Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

Primary care is your general health care provider. Your primary care doctor at United Physician Group takes care of your whole health rather than focusing on a single disease or body system.

The practice offers primary care to adults and children 4 and older. They diagnose and treat acute (short-term) and chronic (long-lasting) diseases and provide education and support that helps prevent ill health.

United Physician Group also has on-site lab services for convenient and fast test results.

Who provides my family’s primary care?

United Physician Group has doctors, physician assistants (PAs), and nurse practitioners. Some are specialists in internal medicine (internists). They provide adult primary care services, managing general adult health conditions and more complicated medical problems.

  • Cardiovascular screenings
  • Health education

  • Vaccinations (immunizations)

  • Annual physical exams
  • Medicare annual wellness visits

What other services does primary care provide?

Each primary care practice has its own specialties. Services available at United Physician Group include:

Chronic disease management

Long-term diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure (hypertension), allergies and asthma, and arthritis (joint pain) require ongoing monitoring and care.

Women’s health 

Women’s health covers gynecological problems like painful periods (dysmenorrhea), menopause symptoms, and conditions ranging from uterine fibroids (growths in the womb) to ovarian cysts (fluid-filled sacs on the ovaries). Preventive care includes breast exams and Pap smears to identify early signs of cancer.

United Physician Group also offers men’s health exams.

Pain management

Spinal disorders, joint problems, and fibromyalgia are just some of the chronic (long-term) causes of pain that require expert management. United Physician Group’s pain management experts use advanced treatments like steroid injections, nerve blocks, radiofrequency ablation, and spinal cord stimulation to ease severe or incurable pain.

Suboxone® treatment

Suboxone is a medication that eases the withdrawal process in people with opioid abuse disorder and addiction.

Workers’ compensation

You might benefit from workers’ comp if you suffer an injury at your workplace. To make a claim, you need to see a certified workers’ comp physician, like the United Physician Group doctors.

DOT physicals

US Department of Transportation (DOT) physicals are exams you must pass before getting a commercial driver’s license (CDL). You must have a CDL if you drive for your job.
