Primary Care Q & A

What does primary care cover?

This is a tough question to answer because primary care is designed to cover most of your medical needs, or at least put you on the right path for the medical help you need.

At Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine, the team of expert providers takes a holistic approach to medicine and studies and monitors your health from every angle to ensure that everything is working together for optimal health, including your:

  • Musculoskeletal system
  • Cardiovascular health
  • Endocrine health
  • Cellular health
  • Organ health

The bottom line is that your body is a finely tuned machine that relies on balance, and when one area is off, it can have a widespread effect on the whole. A primary care provider is trained to understand and locate the source of your problem.

What is involved in primary care?

The mainstay of primary care is your annual physical examination. This all-important visit to Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine allows your health care provider to monitor your health and detect any potential problems long before they become more serious medical concerns.

During your general annual exam, you should expect the following:

  • Weight and height measurement
  • Taking your vitals, such as blood pressure, heart rate, and temperature
  • Lab tests with blood and urine
  • A check of your eyes, ears, nose, and throat
  • A check of your lungs
  • An abdominal check

Your health care provider at Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine also sits down with you to review any problems or concerns you may have about your health and investigates the issue with you.

Who is my primary care provider?

At Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine, the staff truly operates as a team. You can expect to have a point person, which is usually a highly trained nurse practitioner (NP). Your NP ensures that all of your needs are taken care of and points you in the right direction for any additional help you might require, both in the practice and outside it.
