Primary Care

What is primary care? 

Primary care services include a wide array of health services that support optimal health. You might visit a primary care practice like HAPPI Health for:

  • Health promotion and disease prevention
  • Medication management
  • Specialist referrals 
  • Chronic disease evaluation and management

Primary care serves as the foundation for all your health care needs. For almost any medical condition or concern, your primary care provider is an important first contact. 

Even if you have a specialized health concern, such as cancer or severe osteoarthritis, your provider can refer you to a qualified specialist for further treatment.

If you do see other medical specialists for chronic conditions, HAPPI Health provides continuity of care. They coordinate communication between all of your providers so you get all the health support you need.

What conditions can be managed by a primary care provider?

HAPPI Health is proud to offer primary care services to your entire family. From caring for newborns to providing care for the elderly and all ages in between, the practice offers a wide variety of health support for patients.

Standard services offered include but aren’t limited to:

  • Well-child visits

  • Preventive vaccinations
  • Oral risk assessments and plans
  • Family planning

Do I really need a primary care provider?

Visiting a primary care doctor on a regular basis is key to long-term wellness. Adults in the United States who regularly visit a primary care provider have a 19% lower risk of premature death than people who only visit specialized providers or who see a doctor intermittently.

A primary care provider helps prevent serious medical issues and gives you the support you need to maximize your overall health and well-being. 

At HAPPI Health, the providers get to know you and your family. The practice uses an electronic record management system that tracks your health, including vitals such as weight and blood pressure, as well as major events such as surgeries or accidents, so the staff can spot a problem before it becomes a major complication.
