Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

When you experience an illness or injury, primary care is likely the first place you’ll turn. Primary doctors specialize in making accurate diagnoses and providing effective treatment for a wide range of conditions. Primary care is designed to give you access to high-quality medical services you need to improve and maintain your health. Primary care provides prevention, screening, and treatment for many conditions, including:

  • Asthma
  • Arthritis
  • Pneumonia
  • Allergies
  • Bronchitis
  • Flu

At EZ HealthCare, your doctor keeps track of your health and develops treatment plans based on your personal medical history. Primary care is essential to managing your health for the long term.

What is preventive medicine?

Prevention is a key component of primary care. Preventive medicine is designed to help you minimize your health risks and avoid a number of serious health concerns like heart disease or high cholesterol. Preventive medicine works by using several different evaluations (like lab tests and physical exams) to determine the overall status of your health.

Preventive medicine helps you and your doctor stay on top of your health risks and make the appropriate changes needed to prevent your health from declining. With preventive medicine, you can maintain the health and function of your body for years to come.

What is chronic disease management?

Although prevention is the best approach, certain conditions are unavoidable. Chronic conditions require ongoing care to minimize symptoms and prevent further complications with your health. At EZ HealthCare, the team provides medical management for a number of chronic conditions, including:

  • Diabetes
  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • High blood pressure
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Thyroid disorders

There is typically no cure for chronic conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure. However, with the right treatment and lifestyle changes, you can minimize the effects of your condition and restore your health. Issues like obesity and inactivity are commonly linked to a number of serious conditions.

In addition to treatments like medication and insulin therapy, Dr. Jabeen and her team focus on healthy lifestyle habits and weight loss management as a key component to chronic disease management. The team works with you to develop a treatment plan that’s specific to your condition, medical history, and personal health.
