What is primary care?

Primary care is an internal medicine subspecialty that provides all your basic medical needs, including:

  • Disease prevention and screenings
  • Injury care
  • Diagnosis and treatment of illnesses
  • Counseling
  • Coordination between specialists

It’s crucial to establish primary care, even if you feel healthy. Regular visits to LiveMed can alert you early on and provide peace of mind.

What services does primary care provide?

At LiveMed, the team offers various primary care services, including:

Behavioral health

Behavioral problems, like anxiety disorders and depression, can sap your energy and keep you from activities you love. The team at LiveMed regularly works with adults to address these and other problems using safe and effective means.

Chronic disease management

Chronic disease management provides high-quality care for incurable illnesses, such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure (hypertension), diabetes, and thyroid disease. Healthy lifestyle changes and regular checkups at LiveMed can reduce the risk of complications and improve your quality of life. 

Addiction medicine

Many Americans struggle with substances like alcohol and tobacco. Tobacco cessation or alcohol counseling can help you stay on track. A combination of counseling, healthy lifestyle changes, and prescription medication may reduce cravings and help you achieve your health and wellness goals.


Immunizations teach your immune system to identify viruses and bacteria. Getting vaccinated won’t keep you from getting sick, but it can significantly reduce the risk of potentially serious side effects, like hospitalization.

Sex-specific screenings

Sex-specific screenings, like Pap smears and prostate exams, try to catch problems like cervical cancer and prostate cancer when they respond best to treatment. If your test results come back positive, the team can help you determine what steps to take next.

What should I bring to a primary care visit?

The team at LiveMed recommends bringing the following information to your primary care visit:

  • Health insurance card
  • Names of the medications or supplements you take
  • Results from any relevant or recent lab tests
  • Names and contact information of doctors or specialists you’ve recently seen

On the day of your visit, try to arrive 15 minutes beforehand, so you have time to fill out the new patient paperwork.

How much does primary care cost?

At LiveMed, the team tries to make primary care as affordable as possible. Initial consultations cost $79.99, and follow-ups cost $49.00 per visit.
