Primary Care / Family Medicine
At Elevate Health, your primary care/family medicine provider addresses your healthcare needs at all stages of life, including health promotion, disease prevention, health maintenance, counseling, patient education, diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic illnesses. They are your first stop for evaluation of undiagnosed symptoms. Your primary care provider serves as a focal point for all needed health care services. At Elevate Health, they are able to get to know you well because of the smaller size of their patient panel that they manage, and the extended visit times that we have. They learn to understand your unique perspective, needs and preferences. They are proactive with recommendations for regular, annual physical exams and screening tests. They are available for urgent visits (usually same day) for acute illnesses or injuries. They are also on call 24 hours per day, 7 days per week if you need urgent after-hours attention. They can manage medications you may be taking. They will refer you to specialists when appropriate. They enjoy and are experienced in caring for people of all ages, from newborns to the elderly.
