Which conditions do primary care providers treat?

When it comes to diagnosing and treating medical conditions, primary care providers intervene on a case by case basis. Their main function is promoting health maintenance and preventive medicine through practices like diet and exercise while identifying common medical conditions, should they arise.

Depending on the severity of your condition, they may recommend specialists or provide targeted treatment for a variety of conditions, including:

  • Obesity
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Hypertension
  • Sleep apnea
  • Skin conditions
  • ADHD

Primary care providers also facilitate regular screenings for common health problems, such as diabetes. They assess the urgency of your condition and point you in the direction of the best provider for care, whether it’s best handled in the office or by another health care provider.

Why is primary care essential?

Primary care is an essential component of your health care because it helps you stave off medical issues before they arise and detect problems early — when they’re easiest to treat.

Primary care providers can substantially improve your quality of life by keeping you healthy and disease-free: adults in the United States who regularly visit a primary health care provider have 19% lower odds of premature death, compared with individuals who solely visit specialized medical care providers.
