What is primary care?

Primary care is an area of medical practice focused on delivering high-quality health services. A primary area of focus within primary care is preventive health, which strives to reduce your risk of developing chronic disease. 

 

When illness or injuries occur, you can also rely on your primary care practitioner for acute care services. Having a trusted physician to turn to when you’re feeling ill brings incredible peace of mind. That’s especially true for parents who are trying to soothe a sick child. 

 

Wellness is also a specialization within primary care. Great health is more than just the absence of disease. Learning how to balance your physical, emotional, mental, social, and spiritual needs is an essential part of living each day to the fullest. Dr. Jasarevic understands this holistic approach to health and wellness. 

Why see a doctor if I’m not sick?

Far too many people only seek medical care once they’re already sick, or after an injury leads to symptoms that can’t be ignored. This approach fails to take advantage of the benefits of preventive medicine.

 

Working with a primary care physician like Dr. Jasarevic allows you to build a trusting bond that will serve you well if and when an acute care need arises. Routine annual physicals also create a comprehensive personal medical record, which serves to track changes over time. This living document is an invaluable resource in guiding your health care over the years. 

 

Routine physicals ensure you have the vaccines needed to build a robust immune system. They’re also an opportunity for you to receive guidance on health and wellness topics. Dr. Jasarevic views her role as your partner in your health care journey and takes time for in-depth patient education during each visit.  

What kinds of services are available through primary care?

Routine annual physical exams are the foundation of great primary care. These visits can help you identify areas of concern before they reach the level of chronic disease. Dr. Jasarevic also offers women’s health and men’s health services to address issues specific to your reproductive health.

 

Acute care visits, also called sick visits, are among the services provided at Crescent Direct Primary Care. If you have an unexpected health issue, urgent care visits are also an option. Same-day scheduling is available for both acute care and urgent care. 

 

From time to time, children and adults are asked to complete specialized exams. These physical exams are required by some schools, camps, athletic organizations, and employers. Dr. Jasarevic can complete a wide range of specialized exams and provide the documentation you need to move forward. 

 

If you have questions about primary care or are ready to schedule your next visit, call the office to check appointment availability. Online booking is also an option and takes very little time to complete.
