Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

Primary care enables you to access all of the routine health and wellness services you might require. 

You get everything you need from your primary care provider other than help with life-threatening injuries or illnesses that require emergency hospital treatment. You should call 911 or get to the hospital immediately in these situations.

Zziwa Adult Clinical Practice offers comprehensive adult primary care services. Iryne is an experienced internal medicine specialist who has extensive knowledge in acute conditions, chronic disease management, and geriatrics. She is also an expert in HIV medicine.

What services does primary care offer?

Some of the primary care services Zziwa Adult Clinical Practice offers include:

Urgent care

If you become sick with an urgent health problem like the flu, abdominal pain, diarrhea, vomiting, or a skin rash, urgent care offers fast access to diagnosis and treatment.

Chronic illness management

Chronic illness management provides ongoing care and support to help patients manage long-term health problems. Common conditions that require ongoing care include diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. Iryne also specializes in caring for older people with HIV.

Episodic care

Episodic care helps patients when they’re sick but have no primary care provider. Iryne also works with your primary care provider if you need a diagnosis and treatment for a specific complaint and you’re temporarily homebound.

Geriatric care

Older adults often have complex health needs and require regular medical checkups. They’re also more likely to take medications, often multiple kinds. Iryne’s experience in geriatric care ensures older people maintain good health and enjoy a better quality of life as they age.

Zziwa Adult Clinical Practice provides all primary care services to patients at their homes, including assisted-living facilities. In-home care is far more convenient than visiting your provider at their office and more cost-effective than using hospital emergency room services.
