Primary Care Q&A
What is a primary care practice?
A primary care practice serves as your medical home base for all of your health care. At Prairie Garden Medical, the team of multidisciplinary medical specialists offers extensive health care services in one place.
The practice emphasizes accessible and consistent care throughout your entire life. They tailor medical care for each patient’s individual needs, which is why the practice serves a highly diverse patient roster.

Along with their primary care services, Prairie Garden Medical offers orthopedic care in the office.

So if you have arthritis, a meniscus tear, an ACL tear, or another musculoskeletal problem, you can get expert care in the office.
When should I see my primary care provider?
Prairie Garden Medical recommends that all patients book physicals once a year. An annual physical screens you for disease, identifies possible health problems, and helps you to prevent medical problems in the future.
If you’re having new health problems of any kind, come in for an appointment at your earliest convenience. Treating injuries and illnesses quickly is best because it lessens your downtime and gets you back to your regular routine.
If you have a highly specific health problem, for example, frequent chest pain or vision loss, your primary care providers can examine you, determine a diagnosis, and, if necessary, refer you to a specialist for further care. They work with specialists in many fields to give you the highest level of excellent care for every medical need.
Prairie Garden Medical treats you like family, always making sure to meet your needs while providing continuous medical support throughout your life. They encourage you to reach out with any and all medical concerns.
