Primary Care Q & A
What is primary care?
To provide consistent, informed medical services, there’s no substitute for a trusting relationship between the patient and medical care providers. While this was the strength of the family doctor role in the past, the complexity of modern medicine sometimes interferes with connection between patient and doctor. The primary care principle puts the focus back on that valuable relationship.
Dr. Patel is skilled in both first contact care and comprehensive continued care for any patient. His training covers a broad range of specialties, including internal medicine, family medicine and pediatrics. Along with disease treatment, primary care often provides an educational component, promoting wellness and relieving symptoms. In addition to primary care medicine, Medical Solution Center provides some of the most sought-after aesthetic services, often essential to the confidence and esteem of its patients.
What primary care services does Medical Solution Center provide?
Of the over 900 million doctor’s office visits made in America each year, about 53% of these patients saw their primary care physician. The most common complaint leading to the doctor’s office is a cough, while hypertension is the most diagnosed condition. That serves to illustrate the range of medical care Dr. Patel and his team provide.
On any given day he may treat minor illnesses or injuries, such as a cough or a simple cut, perform joint injections, or diagnose diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, COPD, and asthma. As a primary care physician, Dr. Patel has to be ready for anything that comes through his doorway.
With regular exposure to his patients, Dr. Patel is well-placed to see change, both positive and negative, in his regular patients, whether it’s in their physical, emotional or spiritual health. Managing chronic health conditions often benefits from the consistency of care that only a primary care doctor – who knows the patient – can provide.
What extra services beyond primary care does Medical Solution Center offer?
Complementing its primary care mission, the team at Medical Solution Center performs in-office lab work to reduce wait times for test results. Same-day visits, when possible, are often key to patient care and comfort. Dr. Patel’s interest in aesthetic dermatology makes the addition of popular cosmetic procedures a natural fit for Medical Solution Center.
