Frequently Asked Questions

Are there related procedures to a primary care visit?

Related procedures to a primary care visit include diagnostic tests (like blood tests, imaging studies), vaccinations, screening tests for various diseases (such as diabetes, hypertension, and cancer screenings), minor surgical procedures (like wart removal or suturing minor wounds), and health counseling (on topics such as nutrition, smoking cessation, and exercise). At ClearMD, our approach also involves coordinating with specialists for more complex health needs, ensuring a comprehensive approach to patient health and well-being.

What can you expect during a primary care visit?

During your visit, you can expect an evaluation of your overall health, which may include a physical examination, discussion of your medical history, and any current symptoms or health concerns. Your care provider may order tests or screenings to assess your health more thoroughly or monitor chronic conditions. You’ll have the opportunity to discuss preventive care strategies, lifestyle modifications, and any other health-related questions. If necessary, the provider can also refer you to our on-site specialists for further evaluation or treatment, all while coordinating your care.

What are the potential costs for a primary care visit?

The potential costs for a primary care visit can vary widely based on the services provided, whether you have insurance, and the insurance plan’s coverage details. Basic visits for check-ups or minor illnesses might incur lower costs, while visits involving extensive testing or procedures can be more expensive. We offer flexible payment options to accommodate different financial situations, and insurance typically covers a substantial portion of the visit cost, subject to deductibles and copays.

What is primary care?

Primary care refers to the range of healthcare services for the general management of health, including preventive care, chronic disease management, and aftercare for adults, adolescents, and children. Primary care practitioners address a wide spectrum of health issues, coordinate care with specialists, and focus on maintaining overall patient health through regular check-ups, health education, and personalized advice.

What is the followup and recovery like for a primary care visit?

Follow-up and recovery after a primary care visit depend on the nature of the visit and any findings. For general check-ups or preventive visits, follow-up may simply involve scheduling the next routine appointment. If specific issues are identified or treatments initiated, follow-up appointments may be necessary to monitor progress, adjust treatments, or manage any chronic conditions. Recovery from any treatments started during primary care visits, such as medication adjustments for chronic diseases, is closely monitored by the provider, with guidance provided on managing any side effects or changes in condition.

What are the potential risks for a primary care visit?

The potential risks associated with a primary care visit are generally minimal, mostly involving the discomfort of certain examinations or the possibility of anxiety related to health concerns or diagnosis. There’s also a small risk of complications from minor procedures performed during some visits, such as blood draws. However, these risks are outweighed by the benefits of early detection and management of health issues, guidance on preventive care, and the establishment of a health baseline for future reference.

Why are primary care appointments performed?

Primary care appointments are performed to monitor and manage overall health, diagnose and treat common medical conditions, and prevent future health issues through regular check-ups and screenings. These appointments enable early detection of diseases, management of chronic conditions, and guidance on lifestyle choices that promote well-being. They also serve as a gateway for referrals to specialists.

How do I prepare for my primary care appointment?

To prepare for your appointment, gather relevant medical records, including past illnesses, surgeries, vaccinations, and current medications or supplements. Make a list of symptoms, concerns, and questions you have about your health. Knowing your family medical history can provide valuable insights for preventive care. Bring identification, insurance information, and understand your payment options.

What is same day care?

Same day care is immediate medical attention for non-life-threatening conditions, offering a convenient alternative to emergency room visits for acute issues.

What can you expect during your same day care visit?

Expect a brief wait, a consultation with your provider, possible diagnostic tests, and treatment for your condition.

What is the followup and recovery like for a same day care visit?

Follow-up might involve home care instructions, prescription medications, or referrals to specialists for further treatment. It all depends on the reason for your visit.
