Why would I need primary care services if I am healthy?

Even if you’re in good health, primary care services benefit your long-term wellness. At Altimate Care and Services, LLC, you receive annual exams that ensure your body is operating as it should. 

During these exams, your provider may pick up early signs of a health problem with no outward symptoms, such as high blood pressure. They can order important screenings, such as cholesterol tests, mammograms, or colonoscopies, to check for underlying diseases. When caught early, treatment is usually more straightforward. 

Your provider can also ensure you’re up-to-date on all necessary vaccines, including those for shingles, flu, and COVID-19. 

Having a trusted primary care provider means you can count on someone when you need a specialized physical, such as for school or to obtain a commercial driver’s license.
