What is primary care?

Primary care addresses your individual physical, mental, and emotional health needs long-term.

The primary care team at Valley Natural Health focuses on both preventive care services and diagnostic testing and treatment services for acute and chronic health conditions.

The team takes a patient-centered approach to care and works together to find the root cause of illness, instead of just treating your symptoms. They use traditional medical treatments in combination with holistic and alternative therapies to treat a wide range of medical issues.

What primary care services are available?

Valley Natural Health offers primary care services for children and adults in a comfortable, welcoming environment.

Available primary care services include:

  • Annual physicals
  • Diagnostic blood work
  • Sick visits
  • Preventive health screenings
  • Chronic disease management

Patient education and disease prevention resources are also an important part of primary care. Additionally, the team offers psychotherapy services for couples, individuals, and families to address your mental and emotional health needs.

What can I expect during my initial primary care consultation?

At your initial primary care consultation, the Valley Natural Health team spends time reviewing your personal and family medical histories and your existing health. You can also expect to discuss your lifestyle and diet.

During a physical exam, the team checks your blood pressure, takes your height and weight, and assesses your body for signs of illness. They may also request blood work and other diagnostic testing to evaluate your cholesterol levels and hormone levels.

If you’re having a health issue, the team discusses your options for treatment. They focus on identifying the underlying cause of your issues, so they can treat it properly. A wide range of additional and alternative treatments are available for cardiovascular diseases, hypothyroidism, and other medical conditions.

The team also provides resources that lower your risk for chronic diseases and helps you make lifestyle and diet changes that support your long-term health. They can request routine screenings for certain diseases to identify them in their earliest stages when treatment is typically most effective.
