Primary Care Q & A

Why do I need a primary care doctor?

Even if you never get sick and feel like you’re generally healthy, you still need to see your primary care physician regularly. Your dedicated physician is responsible for helping you maintain good health and intervening if any of your lab or exam results show abnormalities. Having a primary care doctor is important to:

  • Prevent disease or chronic illness
  • Manage chronic conditions
  • Make changes to your medications
  • Help refer you to the right type of specialist
  • Maintain all of your medical records under one roof

Building a relationship with a primary care physician is also important so you have someone to call if you ever become sick or injured. This way, you have a dedicated doctor, who already knows your medical history, to evaluate you.

What happens during a primary care appointment?

Dr. Zikria, who’s a board-certified physician, has a reputation for getting to know each of his patients personally. He spends time going over your previous medical history and family health history, in addition to learning about any concerns you may have. Depending on your age and current health, your routine physical or well-woman exam may include:

  • STD screening
  • Prostate exam (for men)
  • Blood testing or a urinalysis
  • Blood pressure and heart rate check
  • Body mass index (BMI) calculation
  • Pelvic exam or Pap smear (for women)

Because Dr. Zikria specializes in infertility and family planning, he can also help you in those areas, too. He can diagnose the cause of infertility, treat infertility issues, or even prescribe birth control.

How often do I need to see my primary care doctor?

As long as you’re generally healthy, Dr. Zikria typically wants to evaluate you once a year. But if you have a chronic health issue, such as diabetes or high blood pressure, Dr. Zikria could have you come into the office two or more times annually to ensure your management plan is working. You may also need to come to the primary care office of Gul A. Zikria, MD, outside of routine visits if you:

  • Are sick or injured
  • Are struggling with infertility
  • Want to become pregnant
  • Recently found out that you’re pregnant

With state-of-the-art technology available at the clinic, Dr. Zikria can diagnose and treat many types of health issues for men and women, all under one roof.
