Primary Care Visit Q&A
What is a primary care visit?
A primary care visit is a convenient outpatient appointment that takes about an hour. It presents an opportunity to check in on your physical well-being, ask your doctor questions, or undergo preventive screenings.
What does a primary care visit involve?
At Sunnylane Medical Clinic, no two primary care visits are exactly alike. Your provider tailors the visit to your age, medical history, and symptoms. Depending on your needs, your provider might recommend:
A physical exam
A physical exam assesses your general well-being. During an exam, your provider listens to your heart and respiratory rate, tests your reflexes, examines your skin for unusual moles or growths, and palpates your organs. Depending on your age, they might also order gender-specific screens, like a Pap test or a prostate exam.
Laboratory testing analyzes bodily fluids like urine, blood, or saliva. It’s used to detect potentially serious health problems invisible to the naked eye, including high cholesterol, nutritional deficiencies, and hormonal imbalances.
Immunizations train your body’s immune system to identify and eliminate potentially harmful invaders like viruses and bacteria. The type of immunizations that will benefit you depends on your age, medical history, and vaccination schedule.
Prescription medication refills
If you take prescription medication and run out, your Sunnylane Medical Clinic provider can refill it as necessary. If a particular drug doesn’t meet your needs, your provider might change the dosage or recommend a different medication.
Nutrition and exercise counseling
To achieve optimal well-being, it’s important to eat a balanced diet and exercise regularly. If you’re struggling to master either of these skills, your Sunnylane Medical Clinic provider can develop a custom counseling plan that aligns with your needs.
What if I need to see a medical specialist?
The primary care providers at Sunnylane Medical Clinic diagnose and treat most acute and chronic health problems. If you develop a potentially serious condition that requires care outside the scope of their offerings, your provider can refer you to a specialist in the area.
