What is primary care?

Primary care describes a wide range of health care services that address your overall health needs. The Lakepointe Direct Primary Care team focuses on establishing an ongoing relationship with their primary care patients to assist them with all of their health needs and goals.

During a primary care consultation, the team can address both acute and chronic conditions, including:

  • Diabetes
  • Heart health
  • Sleep apnea
  • Allergies and asthma
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)

The team also offers sick visits in-office and through a convenient telehealth platform to address respiratory infections, headaches, and unexplained pain.

Why should I schedule a primary care consultation?

You should schedule a primary care consultation with the Lakepointe Direct Primary Care team to access expert medical care whenever you need it.

The team offers primary care services to the whole family. They listen to your concerns carefully and with empathy and work with you to improve your long-term health.

Everyone should have a primary care provider for routine physicals and vaccinations. But you need access to high-quality primary health care if you have a long-term health problem like heart disease or diabetes.

What happens during a primary care consultation?

During your primary care consultation, the Lakepointe Direct Primary Care team reviews your personal and family medical histories. You can also expect to discuss your lifestyle, diet, and any concerns you have about your physical or mental health.

The team completes a physical exam and usually requests blood work, urine testing, or other diagnostic tests to understand your health. They can also evaluate the medications you’re taking for underlying medical conditions to ensure they’re working as they should.

If testing reveals a chronic disease, the team customizes a treatment plan. The team also continues to monitor your health over time to reduce your risk of complications of conditions like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes.

In addition to treating existing health problems, the primary care team can recommend lifestyle and dietary changes that support your long-term health. They can also refer you to a specialist if you need additional diagnostic testing or treatment for specific diseases.
