Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

As a primary care practice, JEE Healthcare is the first point of contact for all of your health needs. Primary care services include:

  • Diagnosis and treatment for everyday health problems
  • Evaluation of minor ailments
  • Management of chronic health conditions
  • Health checkups and routine physical exams
  • Health screening tests and exams
  • Immunizations
  • Weight loss programs
  • Healthy lifestyle recommendations

Primary care is health care that covers a comprehensive range of non-urgent medical services. 

If you come to JEE Healthcare with a complex case, Dr. Escobar can advise you and refer you to an appropriate physician or hospital. He can then coordinate care with that specialist to provide seamless treatment and medical support.

Do I need a primary care physician if I feel fine?

Dr. Escobar provides annual physicals, an important part of your preventive care. Preventive care aims to keep you healthy with immunizations, screenings, and support to mitigate risk factors for chronic disease.

When you feel good, it’s a great time to see the primary care practice, so Dr. Escobar can check all of your vital signs and how well everything is functioning. The visit also gives him a baseline for comparison when you need care in the future.

Your annual exam is essential for detecting early signs of many health conditions that may not yet show outward symptoms. When caught early, these conditions respond well to treatment. If they go untreated, you could develop serious complications.

What kinds of conditions does primary care treat?

Serious, immediate problems, like the signs of a heart attack or major injury, require attention at an emergency room. Otherwise, you can count on JEE Healthcare to handle most medical issues. Wide-ranging care includes sports injuries, back problems, colds, flu, stomach upsets, headaches, rashes, and fevers, just to name a few.

If you have a long-term health condition that requires management, JEE Healthcare can help. These include diagnoses of:

  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Diabetes
  • Chronic pain
  • Depression and other mood disorders
  • Eczema
  • Joint pain
  • Immune system disorders
  • Thyroid problems

Dr. Escobar offers telemedicine visits for some ailments, follow-up, and medication reviews.
