Primary Care Q & A

Why is it important to have a primary care doctor?

As your primary care doctor, Dr. Owens is the first person you contact with any health concerns. He is your medical “home” to offer primary diagnosis and treatment for common conditions, such as the flu, urinary tract infections, or a sports injury.

If you have a more complex issue, Dr. Owens knows many specialists in the community who can help. He’ll coordinate your care with various specialists, too.

During regular yearly physical exams, Dr. Owens checks on your general health, keeps your immunizations current, and offers health screenings. If you have a chronic condition, such as high blood pressure or diabetes, Dr. Owens provides more frequent periodic management. He also keeps track of necessary screenings, such as mammograms and colonoscopies.

What types of issues fall under primary care?

Immediate and long-term care concerns are appropriate for your primary care provider to address. Urgent or acute issues that benefit from Dr. Owens’ care include:

  • Severe cold or flu symptoms
  • Fever
  • Skin rashes
  • Cuts and sprains
  • Stomach pain or digestive distress
  • Ear infection

Health issues that require long-term management with the expertise of Dr. Owens include:

  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Skin disorders
  • Migraines
  • Mood and mental health issues

Dr. Owens is a doctor who sits and listens to you. He gives you the attention and care you deserve, regardless of your health needs.

Should I see a primary care doctor even if I’m feeling well?

Even if you’re feeling healthy, an annual physical is a good idea. Many conditions, including high cholesterol and type 2 diabetes, have no outward symptoms until they reach a crisis point. Dr. Owens can identify issues early before they escalate.

Dr. Owens provides physical therapy, osteopathic manipulations, pharmaceutical care, and other treatments to keep you feeling healthy and strong.

Women benefit from yearly pelvic exams and clinical breast exams conveniently offered as part of a physical. A regular Pap smear is a crucial way to prevent cervical cancer.
