Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

Primary care is a very general medical specialty that gives you easy access to a provider you can trust. If you choose Dr. Ramadan at Los Angeles Primary Care as your primary care provider, she becomes the first person you contact for all of your medical needs. She can treat you herself or coordinate your care with trusted specialists in your area.

In many cases, primary care also includes preventive care. By attending yearly physical exams with your primary care provider, you can strengthen your relationship, learn more about your health, and improve or maintain your health with lifestyle changes. Dr. Ramadan also offers disease screening, including cancer screenings and sexually transmitted disease (STD) screenings, to diagnose diseases in their early stages. 

Primary care also involves diagnostics, disease management, and medication management. As your primary care provider, Dr. Ramadan knows the details of your health and can personalize your care according to your unique needs that other providers might not yet know about. 

Which conditions can primary care treat?

At Los Angeles Primary Care, Dr. Ramadan can help you avoid costly specialist appointments that may involve weeks or months of waiting for a visit. She offers primary care services to address a wide range of mild and moderate conditions, including:

  • Pneumonia
  • Arthritis
  • Migraines
  • Gastrointestinal issues
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Asthma
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Acne
  • Rashes
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension/high blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Thyroid diseases (hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism)

If you don’t yet know what you have, Dr. Ramadan explores your symptoms and might offer blood tests or imaging tests to diagnose you accurately. She creates a treatment or management plan for your condition and follows up with you to make sure your treatment outcome is positive.

What happens during a typical primary care visit?

Each time you come in for a primary care visit, Dr. Ramadan takes your height, weight, blood pressure, and heart rate. She performs a basic physical exam after asking for information about your symptoms and general health.

After performing the exam, Dr. Ramadan may update your prescriptions or monitor your condition in some way. If you’re already in treatment, she might adjust your treatment plan to accommodate for new symptoms or developments. She can also update your immunizations if you need them. 

If an office visit isn’t possible or convenient for you, Dr. Ramadan offers many primary care services with telehealth visits. With high-quality HIPAA-compliant video and audio, she can perform a basic physical exam, adjust your prescriptions, and discuss your health with you.
