Primary Care Q&A

What is primary care?

Primary care is an area of medicine that manages your total health needs. Primary care providers like Dr. Howard have years of education and training to diagnose, treat, and prevent diseases that affect any part of your body.

In addition to managing your health, primary care providers focus on prevention, offering disease screenings and lab testing to assess and monitor your health over time. 

Dr. Howard is an experienced physician who provides progressive primary care services at his hybrid practice, offering in-person and telehealth appointments and in-office lab testing and medication dispensing.

Why do I need primary care?

You need primary care because your health is important. Your primary care provider serves as your first point of contact whenever you have a health concern.
