What Is Primary Care?

What is Primary Care?

Primary Care Providers act as a patient’s first point of entry into the healthcare system and as the continuing focal point for all needed healthcare services. Primary care practices provide patients with ready access to their own personal healthcare provider, or to an established back-up provider when their primary physician is not available.

Primary care practices provide health promotion, disease prevention, health maintenance, counseling, patient education, diagnosis, and treatment of acute and chronic illnesses in a variety of health care settings.

Before opening the doors of our facility, we decided to look at Maryland primary care services we looked at what was lacking in terms of community healthcare needs, and how Health Releaf could be different. One of our focus was to try to eliminate the hassle of referring and sending patients to multiple areas/locations for treatment. With the realization that it would require our providers to be knowledgeable and specialized in these services, we were determined to do whatever it took, however long it took, to accomplish just that. Our passion for nursing and commitment to helping others made the process quite simple.
