What happens during a primary care visit?

A primary care visit involves numerous steps, which include:

  • Health history update

At the beginning of any primary care visit, whether it’s in person or via video, the team asks you about your overall health and, if applicable, touches base concerning your chronic care management. 

This is also a time to express any concerns you have with your current health or treatments. 

  • Vitals check

If you’re visiting in person, the team then checks your vitals, which include your temperature, blood pressure, respiration, and heart rate. 

  • Lab services

If you have specific concerns, the team may run lab services like: 

  • Standard blood work
  • Strep throat testing
  • Internal normalized ratio (INR) testing
  • Flu testing
  • Urinalysis 

You may also receive a flu shot, along with any booster shots you may need. If you have an injury, the team can also provide wound suturing, sling placement, or bandage wrapping.

  • Prescription update

At the end of both in-person and virtual primary care visits, the team can prescribe medication refills or adjustments and issue new prescriptions.

Primary care is vital to your health, which is why it’s important to choose a PCP that cares. For the highest quality and most accessible primary care, schedule an appointment with Health and Wellness Medical Services online or over the phone today.
