Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

Primary care is a branch of medicine focused on treating all aspects of your physical health. In addition to diagnosing and treating colds, the flu, and other common problems, primary care physicians like the team at Integrated Care offer a wide range of expertise.

Primary care doctors can:

  • Offer health counseling
  • Help you set and achieve certain health goals
  • Treat most diseases

Primary care physicians also offer preventive medicine, such as diagnostic tests, annual checkups, and screenings.

Are there different types of primary care?

Primary care features three different categories:

Family medicine

Family medicine is a type of primary care that treats people of all ages, from adolescents to senior citizens. At Integrated Care, the team provides primary care to men, women, and teens. Dr. Di Iorio specializes in diagnosing and treating teens who are physically active in school sports and other extracurricular activities.

Internal medicine

Internal medicine is a branch of primary care focused on diagnosing and treating adults. The team at Integrated Care regularly works with people suffering from arthritis, diabetes, and pain caused by sports-related or other musculoskeletal injuries.

Obstetrics and gynecology

Obstetrics and gynecology is a type of primary care focused on women’s reproductive health. If you’re experiencing symptoms such as pelvic pain and heavy menstrual bleeding, or you want to try a different type of birth control, the primary care team at Integrated Care can help.

What if I need to see a specialist?

Primary care physicians can diagnose and treat most health problems, including chronic conditions such as arthritis and diabetes. However, if you have a more serious health problem that requires the help of a specialist, the team at Integrated Care can provide referrals or coordinate care. Rest assured, your health and well-being is the team’s top priority.

How often should I participate in primary care?

There aren’t any set rules for primary care. It’s recommended you visit your primary care provider at least once a year. Not only does this provide an opportunity to check in on your overall health, it also provides an opportunity for you to discuss your concerns and build a relationship with your doctor.
