Primary Care Services at Innovative Family Health
Every person deserves a caring, knowledgeable primary care physician. At Innovative Family Health, Dr. Randall can help you stay well or get well. Equally important, our medical team wants to help you manage chronic conditions and deal with major health changes.
What is Primary Care?
At one time, most doctors were primary care physicians. They treated the entire spectrum of illnesses. However, with the number of specialists in everything from feet to hearts, the role of primary care provider has changed.
Today’s primary care doctor seeks to create a lasting relationship with the patient. The goal is to help you manage risks and maintain as much control as possible over your own health. When chronic illnesses, aging or injury enter the picture, the primary care doctor is a partner for you to rely on.
Regular checkups help identify and treat common conditions. Lifestyle changes, medication management, and preventive care are all part of the umbrella of primary care. Among our offerings, you’ll find:
- Health screenings
- Patient education
- Disease management
- Non-narcotic pain control
Pediatricians are a subset of primary care doctors that treat children. However, Dr. Randall is board certified in family medicine and regularly cares for patients age 12 and up. Likewise, while he is not a geriatric specialist, his work in physical rehabilitation, surgical alternatives, and other anti-aging techniques have made him especially well-versed in the needs of our aging population.
Innovative Family Health makes it easy for you to manage the health of your entire family. From teens to great-grandparents, our patients enjoy care that caters to their individual needs.
What are the Most Common Conditions in Primary Care?
Rather than spend money on a specialist, your first stop should be to your primary care doctor for diagnosis and treatment. Primary care medicine gives you access to safe and effective medical treatment based on your personal health. If a problem is spotted that can’t be handled by your primary care doctor, you will get a referral to a specialist.
Short-term Problems include:
- Strep throat
- Sprains and Strains
- Viral and Bacterial Infections
Chronic conditions include:
- High blood pressure/high cholesterol
