Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

Your primary care medicine provider is the first place you go when you have problems with your health. Primary care services also provide regular health checkups and screenings, immunization programs, and other preventive health measures.

Regenerative Medical Group’s team of doctors, pharmacists, nutritionists, and nurses provides first-class primary care services. They diagnose common medical complaints, manage your everyday health concerns, and help you live a healthier life.

If you have a condition that needs a medical specialist, your provider at Regenerative Medical Group can refer you to the appropriate service. The practice has strong links with local hospitals and specialists to ensure that you get the best possible care.

When would I use primary care?

Primary care services help prevent ill health, so you use the services for any relevant health checks or screenings, including:

  • Annual physicals
  • Well-woman exams
  • Pap smears
  • Immunizations
  • Cholesterol checks
  • Blood sugar monitoring
  • Blood pressure monitoring 
  • Cancer screening
  • STD testing

You also use primary care services to get treatment for injuries and illnesses that aren’t emergencies, like:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Back problems
  • Respiratory illnesses
  • Skin complaints
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Fatigue
  • Wounds
  • Fever

The third role of primary care is to support you if you have a chronic disease. The Regenerative Medical Group provides regular checkups and tests and ongoing support for people who have problems like:

  • Diabetes
  • Eczema
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Chronic pain
  • Depression
  • Fibromyalgia
  • High blood pressure
  • Immune system disorders
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Thyroid problems

You can also benefit from the Regenerative Medical Group team’s knowledge to help you live a healthier life. They can provide information and support on issues like stopping smoking, losing weight, reducing stress, and keeping fit, all of which are essential for good health.

What kinds of treatments are used in primary care?

The treatment you receive at Regenerative Medical Group could be allopathic, osteopathic, or a blend of the two.

Allopathic medicine is the conventional approach to health care. Allopathic doctors use treatments like medications, radiation, and surgery to treat illnesses.

Osteopathic medicine uses the technology and other tools used in allopathic medicine but takes a more holistic (whole-body) approach. Osteopaths use a hands-on method of diagnosis and treatment known as osteopathic manipulative medicine.

At Regenerative Medical Group, they combine these two approaches to provide patients with the most effective treatment programs.
