Primary Care Q&A

What is primary care? 

Primary care provides all basic medical needs, including prevention, evaluation, diagnosis, and management. 

As a full-service primary care practice, Triad Internal Medicine provides the following:

  • Chronic disease management
  • Education on disease prevention
  • Promotion of good health
  • Medication management
  • Referrals to specialists when needed

Triad Internal Medicine can be your first contact for almost every health concern, including urgent concerns like a high fever, minor fracture, or an arthritis flare-up.

Do I need a primary care provider? 

When you have a trusted primary care provider, you know who to turn to with a medical question or concern. If you need a physical for work, school, or to obtain a commercial driver’s license, your primary care provider can help. 


You know where to seek care when you develop acute symptoms like fever, unexplained rash, nausea, or vomiting. Triad Internal Medicine can also help if you have a complication with a chronic disease, like unusual blood sugar readings with diabetes. 

The providers maintain your entire medical history, so your treatment is prompt and appropriate. They know what medications you take and any specialists you see.

How does a primary care practice prevent disease?

Triad Internal Medicine maintains long-term relationships with its patients to provide prevention, wellness, and treatment for common illnesses and chronic conditions. 

The practice helps you maintain or improve health, guiding you to prevent disease. You should visit your primary care provider even when you’re feeling well, so the providers can run screenings and get a baseline measure of your health. This helps them detect changes indicating the development of disease and provide early treatment to safeguard your health. 

Preventive services offered through primary care include:

  • Annual physical exams
  • Women’s health services
  • STD testing
  • Weight loss evaluation and support
  • Management of screenings such as Pap smears, mammograms, and colonoscopies

Even if you have a chronic disease, you benefit from preventive care. Improving your diet, losing weight, quitting smoking, and becoming more physically active may help you reverse symptoms of conditions like hypertension and Type 2 diabetes.
