Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

When people generally talk about going to the doctor, they’re usually referring to their primary care provider. Your primary care doctor is the first doctor you see, whether you have an acute condition and need treatment, or it’s time for your annual physical. In other words, your primary care provider is your first line of defense when it comes to your health.  

But Central Jersey Family Physicians wants to be much more than that. Rather than referring you to a separate doctor for men’s health, women’s health, or cosmetic needs, they’ve worked to offer a broad range of treatments and services at their office. 

Is primary care available for patients of all ages?

Absolutely. The American Board of Family Medicine board-certified doctors at Central Jersey Family Physicians specialize in pediatric, adult, and geriatric care. That means they can see every member of your family, from the newest infant to the most senior family member. 

It also means that Central Jersey Family Physicians builds a relationship with your family over the years. Your children get comfortable at their office, helping them build healthy habits that will last a lifetime. And you never have to worry about switching to a new, unfamiliar doctor later in life. Instead, you get a dedicated team that uses their ever-deepening understanding of your family’s health and preferences to serve you best. 

What should I expect from primary care?

The team at Central Jersey Family Physicians focuses on preventive care. This means their goal is to help you make lifestyle choices that support your health while offering the right screenings to catch any health issues that do arise in their earliest phases. This way, treatment can be most effective and least invasive. 

Of course, Central Jersey Family Physicians offers all the other treatments and services you expect from your doctor, like care for colds and the flu, diagnosis for health conditions, and treatment for injuries. They pair this acute and chronic care with preventive care. That way, you can get the treatment you need when issues do arise alongside the health support that prevents complications, helping you and your family lead your healthiest lives possible.
