Education and Support
At Henry Ford, our primary care services are designed to keep you healthy, safe and informed on the latest health information. Your primary care physician is one of your top advocates for maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Primary care physicians provide preventive care, such as recommending vaccinations and other screening tests to maintain your health. They also treat illnesses and injuries, and can refer you to a specialist when needed. Your primary care physician can help you manage chronic diseases such as diabetes, or help you overcome a cold or flu. In addition, our physicians coordinate your medical care, including any medications, and make sure you see the proper doctors to manage your condition.
When do you need a primary care doctor?
Whether you get sick often, have a chronic condition or can’t remember the last time you even caught a cold, it is important to have a primary care physician.
Your primary care doctor will keep you healthy through routine physical examinations, immunizations and health education information. If you become ill or get injured in a non-emergency situation, your doctor is there to diagnose and treat your condition.
