Washington DC Primary Care

· Blog · No Comments

Many adults admittedly do not receive consistent medical care and only seek professional help on an acute basis.

Even patients that have an established primary care provider in Washington DC can become discouraged with scheduling difficulties, long wait times and short appointments.

Fortunately, your primary care experience can be much more efficient, effective and patient-focused.

Here’s what patients should expect from their primary care team and how Dr. Bruce Rashbaum, Mary Beth Alder and the entire Capital Medical Associates staff are different.

What Is Primary Care?

Primary care is a patient’s main source of regular medical care.

It includes health promotion, disease prevention, health maintenance, counseling, patient education, diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic conditions.

What to Expect From Your Primary Care Team?

A primary care team may be comprised of medical doctors, physician assistants and nurse practitioners that have a vested interest in the patient’s health and overall well-being.

Our providers are highly-qualified and board-certified in family, internal and adult medicine. They rank among the top medical professionals in Washington DC and strive for a high-rate of patient satisfaction.

They also ensure continuity of care for any concerns, whether they are preventative, acute, or chronic in nature and readily collaborate with specialists.

Additionally, focus is placed on personalized attention and treating the individual rather than symptoms.

How Is Our Practice Different?

Our goal is for patients to feel positive after leaving our practice. To start, making an appointment is simple and convenient via phone or online.

Once you arrive at the office, you won’t be faced with a crowded waiting room, as our medical team see far fewer patients than typical primary care providers.

As a result, your appointment will start early or on-schedule, and you’ll receive more one-on-one time with your provider to focus on your goals and concerns.

Furthermore, care is not limited to office visits, and patients are able to contact their provider directly by e-mail. Phone support is another way patients can experience all-access communication.
