Primary Care Q&A
What is primary care?
Primary care covers the full array of your fundamental health needs. Your primary care provider essentially serves as a medical home — a one-stop-shop for every medical need.
As family medicine providers, The Perdido Bay Medical Group team has extensive experience in the assessment, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of both acute and chronic health problems affecting children, adults, and geriatric patients.
What does primary care include?
Primary care is a very broad category of medicine. Some of the many primary care services you can receive at The Perdido Bay Medical Group include:
- Treatment of acute illnesses
- Chronic disease management
- Routine physical exams
- Remote health monitoring with the Chronic CareIQ system
- Health education
- Laboratory testing
- Specialist referrals when needed
- Hospital referrals in either Northwest Florida or Coastal Alabama
The Perdido Bay Medical Group is unique among family medical providers because they have extensive experience with complex disease diagnosis, management, and treatment. This special skill set allows the team to provide genuinely comprehensive medical care to their patients.
The team also offers hospice care, a service that’s extremely unusual for primary care practices. Hospice care is an in-home service that emphasizes quality of life and comfort for people living with a life-limiting illness.
The Perdido Bay Medical Group provides these primary care services in a variety of ways, including office visits with private waiting rooms, home visits (house calls), and telemedicine visits.
How often do I need primary care?
The Perdido Bay Medical Group recommends that all patients have annual physical exams to monitor their health. These yearly exams are also a good chance to learn more about chronic illnesses and how you can protect your health.
Of course, if you experience an acute illness, an injury, or have new difficulties with a chronic condition, you can count on the team for fast help.
When you call the office, simply let the team know about your issue and request the first available appointment. In most cases, they can set up a same-day visit so you can get the immediate attention you need.
