Well Care Primary Care Services
At Well Care Services, we believe that the separation of physical and psychiatric healthcare and treatment cannot always meet people’s needs, and our facility is designed to provide patients with that link under one roof. While traditional primary physicians play unique role in addressing a patient’s physical needs, we recognize the importance of integrating mental health services into primary care. Our whole-person approach is based on a unified treatment plan aimed at treating an individual’s mental and physical issues.
The Whole-Person Approach
While traditional primary care physicians play a unique role in addressing a patient’s physical needs, we recognize the importance of integrating mental health services into primary care. Mental health is often measured by the performance of mental function, fulfilling relationships with other people, and the ability to adapt, change and cope with adversity. We work to incorporate the social, emotional and behavioral aspects of an individual’s life and expand our services from treatment to health promotion and early intervention. This integration promotes optimal social and emotional development, and our providers assume greater responsibilities for the coordination of care of our patients and play a critical role in the screening and ongoing management of a patient’s emotional and behavioral problems.
In collaboration with our mental health services, our primary care services include preventive care, general medical care, diagnosis and treatment of illnesses, and ongoing care for more serious and chronic conditions like diabetes, or high blood pressure. Primary care physicians provide medication monitoring, drug prescriptions, physical evaluations and oversee the total care of their patients.
