Why Everyone Needs a Primary Care Provider

Primary care providers focus on your everyday health needs and working with one offers many benefits for your health now and in the future.

John Moran, MD, and the experienced medical team at More MD offers comprehensive primary care services for teens and adults. This means they can address a wide variety of acute ailments that affect your quality of life, including colds, flu and allergies, but their primary care services go beyond that.

What to know about primary care providers

A primary care provider has extensive training in all aspects of health, including your current health and your long-term health. This type of physician is who you call when you’re not feeling well or if you have questions about your health.

Primary care providers also work with you in the long term to prevent chronic diseases by providing annual medical exams, preventive screenings, and resources to help you live a healthy life.

If you already have a medical condition, a primary care provider can determine what treatments and lifestyle changes you need to keep it well-managed. They offer regular check-ups to ensure your treatment is working well and your body is functioning optimally.

Some chronic health conditions our team at More MD treat include:

Our primary care providers can also diagnose unexplained symptoms like chest pain that may be a warning sign of heart disease or other chronic medical condition.

Benefits of a primary health provider

Establishing a relationship with our primary care provider is ideal for everyone because you have a first line of defense against any type of medical condition.

When you’re not feeling well or have unusual symptoms that need a diagnosis, your primary care provider already knows your medical history and other factors that influence your health. This can save you time and ensure you get the treatment you need as soon as you need it.

Concerning your long-term health, your primary care provider can identify early signs of chronic illness through routine screenings and other preventive health care services. Treatment for many diseases is often most effective in the earliest stages. 

Not only can you avoid serious health complications with preventive care, but your primary health provider can also help you save both time and money.

Building a partnership with your primary health provider

Our medical team values the long-term relationships we build with individual patients, getting to know their needs and helping them live a better life. We also believe in the many benefits that a long-term relationship offers to you as a patient.

Your primary care provider can not only treat a wide variety of health issues as they come up, but we can also recommend specific ways you can improve your health on an everyday basis. The on-site lab allows us to process diagnostic testing results for urine testing and blood testing quickly, so you can get an accurate diagnosis without a long wait.

More MD offers an on-site weight management clinic, wound care services, and vision exams, so you can address many facets of your health under one roof. For women, we also provide well woman exams, pap smears, and routine breast exams to address the unique health needs of older teen and adult women.
