Family Medicine

What does family medicine care include?

Family medicine care includes virtually all aspects of your health and wellness. Family medicine providers care for patients of every age, from babies to seniors. Care includes, but isn’t limited to:

  • Preventive care, including flu shots and pneumonia shots
  • Urgent care for sprains, cuts, flu, asthma, allergies, pneumonia, and more
  • Care for chronic conditions like Type 2 diabetes and hypertension
  • Weight loss support, including weight loss medication, if needed

If you experience new health problems, your Pikeville Urgent Care & Body Boutique care provider can do necessary tests like electrocardiograms (EKGs) to check your heart, spirometry to evaluate your lungs, and ultrasounds to check the inner organs. On-site blood testing is also available, making it extremely convenient for you to get the care you need, immediately.

If you’re having any type of testing, your Pikeville Urgent Care & Body Boutique care provider recommends any necessary preparation ahead of time. For example, for some blood testing, you may need to fast before the test, or you may need to drink extra water before an abdominal ultrasound.

How often should I have wellness exams?

Patients of all ages typically benefit from annual physicals, which are also called wellness exams. Your annual physical is a checkup that evaluates your whole-body health.

Once a year is typically a good interval for wellness exams because it allows your Pikeville Urgent Care & Body Boutique to compare the information from your wellness exam to your previous exams to look for changes, emerging problems, or areas of concern. Then, they can help you implement any necessary changes so you can maintain good health.

What if I need a specialist?

One of the advantages of seeing a family medicine provider like those at Pikeville Urgent Care & Body Boutique is that they can handle virtually all of your health care needs on-site, from exams to testing to diagnosis and treatment.

In some cases, though, you may need specialized care. For example, if your EKG reveals a past or in-progress heart attack, you may need to see a cardiologist right away. In cases like this, your Pikeville Urgent Care & Body Boutique care provider refers you to an experienced colleague who specializes in the type of care you need and then co-manages your care with the specialist.
