Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

Primary care is the setting in which you receive all preventive health services, as well as your source for acute care and chronic disease management. It’s an area of medical practice focused on not only meeting your current needs but anticipating future health needs. 

Dr. Raja takes a holistic approach to health care. This view acknowledges the interplay between your physical, social, emotional, and spiritual health. A growing body of scientific research supports the connections between all areas of human life, and holistic health practitioners expand their focus to address not just your body but also your mind and the connections you make in the world.  

What happens during primary care visits?

Your annual physical exams are the settings where you receive primary care services. These visits are an opportunity to check your vital signs and other health measures to look for signs of concern. 

During your physicals, Dr. Raja assesses your health and delivers the screenings appropriate for your age, sex, and specific health needs. He also takes the time to discuss ways you can enhance your health, empowering you to take control of your own health journey. 

These visits are your opportunity to ask questions or express concern about any health topics of interest to you. You can learn more about how to improve your diet, whether to incorporate supplements into your nutrition plan, or whether you are getting enough high-quality sleep. 

Virtually nothing is off-limits, so feel free to broach subjects ranging from sexual health to substance abuse, mediation to weight loss. You can also get any necessary vaccines during your annual physical exams. 

As your primary care physician, Dr. Raja also provides customized chronic disease management services as well as treatment for acute illnesses and injuries. 

What if I need specialized care?

From time to time, you might need to work with a specialist to address certain health needs. If so, Dr. Raja can help you find the right practitioner for your needs and will coordinate care as you work with your extended health team. 

Maintaining a comprehensive personal health record is an essential part of great primary care. Dr. Raja ensures that your medical record reflects all treatments you receive, including services delivered through specialized care. 

To book a primary care visit with Dr. Raja, call the office to check appointment availability. Walk-in visits are also an option if you cannot wait for a routinely scheduled appointment, and online booking allows you to schedule from home at any time of day or night.
