Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

A primary care provider is your first point of care for non-emergency health concerns. They have training in treating almost all diseases and illnesses apart from those that need specialist care. Primary care physicians, like Dr. Gressel, offer the following services:

  • Well visits and sick visits
  • Treatment and management of chronic conditions
  • Ongoing health monitoring
  • Counseling
  • Mental health support
  • Weight management support
  • Healthy lifestyle guidance
  • Specialist referrals
  • Testosterone replacement therapy

Dr. Gressel and her team offer bioidentical testosterone replacement therapy and medication for erectile dysfunction in men, to improve sexual function and help them gain confidence in the bedroom.

She also completes routine pap smears and counseling for her female patients in addition to family medicine services. She welcomes patients ages 12 and over to her practice. 

If you’re tired of seeing a different provider each time you need a doctor, try primary care and put your health needs first.

Why choose a primary care provider?

The principal benefit of primary care is the assurance of receiving consistent medical attention from the same person. Health problems are often personal, and you may feel awkward discussing them with a stranger. 

Choosing a primary care provider allows you to build a close, trusting doctor-patient relationship. It also means your doctor knows your health history and general health, meaning they’re better equipped to spot serious health issues quickly.

Dr. Gressel works with you to create lifestyle changes that support your health and well-being. And if you ever need specialist treatment, she collaborates with other medical teams to make sure your needs are taken care of. 

What are the different types of primary care providers?

Primary care covers several areas, and physicians can specialize in one or more after completing their medical studies. They include:

Internal medicine

Internal medicine doctors treat adults of all ages.

Geriatric medicine

Geriatricians treat people 65 and older, focusing primarily on the health concerns associated with aging.

Family medicine

A family medicine doctor treats patients of all ages, from child to senior.
