Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

Primary care is a focus of medicine that addresses your general health care needs, even when you’re not sick. As a primary care physician, Dr. Marwaha and the medical team provide comprehensive primary care services including:

  • Sick visits
  • Routine checkups
  • Immunizations
  • Women’s wellness exams
  • Chronic disease management
  • Preventive health screenings

Dr. Marwaha and the Naperville Internist staff provide consultations in the office, through their telemedicine platform, and on an inpatient basis in the hospital. The team also makes house calls when you’re unable to travel to the office.

What can I expect during my initial primary care visit?

During your initial primary care visit, Dr. Marwaha and the team spend time reviewing your personal and family medical history. They also evaluate your current health and can discuss any symptoms you’re experiencing. 

If you have questions or concerns about your health, your primary care visit is an ideal time to talk about them with your provider.

If you have an existing condition or risk factors for chronic disease, Dr. Marwaha and the providers may request diagnostic testing or preventive screenings to evaluate your health. They screen for early warning signs of different types of cancer, including skin cancer; diabetes; heart conditions; and other serious illnesses. 

The medical team offers annual wellness visits for women. The team customizes routine visits and provides on-site Pap smears and birth control counseling services. The Naperville Internist providers also offer medically supervised weight loss services and nutritional counseling for both men and women.

If you need updates to your immunizations, Dr. Marwaha and the providers offer a variety of vaccinations on site, including the seasonal flu shot.

How does home care work?

After you and Dr. Marwaha discuss your primary care needs, you can arrange home care visits as part of your healthcare plan. Home care offers patients a variety of services; some of the most common are:

  • Monitoring your diet to ensure you’re eating healthy
  • Measuring vitals like blood pressure and heart rate
  • Providing wound care like debridement and changing bandages
  • Delivering medications, injections, and IV therapy
  • Offering education on proper care and preventive health

Many of the same expert primary care services from Naperville Internist are available in the comfort of your home. You can quickly receive necessary, skilled medical services without coming into the practice.
