Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

Primary care is the discipline of medicine that focuses on your health and well-being. You don’t need to be sick to participate in primary care; instead, you can make sure that you’re as healthy as you feel and learn the habits necessary to maintain your good health. 

Unlike other medical disciplines, primary care focuses on your holistic health. It doesn’t focus on one condition or a single organ but examines your mind and body to identify abnormalities pointing to illness. 


Why is primary care important?

Primary care is important because it allows you to keep your health on track when you’re not sick. Keeping up with your primary care is also beneficial because:

You form a strong, familiar relationship with your doctor
It allows for opportunities to ask questions about symptoms and habits
You can save time at future appointments
The Tucson Clinica Medica Familiar team can catch and treat abnormalities early

If you have any chronic conditions, primary care helps your provider monitor its progress and make adjustments to your treatment if you need them. 

They get a well-rounded idea of your health as well as your individuality to learn and identify the best treatments for you when needed.


What are some components of primary care?

There are many aspects to primary care since it encompasses so much of your health and wellness. As part of primary care, the team at Tucson Clinica Medica Familiar offers:

  • Annual physical exams
  • Corporate physicals
  • Employment and school physicals
  • Routine gynecologic care
  • Vaccinations
  • Psychological counseling with an in-house psychologist
  • Medication monitoring
  • Chronic disease management
  • Geriatric care


The team at Tucson Clinica Medica Familiar works together to make sure that you leave your primary care appointments confident in the care you received and the knowledge you accumulated. 

With regular primary care, you can become familiar with your own health in order to take good care of yourself at home. 

Even if you feel healthy, your body may be sending signals that only a physician can notice. To be sure that you’re healthy and functioning well, call Tucson Clinica Medica Familiar today or book an appointment online.
