Family Primary Care
In a world of ever-increasing specialization, especially in the medical field, it’s hard to find that one doctor or practice that has a good handle on your overall health, helping you navigate your medical issues more efficiently. At Premier Healthcare, we offer such care to our patients. We offer a holistic approach, combined with conventional medicine, to assure a compassionate and honest road to wellness. Most other clinics focus on sickness care, while we at Premier Healthcare focus on prevention of illness.

Primary Care Q & A
Why is primary care essential?
Think of your primary care provider as an expert facilitator and monitor of your health. At Premier Healthcare, Roy and Amber are both nationally board-certified Family Nurse Practitioners, which means they have the knowledge required to provide care for all members of your family.
Rather than concentrating on a specific area, your provider has a clear understanding of your overall health and how the different parts work together as a whole. Specialists are trained to have tunnel vision and provide excellent care for only one aspect of your health, whereas a primary care provider has a clearer understanding of the overall picture and gathers valuable baseline information to help prevent future health problems.
What does a primary care provider offer?
Primary care providers offer two valuable services:
Through annual physicals, your primary care provider at Premier Healthcare keeps a watchful eye on your health and can spot any trends long before they turn into full-blown medical problems. During your annual physical, your provider checks you from head to toe, inside and out, and because of their history with you, they know where to concentrate their efforts.
Your primary care provider also handles your screening schedule, ensuring that you get the proper testing for your situation. For example, cancer screenings, such as mammograms and colonoscopies, can be arranged through your primary care provider.
The second aspect of an excellent primary care provider is their ability to ensure that you get the expert help you need. If you suffer from cardiovascular issues, for example, Amber and Roy make sure you get the specialized medical help you need and monitor your progress along the way to make sure they meet all of your health care needs.
Does primary care include lifestyle considerations?
Your primary care provider at Premier Healthcare pays close attention to your lifestyle and suggests ways you can improve your health. Your primary care provider often makes valuable lifestyle suggestions, such as:
Curbing alcohol use
Becoming more physically active
Guarding your sexual health
The providers at Premier Healthcare take your health seriously and work with you, and your family members, to make sure you lead happy, active, and healthy lives.

Family Medicine Q & A
What is family medicine?
The staff at Premier Healthcare focus on building long-term relationships with you and your entire family. You can rely on our providers’ experience and knowledge in offering care for people of all ages.
Roy and Amber take a whole-person approach to identify the cause of illness or disease and help you reach optimal health based on a treatment plan customized just for you.
You can expect comprehensive care for conditions like:
Colds and flu
High blood pressure
We offer diagnosis and treatment options based on your specific health needs. We also stress the importance of preventive health care and wellness for the entire family.
What is preventive health care?
In addition to treating current diseases and conditions, our providers offer resources and guidance to ensure you stay in good health. Preventive health care services may include: nutritional advice, exercise plans and information, and eliminating bad habits that can negatively influence your health.
Preventive care also involves routine physical exams and health screenings that give your provider the opportunity to identify early signs of disease or illness. Preventive care visits are also the ideal opportunity to update your immunizations and evaluate your lifestyle and diet choices, as well as your sexual and mental health.
What are the benefits of routine examinations?
Routine physical exams are a vital part of family medicine. During your appointment, you can discuss your questions or concerns with your provider. These discussions can give you the peace of mind that you are on the right track for continued good health.
Another benefit of family medicine includes working towards the goal of a long, healthy life with knowledgeable providers. Annual exams give your provider the opportunity to monitor any changes in your health each year and provide information to help them guide you to make positive lifestyle changes to maintain good health.
Both Roy and Amber can also refer you to specialists for additional treatment when necessary. They work closely with other providers and specialists in the area to ensure the highest quality, comprehensive health care.
