About Primary Care Providers

Finding a primary care provider is one of the most significant decisions a person can make. It is essential for patients to have a trusted provider they can turn to. At Clear Lake Primary Care, we are proud to be that provider. When patients have a general medical concern, such as a sore throat or an upper respiratory infection that won’t go away, our primary care physicians are here to provide prompt and compassionate medical attention.

What is a Primary Care Provider?

A Primary Care Provider, or PCP, is typically a family medicine or internal medicine physician. Internal medicine physicians see patients 16 years or older, while family medicine physicians see patients starting from 2 months old. A PCP can also be a nurse practitioner (NP) or physician assistant (PA). These physicians diagnose and treat illnesses as well as provide preventive medical care. A primary care doctor is your main point of contact for healthcare in non-emergency situations.

Our practice services include:
  • Annual physicals and well-patient visits
  • Flu shots and other immunizations
  • Chronic disease management
  • Urgent care appointments for acute, non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses
  • Preventative care counseling
  • Referring patients to a medical specialist when a condition requires more targeted treatment

Primary Care FAQ

The flu shot is available year-round. It is best to get vaccinated before the flu begins spreading in your community.
It takes about two weeks after vaccination for your antibodies to develop and protect against influenza.
Your primary care physician may recommend specific tests during an annual exam. These can include tests to measure blood pressure or cholesterol.
