What is primary care?

Primary care is medical care from a provider who manages all your basic health needs. At Merak Health, the team knows that you need providers you can trust and rely upon for your medical care, so they focus on delivering compassionate and convenient care to all their patients. With help from the team, you can get healthy and avoid serious illnesses.

When should I see my primary care provider?

Merak Health recommends visiting your primary care providers once a year for annual physical exams. An annual physical exam is an overall wellness checkup where the team screens for problems like high blood sugar, high cholesterol, and diabetes.

An annual physical exam is also an ideal time to assess any chronic diseases. If you have a condition like diabetes or arthritis, the team monitors the effectiveness of your current treatment plan and, if necessary, helps you make any changes to your plan.

Annual physicals focus on the preventive side of health, but the primary care providers at Merak Health also offer acute care for other issues such as:

  • Ear infections
  • Allergies
  • Strep throat
  • COVID-19
  • Influenza (flu)
  • Colds
  • Asthma

If you have sudden symptoms or new problems with a chronic condition you already have, reach out to the primary care team at Merak Health to arrange a visit immediately.

How can I receive primary care?

The primary care team at Merak Health offer both in-office appointments and house calls. Most primary care services, including lab tests, are available in your own home.

If you schedule a house call, the team reviews your medical history and individual health concerns before the appointment, so they’re prepared to meet your needs.

Does primary care cover specialized medical needs?

Primary care covers all essential medical needs, including heart disease, lung disease, or skin conditions. However, if you need specialized care beyond what the team can provide, they will help refer you to a specialist who can provide the care that you need.
