Primary Care Q&A

What is primary care?

Primary care is a broad medical field that centers on your individual health. It includes preventive care services that help you maintain your health as well as clinical diagnosis and treatment of mild to moderate conditions that don’t require care from a surgeon or specialist. 

At Delmar Primary Care Associates, Dr. Williams becomes highly familiar with your lifestyle, medical history, wellness goals, and conditions affecting you. Keeping track of all of this information helps her personalize your care and can even lead to faster and more accurate diagnoses when something goes wrong with your health. 

You can maintain a primary care relationship with Dr. Williams for years, as she has extensive experience providing care to a wide range of ages. She primarily focuses on using lifestyle changes to help you maintain long-term health, but she can also help you with medication management and coordinated care.

Which health care services does primary care include?

Primary care includes many of the routine services you need to maintain your good health. Dr. Williams educates you about your health and makes individualized recommendations when it comes to treating acute or chronic illnesses. At Delmar Primary Care Associates, your primary care involves:

  • Acute disease treatment
  • Chronic disease management
  • Injury care
  • Preventive visits 
  • Diagnostic testing
  • Vaccinations and vaccination updates
  • Screenings
  • Lifestyle coaching
  • Health education and counseling

In the event of an illness or injury, visiting your primary care provider instead of the emergency room is less time-consuming and expensive. 

Of course, you should still go to the emergency room if your illness or injury is life-threatening or very severe. 

What happens if my condition goes beyond the scope of primary care?

One of the many benefits of having a primary care provider like Dr. Williams is that she can connect you with specialists in your area. If you have a serious health condition and need more targeted care than primary care can offer, Dr. Williams refers you to a specialist in the appropriate field. 

As your primary care provider, Dr. Williams communicates with all specialists that give you care so they can coordinate your treatments and visits. She stays up-to-date on your condition so she can integrate all of your health updates into your ongoing preventive and comprehensive care. 

Having a primary care provider improves both your health and your health care outcomes. To book a primary care visit at Delmar Primary Care Associates, call the office or request an appointment online right away.
