What is primary care?

Primary care is the first place you go when you have a health problem. The Umbrella HealthCare team offers comprehensive primary care that covers an extensive range of services, including diagnosing and treating both acute ailments and chronic conditions.

The only time you should go elsewhere for help is in an emergency, such as experiencing a heart attack or stroke symptoms or suffering a serious injury like a compound fracture (where the bones are protruding through your skin). In these cases, you should get to your nearest hospital emergency room or call 911.

Primary care services cover most conditions, but your provider can refer you if you require specialized care. For example, you might need to see an oncologist if you have cancer or a cardiologist if you have congestive heart failure.

What services are available in primary care?

Umbrella HealthCare offers primary care services that include:

Preventive medicine

Primary care providers offer many preventive medicine services that help you avoid disease or identify it early on when treatment is more effective.

Preventive medicine services available at Umbrella HealthCare include annual physicals, Pap smears, and other forms of cancer screening, immunizations, healthy living advice, and blood pressure checks.

Urgent care

Urgent care gives you fast access to treatment for illnesses like the flu, urinary tract infections (UTIs), headaches and migraines, abdominal pain, sinusitis, and many other acute conditions.

Urgent care can also treat injuries like sprains and strains, bleeding wounds, back pain, and minor burns and scalds.

Can my children use primary care services?

The Umbrella HealthCare team has the expertise and experience to diagnose and treat childhood health problems, and they offer comprehensive care to children 4 and over.

Your child can receive routine vaccinations, undergo hearing and vision screenings, and receive prompt care for acute illnesses and chronic diseases. If your provider has any concerns about a child, they refer you to a pediatrician (a specialist in children’s health) for further assessment.
