Primary Care Specialists Treatments and Services
Your Appalachian Primary Care specialist focuses on your long-term health and well-being with a variety of services and treatments, including:
We do annual exams and provide counseling on disease prevention and wellness to help you stay healthy. Our preventive care includes health screenings, vaccinations and health risk assessments to find problems early and reduce your risk of disease.
Diagnosis of New Conditions
We’re your first call when you notice new or unusual symptoms. We do a thorough evaluation to find the causes and to confirm a diagnosis using imaging and other tests, when needed.
Complex Disease Management
With an internist, you receive ongoing, personalized care to treat chronic diseases, such as diabetes and heart disease. If you have more than one condition, we closely monitor your health and treatment plan. We help you manage your medications and adjust therapies as needed.
Care for Acute Injuries and Illnesses
We prescribe medications and therapies to treat acute (sudden, short-term) conditions and injuries such as flu, infections or back pain. For minor injuries such as burns and deep cuts, you can see us – rather than going to urgent care.
Your internist performs minor procedures, such as joint injections and skin biopsies, in the office. You receive care where it’s convenient for you, without the need to see a specialist.
Coordinated Care for Referrals
If you need more advanced care, your internist can refer you to the right specialist. At Appalachian Primary Care, you have access to exceptional care from experts in every specialty.
