What is primary care?

Primary care is the frontline of medicine, and your primary care provider is the first person you contact when you feel unwell or have any concerns about your health.

Primary care doesn’t just treat your illnesses; it’s also the place to go for preventive medicine such as:

  • Advice on healthy lifestyle
  • Screening programs
  • Immunizations
  • Regular health checkups

Your primary care providers at Coleman Primary Care can look after all your everyday health problems as well as providing a range of integrative wellness services. If they believe you need specialist treatment at any time, the team refers you to an appropriately qualified expert. They work in partnership with hospitals and specialist providers to ensure you always receive the care you need, whatever your problem might be.

What preventive services does primary care include?

  • Annual checkups 
  • Well-woman exams
  • Medical assessments and physicals
