What are the benefits of adult primary care?
Adult primary care can lower your health costs and improve treatment outcomes. At CN Internal Medicine, your adult primary care visits are based on a supportive partnership that focuses on your previous medical history and how it affects both your current and future health concerns. For instance, routine monitoring for chronic conditions like diabetes, heart disease, and hypertension (high blood pressure) can prevent long-term health consequences. Because your provider is familiar with your medical history, changes in your health status are often identified and treated early. Familiarity with your provider relieves stress when seeking care for acute (sudden) illnesses like the flu, a urinary tract infection, or an itchy rash. Your primary care provider is also a trusted source for referrals to cardiologists, surgeons, and other specialists when necessary. At CN Internal Medicine, adult primary care offers a familiar and welcoming home base for all your health care needs.
