Integrative Health Centers do so much more than offering treatment for addiction. We can also assist you with your primary medical care needs. However, with so many types of doctors out in the world today, you may be confused about what we mean when we say that we offer primary medical care services. However, it’s not nearly as complicated as it sounds.
What are Primary Medical Care Services?
A doctor who provides primary medical care is often called a primary care doctor. Primary care doctors are essentially your best friend in the medical world because they hold the key to the wealth of knowledge in the medical community. Your primary care doctor is the doctor you see if you have a stomach ache or a nasty rash. Often, they will either provide you with the answer to what’s wrong with you or send you to a specialist.
That’s the key. While a podiatrist is a foot doctor and a gynecologist handles women’s health concerns, a primary care doctor does a little bit of everything. Most importantly, primary care doctors provide you with preventative health care services. Most doctors recommend you see your primary care doctor at least once a year for a check-up. There, they’ll keep you up to date on your vaccinations. They’ll also check your heartbeat and lungs to make sure you’re still healthy. In general, their job is to try to answer any pressing questions you may have about your health.
It’s essential to see your primary care doctor at least once a year. They can help you encourage you to live a healthy lifestyle that works with your life. They can also catch serious problems early enough that it may still be reversible. If the doctor doesn’t detect the early signs, often certain conditions are much more challenging to treat.
What Makes Integrative Health Centers Different?
While many doctors tend to shame you if you have put on a little weight or abusing a substance, the doctors at Integrative Health Centers strive to be different. We want to help you. So, we don’t ask, “How could you do this to yourself?” Instead, we ask, “What happened, and how can we help you?” The difference between the questions isn’t a big one. However, we believe that by treating you with care and respect, you will feel different, and be a more critical part of your treatment. What’s more, we listen to your answer and create a treatment plan that is as unique as the person who needs it.

- Comprehensive addiction services
