Primary Care Q&A

What is primary care?

Primary care includes health care services to manage acute and chronic medical conditions and to lower your risk for chronic disease.

The primary care providers at Clinica Medica Hispana offer a range of health care services for children and adults, including:

  • Annual physicals
  • Sick visits
  • Electrocardiogram (EKG)
  • Ultrasound
  • Immunizations
  • Pregnancy testing
  • Sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing
  • Chronic disease management

The providers also offer specialized physicals, including immigration physicals, Department of Transportation (DOT) physicals, sports physicals, and school physicals.

When should I schedule a primary care visit?

The Clinica Medica Hispana team recommends that adults and children schedule a routine wellness visit once a year so they can track changes in your health from one year to the next.

You should also book a primary care appointment if you have symptoms of an acute illness that requires medical attention, such as:

  • Pain
  • High fever
  • Sore throat
  • Chronic cough
  • Nasal congestion
  • Open wounds
  • Heartburn
  • Shortness of breath
  • Diarrhea or constipation
  • Urinary tract infection (UTI)

If you have a chronic disease, you may need to schedule routine office visits to ensure your condition is well-controlled. The team can determine how often you need check-ups based on the condition you have and its severity.

In addition to long-term physical illnesses like asthma, diabetes, and high blood pressure (hypertension), the providers provide services to address mental health issues like depression.

What happens during a primary care visit?

During your initial primary care visit at Clinica Medica Hispana, the medical specialists review your personal and family medical histories and discuss any concerns you have about your health. They also complete a comprehensive physical exam.

Routine visits may also include:

  • Blood pressure screenings
  • Lab tests
  • Immunizations
  • Mental health evaluations

If you’re visiting for an acute illness, the providers may request blood work or other tests to confirm your diagnosis. The on-site lab provides fast, accurate results for some conditions, and the team customizes a care plan to help you feel better.

Primary care visits are also a great time to learn strategies you can use to improve your health. The team provides weight loss management services to help you achieve a healthy body weight. They also offer nutritional counseling, exercise recommendations, and stress reduction techniques to enhance your quality of life.
