Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

Primary care is your first step into the health care system. Your primary care provider is your main point of contact and the specialist you see most often. They have extensive training in a wide range of medical specialties to ensure every patient receives comprehensive, well-rounded care.

How can primary care benefit me?

As the cornerstone of your health journey, primary care can benefit you in several ways, including:


Your primary care provider at Primary Care of Venice can help you stay healthy. Vaccinations, routine physical exams, and positive lifestyle changes are simple steps you can take to prevent acute (short-term) illnesses and chronic (long-term) diseases.

Early intervention

Regular checkups with your primary care provider can detect health problems early when they’re most treatable. 

Continuity of care

As your central point of care, your provider can help manage your overall health and coordinate specialist referrals when necessary.

Chronic disease management

Primary Care of Venice provides comprehensive care for many chronic diseases, including diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease.

Cost-effective care

Primary care can help reduce your long-term medical expenses by preventing costly hospitalizations and emergency visits.

How does lifestyle contribute to primary care?

The experienced physicians at Primary Care of Venice strive to keep you healthy throughout life. While medication can help treat acute illnesses and manage chronic conditions, maintaining a healthy lifestyle is essential to reduce your risk of obesity, coronary artery disease (CAD), and other chronic conditions. 

Lifestyle changes your primary care provider may recommend to protect and improve your health include:

  • Quitting smoking
  • Losing weight
  • Following a heart-healthy diet
  • Monitoring your blood sugar
  • Limiting your alcohol consumption
  • Exercising regularly

Depending on your unique needs, your doctor may pair lifestyle modifications with medication, insulin, or surgical procedures like angioplasty or bypass surgery.
