Primary care is an important part of your overall health and wellness, and seeing your primary care provider regularly can ensure you stay healthy and active in your daily life.
So, what is primary care?
Primary care services include promoting and supporting your overall health, administering preventive care services, counseling and educating you on health-related issues, and diagnosing and treating illnesses. Your primary care provider is your go-to resource for day-to-day health. They can also help you identify health conditions you may not have been aware of and manage those conditions through ongoing care.
Iora Primary Care is a doctor’s office that provides relationship-based care designed specifically for adults on Medicare. In order to help you thrive in every aspect of your life, our healthcare team and providers are committed to a comprehensive approach to your health — working together to listen, support, and find the best treatment plan for you. Through coordinated care and flexible care options, your health is always our top priority.
