Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

Primary care providers deliver all your routine health care needs. You visit when you’re sick, in pain, or need help managing a long-term condition.

The only thing primary care doesn’t do is treat medical emergencies, which require an immediate hospital visit.

Does primary care treat acute conditions?

Elahe Toulouie MD Inc. offers urgent care for acute conditions such as:

  • Colds and flu
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Diarrhea and vomiting
  • Severe sore throat or cough
  • Rashes and hives
  • Fevers
  • Dehydration
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Sprains and strains
  • Back injuries
  • Cuts, burns, and scalds

You can get same-day appointments for urgent care problems or book a telehealth consultation, where you talk to your provider using a secure internet video link. The practice specializes in adult internal medicine, so they only see patients 20 and over.

What other services does primary care provide?

Primary care services that Elahe Toulouie MD Inc. provides include:

Chronic disease management

Chronic diseases last for long periods — often years and sometimes a lifetime. They include conditions like:

  • Heart disease
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Diabetes
  • Thyroid disease
  • Cancer

Chronic disease management helps you maintain a healthy life despite these problems. You go for regular checkups and routine tests, and your provider works closely with your specialist if you have one.


Cancer screening

Most cancers reach an advanced stage before they start causing apparent symptoms. By this time, treatment is more challenging and less likely to succeed. Cancer screening identifies conditions like cervical, breast, and colorectal cancers when they first develop. That means you can get treatment quickly, increasing your chances of a successful outcome.


Geriatric care

Geriatric medicine focuses on helping people of advanced years manage their health and reducing the effects of common old age problems like osteoporosis (weakened, brittle bones), dementia, and cardiovascular disease.


Women’s health

Women’s health concerns include conditions like endometriosis and uterine fibroids. Many women have problems with painful, irregular, or heavy menstruation and, in mid-life, struggle with menopause symptoms.


Preventive medicine

Preventive medicine focuses on helping you lead a healthy lifestyle to reduce your risk of preventable diseases. It includes nutrition counseling, cholesterol checks, immunizations, blood sugar and blood pressure monitoring, smoking cessation, and medical weight loss.
