Primary Care Q & A

Express Family Clinic

Why is primary care essential?

Think of your primary care provider as an expert facilitator and monitor of your health. At Express Family Clinic, Drs. Modi and Parihar are both board-certified in family medicine, which means they provide care for all members of your family, from the very youngest to the very oldest.

Rather than concentrating on a specific area, your doctor has a clear understanding of your overall health and how the different parts work together as a whole. Specialists are trained to have tunnel vision and provide excellent care for only one aspect of your health, but a primary care provider has a clearer understanding of the overall picture and gathers valuable baseline information for any future problems.

What does a primary care provider offer?

Primary care providers offer two valuable services:

Ongoing monitoring

Through annual physicals, your primary care doctor at Express Family Clinic keeps a watchful eye on your health and can spot any trends long before they turn into full-blown medical problems. During your annual physical, your doctor checks you from head to toe, inside and out, and because of their history with you, they know where to concentrate their efforts.

Your primary care doctor also handles your screening schedule, ensuring that you get the proper testing for your situation. For example, cancer screenings, such as mammograms and colonoscopies, can be arranged through your primary care doctor.

Referral

The second aspect of an excellent primary care provider is their ability to ensure that you get the expert help you need. If you suffer from cardiovascular issues, for example, Drs. Modi and Parihar make sure you get the specialized medical help you need and monitor your progress along the way to make sure he meets all of your health care needs.

Does primary care include lifestyle considerations?

Your primary care doctor at Express Family Clinic pays close attention to your lifestyle and suggests ways you can improve your health. Your primary care provider often makes valuable lifestyle suggestions, such as:

  • Quitting smoking
  • Curbing alcohol use
  • Losing weight
  • Getting more physically active
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Guarding your sexual health
  • Vaccination updates

The doctors at Express Family Clinic take your health seriously and work with you, and your family members, to make sure you lead happy, active, and healthy lives.
