PRIMARY CARE

A primary care physician is a specialist in Family Medicine, Internal Medicine or Pediatrics who provides definitive care to the undifferentiated patient at the point of first contact, and takes continuing responsibility for providing the patient’s comprehensive care. This care may include chronic, preventive and acute care in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Such a physician must be specifically trained to provide comprehensive primary care services through residency or fellowship training in acute and chronic care settings.
Primary care physicians devote the majority of their practice to providing primary care services to a defined population of patients. The style of primary care practice is such that the personal primary care physician serves as the entry point for substantially all of the patient’s medical and health care needs – not limited by problem origin, organ system, or diagnosis. Primary care physicians are advocates for the patient in coordinating the use of the entire health care system to benefit the patient.

PREVENTIVE CARE

At Diligent Medical Care PC, we focus on preventive medicine and put into practice daily. We educate our patients on how they can participate in their own health care. Preventive medicine measures are taken to prevent illness or injury, rather than cure. The Preventive medicine helps the patient t reduce your risks as a patient and the cost of treatment.
