center of your healthcare, diagnosing and treating acute illnesses such as the flu or strep throat, providing diagnostic imaging for wound and fracture care, and monitoring your health condition over time.


The team at Premier Primary Care is experienced and prepared to treat most diseases and health conditions for patients of all ages. They treat and educate you on everyday health ailments along with chronic conditions such as hypertension and diabetes. 


When specialty care is needed for treating specific health issues, they can refer you to appropriate medical care professionals.


What are the different types of primary care doctors?

Primary care doctors are separated into four distinct categories of medical care: 

Internal medicine

Internal medicine doctors focus on primary care services for adults.

Family medicine

Family medicine doctors provide primary care services for patients of all genders and ages, from birth to geriatrics. 


Pediatric medicine is a branch of primary care medicine focused on the unique health needs of newborns, infants, children, and adolescents. 

Obstetrics and Gynecology

Obstetricians and gynecologists (OB/GYNs) are primary care doctors specializing in women’s health needs, including family planning, reproductive system health, prenatal care, and pregnancy. 

Why do I need a primary care doctor?

Primary care is extremely important to your overall well-being because your doctor gets to know you over time, making detecting and diagnosing health issues at the early stages easier. Your primary care doctor gives you access to patient education, tools, and information that helps maintain good health and improve your quality of life.


Having a primary care doctor pays off financially, too. Patients with primary care doctors generally have better health and spend less money on their healthcare services overall.  

What if I need specialist care?

While the Premier Primary Care team has experience handling injuries and illnesses, some health conditions require a specialist's expertise. If you need specialist care, they can refer you to a local specialist best equipped to assist you with your specific health conditions.
