Primary Care Services
Primary means “first.” At Golden Health and Wellness, we provide a first-line defense team to help you remain as healthy as possible. A primary care physician is a critical part of this team. Our primary care providers are kind, caring, and knowledgeable, providing you with the best preventative healthcare.
Sometimes people only go to the doctor when they feel unwell, and typically they’ll use an urgent care or the emergency room. However, establishing with a primary care doctor and keeping regular appointments gives you the best opportunity to stay healthy and stay ahead of problems. Over time, the PCP will get to know you personally, as well as issues in your medical history. Remaining with the same provider also ensures that your physician has quick access to your medical records and immunization history. Medication management becomes more effective as your doctor will have an updated list and can watch for side effects and interactions.
Plus, your personal family doctor knows you best and knows what symptoms to watch for in case you require specialized care.
At your primary care visit, our nurses and physicians will take the time to get to know you. We encourage you to bring your important healthcare questions to your visit so we can understand your top concerns. It’s also essential to bring along a list of medications, including prescriptions and any over-the-counter items you may take so we can watch for interactions and maintain a complete medical history in your chart.
At Golden Health and Wellness, our primary care doctors focus on internal medicine, aging and mobility concerns, mental health issues, and much more. We can arrange for wellness screenings such as routine blood work, urine checks, and blood pressure monitoring. We also specialize in screening for disease processes related to asthma, heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, obesity, anxiety, and depression. If your particular problem should ever require the skills of a specialist, our physicians can make that referral for you and help you access the care you need.
If you’re new to Miami-Dade county and surrounding areas and need to establish with a new provider, give us a call. If you wish for protection from flu season, require an annual physical, or if you have symptoms that have crept up on you, our family doctors can address these needs and help you stay ahead of problems.
