Primary Care Q&A

What is primary care?

Primary care is the gateway to health services, being the first point of contact for everything health related, including:

  • Everyday health problems
  • Treatment of minor ailments
  • Health checkups and routine physical exams
  • Management of chronic health conditions
  • Health screening tests and exams
  • Immunization programs
  • Advice on leading a healthier lifestyle
  • Weight loss programs

The team at Kokoro Health & Wellness provides outstanding primary care that covers a comprehensive range of non-urgent medical services. If you need to see a specialist, Kokoro Health & Wellness can advise you and refer you to an appropriate physician or hospital.

Do I need to use primary care services if I feel well?

If you’re in good health, you still need to see Kokoro Health & Wellness for an annual physical, where they can check all your vital signs and how well everything’s functioning. Physicals are essential for picking up early signs of many types of health conditions that respond well to timely treatment but could cause serious harm to your health and even be fatal if a diagnosis isn’t made soon enough.

Preventive medicine makes a significant contribution to keeping you healthy and avoiding the effects of infection and disease, and the team at Kokoro Health & Wellness is committed to providing preventive measures as part of their primary care services. Preventive medicine isn’t just about immunization and screening, but helping people lead healthier lives to combat the rise in preventable illnesses like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and hypertension.

What kinds of conditions does primary care treat?

Unless you have a medical emergency and need to go straight to the hospital, you would use primary care services at Kokoro Health & Wellness for all types of health problems. Injuries like sprains, strains, and back problems, and common illnesses like colds, flu, stomach upsets, rashes, headaches, and fevers are all best dealt with at a primary care office.
