Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

A primary care physician like Dr. Haque is who you see for all of your everyday health concerns. The office is your portal to health care, providing you with everything you need to stay well and take care of any medical problems you have. If you have a condition that requires specialist care, Dr. Haque can refer you to a doctor with expertise in that area.

One thing primary care doesn’t do is handle a medical emergency, for which you need to call 911 or go to the emergency room at a hospital. 

How does primary care help me stay well?

One of the leading roles of primary care is to prevent you from getting sick in the first place. Dr. Haque provides a comprehensive range of preventive medicine services, including:

  • Cholesterol checks
  • EKG tests
  • Spirometry testing
  • Blood sugar monitoring
  • Blood pressure measurement
  • Annual physicals
  • Well-woman exams
  • Pap smears
  • Immunizations
  • Cancer screening
  • Sexually transmitted disease testing
  • Medication reviews

Dr. Haque also provides advice, support, and information to help you lead a healthier life. For instance, he can help with weight loss and nutrition, exercise, and managing stress.

What kinds of health problems can primary care treat?

Primary care services treat all common illnesses and injuries that might affect you, including:

  • Fever
  • Colds and flu
  • Stomach upsets
  • Sprains and strains
  • Back pain
  • Skin problems
  • Varicose veins
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Wounds

Dr. Haque has specialist expertise in wound care and management, including the care of postsurgical wounds, bedsores, and leg ulcers. 

Can primary care help with chronic health problems?

Primary care plays a key role in helping you manage chronic health problems.

You might be seeing a specialist about a specific health condition, for example, a cardiologist if you have heart problems. In between visits to the specialist, Dr. Haque can monitor your general health, deal with any everyday problems, and provide you with invaluable support.

He can also pick up on any signs that your condition is worsening or you have complications that require your specialist’s attention. Some of the many chronic health problems Dr. Haque helps patients manage include:

  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis
  • Thyroid disease
  • Asthma
  • Chronic pain
  • Eczema
  • Fibromyalgia
  • High blood pressure
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Mental health disorders

If you have a problem like diabetes, Dr. Haque helps you monitor your blood glucose levels and does regular checkups for signs of complications.

Likewise, if you have high cholesterol or high blood pressure (hypertension), Dr. Haque performs regular checks to see if your readings are coming down. He can also help you with making lifestyle changes that help manage your blood sugar, cholesterol levels, and blood pressure.

Dr. Haque also provides hormonal therapy that can benefit women who are struggling with the symptoms of menopause. Older patients benefit from services that help keep them healthy and active as they age.
