Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

Primary care is a medical specialty that can cover all of your essential health and wellness needs while allowing you to visit the same physician throughout your life. As a family medicine and primary care specialist, Dr. Mohtashami stays abreast of the latest research in medicine to provide top-tier care for her regular patients. 

Dr. Mohtashami strives to make her office a single location where you can access high-end medical care that helps you maintain or improve your health and manage any chronic diseases you may have. You can also trust Dr. Mohtashami to make specialist referrals when a condition falls outside her expertise. 

Which services does primary care include?

Your primary care physician, Dr. Mohtashami, covers almost all medical services you probably need to access regularly. She also specializes in treating all age groups, so the whole family gets consistent medical care in the same place.

At her office, you and your family members can get:

Preventive medicine

Preventive health care is the care you receive that helps you stay healthy, not manage illnesses. It includes physical exams, screening tests, and vaccinations. 

Women’s health care

Women’s health care covers the maintenance and treatments for women’s sexual and reproductive health. If you’re over the age of 21 or sexually active at a younger age than that, you should schedule well-woman checkups every year. 

Sick visits

Sick visits are appointments you schedule when you suspect something’s going on with your health. During these appointments, you report your symptoms to Dr. Mohtashami, who can then conduct tests, make a diagnosis, and provide treatment. 

Chronic disease management

Chronic disease management can help you if you live with one or more long-term illnesses. Dr. Mohtashami routinely assists patients living with diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, and heart disease. 

How often should I come in for primary care?

Some people require more frequent primary care visits than others. If nothing else, you should come in at least once a year for your annual exam. Dr. Mohtashami can tell you if she believes you would benefit from visiting more frequently in order to keep up with any current diseases or any major health risks.

You may also make primary care visits on an as-needed basis. Whenever you’re not feeling well, you can use your best judgment to decide if you need an official diagnosis and treatment for your illness.
