Prepare to bring a list of medications you are currently taking, as well as documents or other items you think you need to properly assess your health and wellness.
Primary care providers treat a wide variety of conditions. They will be your first call whenever you have a
medical issue that does not qualify as an emergency or require specialty care.
Conditions treated include:

Some of these conditions may require additional care from a specialist. However, many specialty care providers require a medical referral before they will see you. Your primary care provider can provide preliminary care and provide you with a referral if more advanced care is needed.
