Primary Care Q&A

Why is primary care important?

Your primary care provider is your main resource for general health and wellness, whether you’re getting your annual physical exam or you have the flu. Primary care providers screen for and diagnose common issues impacting your health.

Your annual physical is the time for you to learn about the state of your health. If you have chronic conditions, regular checkups are important to monitor your health. If you don’t have pre-existing conditions, your physical is important for preventive reasons. 

Murrieta Primary Care Clinic provides complete women’s health care and men’s health care services as well. 

Your general physical exam includes screenings that are appropriate for your gender and your age. Women may get Pap smears or breast exams, while men may need a prostate exam.

Murrieta Primary Care Clinic provides in-house lab services for cash-only patients. Whether you have chronic health issues or you’re facing an acute illness, the team is here to help.

What is chronic condition management?

A chronic health condition is one that lasts a long time. In some cases, getting a diagnosis for a chronic condition means you’ll have it for the rest of your life. 

Having a chronic condition often means that you’ll have to make lifestyle changes and find a disease management plan that keeps your condition under control. At Murrieta Primary Care Clinic, the team is highly trained in diagnosing and managing many common conditions, like:

  • Diabetes 
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Asthma
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Adrenal disease
  • Thyroid disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Heart disease
  • Menopause
  • Andropause
  • Erectile dysfunction

Many of these conditions can be overwhelming and difficult to manage on your own. But when you partner with Murrieta Primary Care Clinic, you’re not alone. 

Should I visit an urgent care for treatment?

Primary care is important to maintain your wellness throughout life. But sometimes, acute illness or injury requires prompt medical care. 

Murrieta Primary Care Clinic offers urgent care services for adults, teens, and children over the age of 5. The team is equipped to handle acute conditions that include:

  • Urinary tract infection (UTI)
  • Upper respiratory infection
  • Cough
  • Allergies

If you or a loved one is sick or injured, urgent care can get you the care you need quickly. For life-threatening emergencies like a heart attack or stroke, visit the nearest emergency room or call 911.
