Primary Family Care Q & A

What is primary family care?

Primary family care is a setting where you receive all of the health services you need to reach and maintain the highest quality of life possible. As a family medicine practice, the team at Northside Primary Care brings the skills and experience necessary to work with people of all ages, from childhood through geriatric care. 


They have the drive to motivate all family members to choose primary care, ensuring the best possible care from a practitioner they know and trust. When everyone in your household partners with the same practitioner, scheduling becomes far easier to manage. 


Family medicine also simplifies billing and recordkeeping. You can even schedule visits for yourself and your children on the same day, reducing the amount of time spent driving across town for health services.

What kinds of services are available within primary family care?

Preventive medicine is the foundation of primary care. Annual physical exams and lab testing allow your practitioner to assess your current health and deliver the screenings appropriate for your age and sex. 


Illness and injuries are just part of life, but knowing where to turn makes these experiences easier to navigate. Acute care visits, also called sick visits, provide prompt diagnostic and treatment services when you or a loved one get injured or become ill. 


Chronic disease management provides the skills and treatment needed to improve your health and prevent some of the more serious consequences of chronic disease. Working in partnership with your provider, you can make great strides toward improving the way you feel and function each and every day. 

How can my primary family care provider help if I need to see a specialist?

Primary family care is the setting to meet the vast majority of your health and wellness needs. However, there may come a time when you or a loved one needs to work with a specialist to address a specific issue.


Your primary care practitioner helps you find the right specialist for your needs. Once you enter specialized care, your primary care provider remains in contact with your extended care team. This ensures continuity of care once your specialized treatment ends and also helps create a comprehensive medical record.
