Primary Care Q&A

What is primary care?

Primary care involves medical evaluations, diagnoses, treatments, and management of many medical conditions, both short- and long-term. It covers the basic medical care you and your family members need, including age- and gender-specific services within women’s and men’s health and adolescent medicine. 


You and your family members can rely on a single primary care provider at Arbor Mental Health & Family Medical Center LLC to cover most of your medical needs. From minor ailments like strep throat or headaches to long-term medical conditions like diabetes, your primary care provider knows you well and has the expertise to provide effective treatment. 


Primary care also includes preventive medicine, which helps you minimize your health risks and avoid major illnesses in the first place. 

Which services does primary care cover?

Arbor Mental Health & Family Medical Center LLC provides many primary care services for children, adolescents, adults, and seniors. You and your family members receive consistent care from the team, who gets to know you and understands your unique needs and preferences. 


Primary care services you might need include:


  • Physical exams
  • Medication management
  • Immunizations

  • Lab work
  • Medical weight loss


If your medical needs are outside the scope of primary care, the team at Arbor Mental Health & Family Medical Center LLC makes specialist referrals to local experts who you can trust to continue your care. 

What are the benefits of having a consistent primary care provider?

Some people don’t have a primary care provider because they’re unaware of the benefits of having one. While it might seem easier to visit whichever primary care or urgent care clinic in your area has the soonest opening at the time, trusting the same primary care provider with your health for years may result in:


  • Your provider becoming familiar with your needs, beliefs, and habits
  • More personalized health advice
  • More consistent chronic disease management
  • Staying up-to-date on preventive services like screenings and immunizations


With telehealth services available at Arbor Mental Health & Family Medical Center LLC, it’s easy to stay on track with the services you need. You can see your provider with a virtual visit even if you’re busy at work or out of town.
