Primary Care Services Q & A

What is primary care?

Primary care is your first stop in the medical system. It promotes the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of illnesses. At Silvergate Medical Center and Medical Spa, Dr. Hegyi provides primary care services to adult men and women who want to make their health and wellness a priority.

A thorough review of your medical history, detailed physical examination, and laboratory testing are not only used to diagnose existing problems but also help to identify illnesses to which you might be predisposed.

If you choose Silvergate Medical Center and Medical Spa as your primary care practice, you can book an appointment for any health-related issue that arises. You can also attend yearly check-up appointments to monitor your health and become more familiar with your body. 

What are primary care services?

At Silvergate Medical Center and Medical Spa, Dr. Hegyi provides many primary care services to diagnose illnesses, treat illnesses or injuries, and prevent others from occurring. She might recommend any of the following primary care services during your visits:

  • Physical exams
  • Screenings
  • Chronic illness management
  • Treatment for acute illnesses and injuries

You can book visits to address specific symptoms, illnesses, and injuries or as part of your preventive care. Dr. Hegyi encourages you to attend regular physical exams even if you don’t feel sick, so she can identify signs of illness early when they’re at their most treatable.

If your treatment requires more specialized care, Dr. Hegyi can refer you to a skilled specialist you can trust. 

Why is it important to find a primary care provider?

Finding a primary care provider whom you trust can transform your relationship with your health and with the medical world. Whenever you experience new symptoms or changes in your body, even if they seem insignificant, you can discuss them with your primary care provider and get the answers you need.

Over time, primary care providers become increasingly familiar with your lifestyle, medical history, habits, and personal preferences. In some cases, they might even notice changes before you do. 

Your primary care provider’s familiarity with you can also improve the treatments you receive. Since they know you and your body, they can provide customized treatments for any condition affecting you. They can also help you make changes to your lifestyle or routine to promote wellness and prevent future illnesses and injuries.
