Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

Primary care refers to the services you receive from health professionals trained to provide the first contact and take care of all your ongoing health concerns. 

What does first contact mean? It means that your designated primary care provider is the first person you call any time you have a health concern.

Whether you develop a sudden illness, need ongoing care for chronic disease, or need to find a specialist, you contact Dr. Abrar. He offers comprehensive treatment and coordinates your care with other doctors or service providers in the community.

What services will I receive from my primary care provider?

Dr. Abrar provides all the same services you would expect from a family physician or internal medicine practitioner. The services offered may include:

  • Preventive care
  • Women’s health care
  • Men’s health care
  • Sick visits
  • Annual wellness check-ups 
  • Health screenings
  • Vaccinations
  • Medication management
  • Weight loss management
  • Mental health treatment
  • Treatment for acute injuries
  • Treatment for acute disease flare-ups

Dr. Abrar coordinates your care when you need treatment from a specialist or an interdisciplinary team. He also helps you find community resources and services.

Do primary care providers offer chronic disease management?

Dr. Abrar offers chronic disease management. With ongoing lifestyle and medical care, you can stay healthy even when you have a disease that currently doesn’t have a cure.

Chronic diseases frequently managed by Dr. Abrar include:

  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Joint pain and other chronic pain
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Allergies and asthma
  • Obesity

The type of chronic disease management you receive depends on your underlying condition. If you have diabetes, disease management focuses on keeping your blood sugar within normal limits. 

Dr. Abrar helps you manage chronic pain with exercise, non-narcotic medications, and interventional treatments.

Dr. Abrar helps you prevent and manage chronic diseases by focusing on lifestyle factors. For example, he may provide weight loss management, create an exercise regimen, or include physical therapy in your plan. He also prescribes medications when needed.

We are a primary care practice and offer annual physicals. Call us to book your appointment today.
