Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

Primary care is one of the most important disciplines in medicine. You can benefit from primary care at any age. In fact, the earlier in life you get started on primary care, the better. 

Your primary care physician is your main medical contact. Any time you have unusual symptoms or questions about your health, you can call your primary care physician. 

Primary care physicians like Dr. Tages-Cordova have extensive knowledge about an array of health concerns since they don’t focus solely on one organ or system.

At Ohealth by Dr. T, Dr. Tages-Cordova takes a holistic approach to primary care. She aims to improve your physical, mental, and spiritual health simultaneously and gives you the knowledge to maintain them in the long term. 

Throughout your interactions, she gets to know you, your family, your body, and your medical history. With this knowledge, she can provide effective care without the complications of you getting to know a new doctor.

How can I improve my primary care experience?

There are a few things you can do to optimize your health by way of primary care participation. At Ohealth by Dr. T, Dr. Tages-Cordova suggests that you optimize your health by:

  • Detailing your family’s and your own medical history
  • Attending regular physical exams and check-ups
  • Keeping up on your vaccinations
  • Keeping up on treatments for chronic conditions
  • Getting screenings and lab work when necessary

If you attend regular visits to keep up on your primary care, Dr. Tages-Cordova can better diagnose illnesses early and start treatment as soon as possible.

How can I care for myself between primary care appointments?

Even if you attend your physical exams and other primary care appointments religiously, you must take steps to care for your wellness at home.
