Where can you go for a wide range of health problems, including a cough or cold, anxiety and depression, or to solve complex medical problems? The answer is your primary care provider! The nurse practitioners at Avante Medical Center are all trained as primary care providers and can work with you assessing and treating a wide range of afflictions. At AMC, we strive for a holistic approach to all visits, addressing the range of health issues you may be facing. This includes issues that include your physical, mental, or emotional health.
It can be challenging to manage chronic health concerns such as arthritis, diabetes, or lupus by yourself. When you visit a primary care provider, they will work with you to address your illness from a conventional medical approach and an integrative approach. This is your body; you only get one, and setting regular appointments will allow your provider to assist you in not just maintaining your chronic disease, but feeling better overall.
When it comes to health care concerns and needs, many people do not like talking to strangers. When you find a primary care provider you can trust, it will go a long way in having somebody on your side whom you can develop a trusting and comfortable relationship with. It begins by scheduling regular appointments with your nurse practitioner to establish this relationship over time. The Journal of Health Affairs reports that patients with a regular primary care provider achieve higher satisfaction levels than those without.
As you visit your primary care provider, a health history slowly begins to develop. Over time, your nurse practitioner will have a history that becomes very useful in treating any future sickness. As your primary care provider becomes familiar with you and you develop history together, they will be knowledgeable about your past and apply that to current treatments. Established health history can also be helpful in the early diagnosis of more severe conditions.
Research has continuously shown that individuals with a primary care provider whom they visit regularly will have fewer hospitalizations and visits to urgent care facilities or emergency rooms. One significant reason is that your primary care provider will often be able to detect early signs of various medical conditions, which they will treat before the situation escalates. When you wait too long to see a provider or ignore symptoms, it can lead you to the hospital, which can be emotionally overwhelming and a fiscal burden.
When you visit Avante Medical Center for the first time, you can expect your appointment to last from an hour to an hour and a half. Follow-up visits will be shorter, usually thirty minutes to an hour. To schedule an appointment with a nurse practitioner, please call (907) 931-7740.
