What are primary care services?

Primary care serves as the first point of contact for all your health needs. CAHEP acts as your medical home, maintaining your basic care and coordinating care from specialists.

How do I benefit from having a primary care provider?

A primary care provider is familiar with your medical history. They keep track of your records for acute and annual visits, so the practice knows what is normal for you. They can recognize when symptoms potentially signal an underlying health issue or changes in a chronic condition.

CAHEP is a place where you can feel relaxed sharing concerns about your health. You also benefit from the latest in technology and treatment methods. If you have symptoms or an illness that requires the attention of a specialist, CAHEP providers refer you to trusted providers in the community and coordinate your care appointments.

When should I see a primary care doctor?

A primary care doctor sees you for urgent and preventive issues. Of course, if you have a life-threatening emergency, like symptoms of a heart attack or a traumatic injury, head to your nearest emergency room.

The primary care team at CAHEP offers:

  • Annual checkups
  • Physical exams, including work, school, and sports physicals
  • Minor injuries like lacerations or suspected sprains
  • Screenings for problems like osteoporosis, colon cancer, and high cholesterol
  • Diagnosis and management of chronic illnesses, like diabetes and hypertension
  • Treatment for common illnesses, including COVID-19, the flu, and strep throat
