Do you only go to the doctor when you’re sick? For many people, and for many reasons, getting medical help is a “last resort.” At QueensCare Health Centers, we want to help patients get the care they need and proactively take charge of their health. This is why our Primary Care services focus on quality care and preventive care.
Primary care is the “first stop” in the health care journey. If you’re feeling sick, worried about a symptom, or want to make sure your health is at its best, you should see a primary care provider. Primary care providers include General Practitioner doctors, pharmacists, or nurses. These providers are ready to listen to your concerns and evaluate your wellbeing. They will then help you understand your health care options and the next steps you should take.
“Preventive care” means taking steps to prevent disease before it happens. It can also include testing to find health problems before they become life-changing. By seeing primary care providers often, you give them the chance to get to know you and your lifestyle. They can then suggest screenings, vaccinations, and tests that can provide a full picture of your health and wellbeing.
Being supported by a network of primary care providers builds trust and understanding. Because they know you, providers can give you the best care and quality of life. Our team of doctors, nurse practitioners, case managers, and pharmacists are ready to give you a medical “home” you can depend on.
