What Makes Our Primary Care Visits So Efficient?

If you’re relatively healthy, chances are you only see your primary care physician a few times each year — once for your yearly wellness exam or physical, once or twice when you have a bad cold or some other contagious illness you just can’t seem to shake, and maybe once more for your annual flu shot.

Your primary care doctor may be the first one you turn to when you’re sick or experiencing worrisome symptoms, but helping you get healthy is just one of their objectives. Their other goal, which they aim to accomplish through comprehensive preventive care and ongoing patient education, is to help you stay as healthy as possible throughout your life.

Here at Innovative Family Health Practices LLC, we recognize that exceptional primary care is a team effort that requires a high level of training, skill, organization, coordination, and respect. Here’s what makes our approach just as efficient as it is effective.

Complete, high-quality care

You rely on your primary care doctor to meet most of your health care needs, ranging from wellness and prevention to acute care and chronic disease management. As a board-certified family medicine physician who’s dedicated to providing high-quality care to patients aged 12 and up, Dr. Randall is specially trained to:

  • Conduct physical exams and wellness checkups
  • Perform routine preventive health screenings
  • Investigate and diagnose unexplained symptoms
  • Diagnose and treat acute illnesses and injuries
  • Manage & improve chronic disease with coordinated care

To deliver such an exhaustive range of services without sacrificing quality, consistency, or efficiency, Dr. Randall relies on two things: his 30+ years of experience and a supportive team of qualified practitioners, licensed physician assistants, and certified care coordinators.

Organized, efficient care

Providing organized patient-centered care that’s as efficient as it is effective is one of the central principles of any top-tier primary care provider, and Innovative Family Health Practices LLC is no exception.

So what’s the secret to delivering thoughtful, comprehensive care that places your health needs and personal preferences first? The strongest patient-physician relationships are built on trust.

A solid patient-physician relationship begins with respect, and to that end, we provide readily available appointments that prioritize your care and keep you out of the waiting room. A secure patient-physician relationship is also a lot like a partnership, in that it empowers you with the information, resources, and support you need to actively engage in your care.

Efficient primary care is convenient, too — in addition to providing high-quality, personalized care without the wait, we also offer comprehensive on-site diagnostic testing and phlebotomy services and 24/7 access to an online patient portal that helps you keep track of test results, recommended screenings, and upcoming appointments.

Confident, coordinated care

Primary care doesn’t mean basic care — it means confident care. Dr. Randall’s comprehensive training and far-reaching expertise extends to a variety of specialized areas, including:

  • Chronic disease management and improvement (diabetes, hypertension)
  • Dementia evaluation, management, and potential normalization
  • Infectious disease treatment (respiratory, urinary, reproductive)
  • Allergy testing, management, and desensitization (immunotherapy)
  • Musculoskeletal disorder treatment (joint pain and spinal disease)
  • Comprehensive weight loss and lifestyle improvement strategies

As a coordinated care provider, Dr. Randall also serves as your point of access to a wide range of medical experts that specialize in very specific health care needs, ranging from orthopedic surgeons to oncology physicians, maternal-fetal medicine specialists, psychiatrists, and more.

For patients who are living with multiple chronic illnesses, coordinated care may also include medication management, a systematic and comprehensive approach to eliminate unnecessary medications and reduce the risk of side effects and drug interactions.

Reliable, patient-focused care

Here at Innovative Family Health Practices LLC, we’re passionate about providing the kind of patient-centered primary care that makes adolescent and adult patients of all ages happy to call us their primary care medical home.
