What is primary family care?

The central focus of primary care is to create a “health home” where you receive all of the screenings, preventive health care, and diagnostic and treatment services you need to reach and maintain optimal health.

Primary family care includes services for adults and children from the age of birth through 21. A.L.M.S Community Health Center offers the full scope of primary care needs for every member of your family, including geriatric care for aging loved ones.

Why choose primary family care?

You have options when it comes to sourcing your health care, and having choices is important. One reason so many families choose to entrust A.L.M.S Community Health Center with their primary care is the opportunity to cover the basic health needs of the entire family through the same practice.

This allows parents to not only look after their own health needs, but also to develop a relationship with the practitioners who deliver pediatric care. Your kids can benefit from coming in with you for your routine annual exams and learning what to expect during their own visits.

Record keeping and billing is also simplified when you choose primary family care. Scheduling is easier because you can set up visits for your entire family on the same day, cutting down on driving across town and juggling multiple appointments.

What health services are available through primary family care?

The practitioners at A.L.M.S Community Health Center offer a wide range of health services under the umbrella of primary family care. Some of the available services include:

  • Routine annual exams and physicals
  • Nutrition counseling and weight-loss support
  • Immunizations for children and adults
  • Pediatric and adolescent care
  • Basic women’s health care
  • Chronic illness management
  • Coordination of specialized care

Over time, your primary family care visits also build a comprehensive personal health record, which is a valuable resource to track changes and guide your care if an acute or chronic medical need arises.

How can I prepare for a primary family care visit?

A bit of preparation can make your visits more rewarding. Always come in with a list of any medications or supplements you’re taking. Be prepared to share the details of your personal and family health history, including changes since your last visit.

If you have questions or concerns, consider writing them down in advance of your visit. It’s easy to overlook something once your exam is underway, so having a written reminder is helpful.

When you bring your child in, help them think of questions to ask. This teaches children how to make the most of their annual exams and gives them a sense of agency over their own health needs.

When you’re ready to book your primary family care visit, call the office to check appointment availability. You can also book online, which takes just moments to complete.
