Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

Primary care serves as your first contact for medical care and services. When you’re sick or not feeling quite like your usual self, your primary care provider evaluates, diagnoses, and treats your health issue. In addition to managing illnesses, primary care also focuses on health promotion, disease prevention, and patient education. 

Though primary care serves as your first point of contact when seeking medical care, you may find it hard to get an appointment or make a connection with a provider when they spend less than 20 minutes with you. 

Nightwater Medical Center is a private, high-end, concierge medicine, and primary care practice that provides personalized, patient-centered care. Unlike other primary care practices, Nightwater Medical Center schedules fewer appointments each day, which means shorter wait times and longer consultations that allow the time needed for you to develop a strong patient-provider relationship. 

What are primary care services?

Nightwater Medical Center is a full-service primary care practice and offers many services to meet your health and wellness needs. Some of the primary care services include:

  • Physical exams

When you participate in the concierge medicine primary care program at Nightwater Medical Center, you also have after-hours access to your primary care provider through the on-call service.
