What happens during my appointment?

When you arrive at Premier Primary Care, you’re greeted by warm, welcoming staff. Your provider checks your blood pressure, weight, pulse, and other vital signs. They review your medical history and complete a physical exam. Your primary care doctor evaluates your ears, eyes, nose, throat, heartbeat, breathing, reflexes, and abdomen.

They might recommend diagnostic screening tests, such as blood tests, throat or nasal swabs, skin biopsies, or imaging procedures, to screen for or rule out medical problems. For example, your doctor can screen for:

  • STDs
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • High triglycerides
  • Certain forms of cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Flu or strep throat
  • Asthma and allergies
  • Other infections
  • Heart disease


They also offer vaccinations to protect you and your family from certain communicable diseases.


Will I require treatment?

Based on the results of your physical exam and diagnostic testing, your primary care doctor might suggest the following treatments:

Lifestyle changes

Making lifestyle changes can reduce chronic disease risk factors. Examples include weight loss, healthy eating, regular exercise, stress reduction, and avoiding tobacco and excessive alcohol. 

Medications

Taking over-the-counter or prescription medications can help you better manage chronic diseases, acute illnesses, and accompanying symptoms.

Aesthetic services

The Premier Primary Care team offers aesthetic services to reduce signs of aging. Examples include skin rejuvenation using Cynosure® TempSure® Envi radiofrequency and Cynosure Icon™ laser technology to reduce wrinkles, acne scars, and other skin imperfections.
