Primary Care Q & A

New Hope Medical Clinic

What is a Primary Care Practice?

A primary care practice is essentially the focal point or home for all your healthcare services. When you select a primary care practice as your medical home, you choose the opportunity to establish with a medical provider who remembers your name, has access to records regarding your health history, and knows when to schedule your next set of screening health labs.

The primary care practitioners at New Hope Medical Clinic are equipped to diagnose and treat sudden and long-term chronic illnesses, see your kids for school physicals, and promote health through patient education. You can rely on them to ensure you get the quality medical care you deserve in a welcoming and caring environment.

What are the Advantages of Primary Care?

Healthcare providers in large medical facilities or urgent care clinics are often meeting you for the first time every time. Your primary care professional is familiar with your medical history and has insight into what’s normal for you. This familiarity often enables your primary care practitioner to quickly recognize symptoms that may signal an underlying health issue or worsening control of your diabetes, heart disease, or other serious conditions.

It’s human nature to feel more relaxed with someone you know, especially when it comes to sharing concerns about your health. Recognizing friendly faces can greatly relieve your stress and anxiety about medical visits and treatment. As a patient at New Hope Medical Clinic, you can rely on advanced technology and treatment methods for your illness delivered by a practitioner who knows you as a person rather than a name on their appointment schedule.

As the manager of your health care, your primary care provider also understands when it’s time you see a surgeon about your gallbladder pain or check in with a urologist for persistent urinary symptoms. Your provider can cut through the confusion of choosing a specialist and help coordinate your appointments.  

When Should I See a Primary Care Provider?

Barring a health crisis or traumatic injury that requires treatment at the nearest emergency department, you can see your primary care provider for all your health care needs, including:

  • Annual checkups and other physical exams, including work, school, and sports physicals
  • Colds, earaches, stomach viruses, and a myriad of other common illnesses
  • Diagnosis and medical management of diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, asthma, and other chronic illnesses
