Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

Primary care is patient-centered care that encompasses a wide range of preventive medicine, illnesses, and chronic conditions, such as:

  • Diabetes, arthritis, and other chronic diseases
  • Allergies, asthma, and allergic reactions
  • High blood pressure and high cholesterol
  • Skin disorders/dermatology
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Tonsillitis and ear, sinus, and lung infections
  • Annual, sports, and work-related (driver’s license) physicals
  • Injuries and chronic pain
  • Acute illnesses and infections
  • Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)

Why is primary care important?

Seeing a primary care physician regularly is important for numerous reasons including:

  • Continuity of care
  • Catching disease symptoms early before serious problems arise
  • Treating illnesses before they become severe
  • Using preventive medicine to avoid chronic disease

In some cases, catching symptoms early with proper medical care can prevent or reverse the early stages of disease. For example, detecting cancer in its early stage and receiving treatment can cause the cancer to go into remission and save your life, and making lifestyle changes when you have prediabetes helps prevent diabetes.

What are the benefits of primary care?

A Younger Look Wellness & Laser Center is a one-stop shop for most of your healthcare and aesthetic needs. Dr. Andrews gives you the time and personalized, patient-centered attention you deserve.

He values your input, which determines the direction of your treatment. For example, you might opt for weight loss and dietary changes to reduce high cholesterol rather than taking medications. Dr. Andrews recommends the least invasive options first.

If a specialist is needed during the course of your care, he refers you to the appropriate professional. Dr. Andrews takes most insurance plans, and if he doesn’t accept your insurance, he cares for you at lower, non-insurance rates.

How often should I make an appointment?

Talk with Dr. Andrews regarding how often to schedule primary care appointments. In general, schedule a wellness exam and physical annually. You may require additional visits if you have a chronic health condition that warrants more frequent monitoring.

If you’re sick, Dr. Andrews and his medical team are here for you and take same-day appointments.

When you’re due for a wellness exam, sports or work physical, or a routine checkup for chronic disease management, call A Younger Look Wellness & Laser Center to book an appointment.
