Primary Care Q&A

What is primary care?

Primary care addresses health care for your whole body. The Harrison Medical Group team offers primary care to learn about your health history, discuss any of your health concerns, and advocate for your health and wellness goals.

They also provide treatment for acute sickness, offer care for your injuries, and educate you on disease prevention. They can improve your health with many different types of treatments, including managing chronic conditions that require long-term monitoring. 

Why is primary care important?

Primary care serves as your main source of health care, providing you with an easy way to gain access to your doctor fairly quickly. For example, if you get sick, you can schedule a same-day sick visit to see your physician for care and start treatment immediately.

Primary care also helps you establish a relationship with your doctor who becomes familiar with your medical history and current condition. When your doctor gets to know you and understands your health history, you can comfortably ask questions and converse easily.
