Primary care is a branch of medicine that focuses on caring for the whole person. Primary care experts like Debra diagnose and treat most illnesses, offer counseling, and monitor your health over time.
Primary care also provides diagnosis and treatment of chronic diseases like high blood pressure and diabetes. In short, it provides a one-stop-shop for all of your health and wellness needs.
At Access2care, Debra offers several types of primary care, including:
Family practice is a type of primary care that treats people of all ages, from infants to senior citizens. At Access2care, Debra offers family medicine services, allowing you and all of your loved ones to receive the medical care you need under one roof.
General medicine, or internal medicine, provides preventive and general health services for adults. Like family practice, general medicine includes diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic illness, preventive screenings, immunizations, and health counseling.
Women’s health is a branch of primary care that caters specifically to women. This includes preventive screenings like Pap tests and mammograms, family planning services like birth control, and prenatal care.
Pediatrics is a branch of primary care that focuses on infants, children, and teenagers. This includes preventive measures like immunizations, annual sports physicals, and treatment of common acute problems like strep throat, the flu, and the common cold.
Neurology is a branch of primary care that diagnoses and addresses problems that affect your brain, nerves, and spinal cord. Some of the most common neurological problems that Debra treats include migraines, seizure disorders, and strokes.
At Access2care, Debra and the team provide all types of diagnostic testing, including blood panels, urinalysis, stool samples, and diagnostic imaging. These measures play a critical role in diagnosing all kinds of illnesses, and in developing custom care plans.
Debra is capable of diagnosing and treating most acute and chronic problems. However, if you require surgical intervention or further testing, she can refer you to a specialist. Debra maintains good working relationships with many medical professionals in the area and can coordinate your care.
