Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

Primary care can be thought of as the starting point for all health and wellness services. Your primary care physician gets to know you and your unique needs, strengths, and challenges. That allows Dr. Sahay to create a customized health management system designed just for you. 

Routine annual physicals are the foundation of preventive and primary care. These visits allow Dr. Sahay to assess your overall condition and provide the screenings appropriate for your age, sex, and overall health. Wellness exams are also available.

If you or a loved one becomes ill, sick visits can help you begin a treatment path as quickly as possible. That is especially helpful for those with cold and flu symptoms, as COVID-19 testing is available to help determine the cause of your discomfort.

Primary care can also be a source of health guidance and support to help you maximize your body’s potential. Even elite athletes and fitness enthusiasts acknowledge the role that great primary and preventive care plays in overall health and wellness. 

 

Why see a doctor if I’m not sick?

Far too many people only see their doctor when they become injured or ill. That approach fails to take advantage of all primary care offers.

To begin, no one is at their best when they are sick or hurt. Waiting to see a doctor until your circumstances are dire makes it difficult to form a partnership with your physician. Also, sporadic office visits do not enable you to build an expansive personal medical record — a living document that charts your health and wellness data over time.

 

What if I need to see a specialist?

A wide range of health concerns can be adequately addressed at DOCCS. If a need arises that cannot be met, Dr. Sahay can tap into her professional network to help you find the care you need.

Occasionally, you may need specialized medical care. In those instances, Dr. Sahay can help you find the right specialist to meet your needs. Once you begin specialized care, Dr. Sahay remains in close contact with your extended health team.

Details of your treatments are added to your personal medical record once specialized care ends, and you’ll enjoy a smooth transition back into primary care.

If you have additional questions about the importance of primary care services, call the office today to schedule a personalized visit. Online scheduling is also an option and can be done from home any time of day or night.
