Benefits of Establishing a Relationship With a Primary Care Provider

Building a relationship with a primary care provider is one of the most important steps you can take in managing your healthcare. A primary care doctor handles it all, from routine visits to treating you when you are ill, to managing chronic diseases and medical conditions. The doctors at First Choice Medical Care in Dyersburg, TN, provide a wide range of medical services, including primary care.

How a Primary Care Provider Can Help You

Prevention is the key to maintaining great health, and your primary care doctor provides a wide range of preventive services, including:

  • Performing well visits and routine physical examinations to evaluate your level of overall health and wellness
  • Ordering and reviewing results of laboratory tests to aid in early detection of diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol
  • Ordering and reviewing results of imaging studies to aid in the detection of acute or chronic conditions affecting your musculoskeletal system
  • Administering necessary and recommended vaccinations to prevent flu, pneumonia, COVID, shingles, and more

Preventive services can help keep you healthy, but you can still become ill. When you do, your primary care doctor is the person to call. Bacterial and viral infections such as strep throat, a cold, or the flu can all be managed by a primary care provider who may dispense antibiotics or antivirals to help you feel better.

Your primary care provider can also provide services specifically for women and men, including routine gynecological and breast exams for women, and prostate exams for men. Your primary care provider can also help design a customized treatment plan to keep you enjoying good health throughout your life. Your treatment plan may include:

  • Dietary adjustments, to decrease your risk of heart disease, diabetes, and obesity
  • Exercise recommendations, to increase muscle strength and decrease the risk of osteoporosis
  • Stress reduction techniques, to calm your mind, increase your focus, and promote wellness
  • Medication evaluation, to ensure you are taking the right medications, in the right dosages
  • Lifestyle adjustments, to quit smoking and tobacco use, and other harmful habits
