Spending time researching and selecting your primary care physician is time well spent. Once you establish an ongoing relationship with a primary care physician (PCP), that doctor will develop comprehensive knowledge of your unique family medical history, your specific ongoing symptoms and conditions, and your distinctive laboratory and diagnostic test results. In other words, your PCP will be aware of your entire medical context, which will guide your him/her to make the right decisions for you, based on your specific symptoms and history.
In Central Florida Total Health Care, we believe that knowing our patients is as important as knowing the complexities of their health, to achieve a healthier life for each one of them. A tailored health care is easier when you have a meaningful relationship with your provider and when you assume your partner role in the process. Therefore, we would like to invite you to meet Dr. Jose Lopez, our internal medicine specialist.
Primary care is the care provided by physicians specifically trained for and skilled in comprehensive first contact and continuing care for people with any undiagnosed sign, symptom, or health concern; not limited by problem origin (biological, behavioral, or social), organ system, or diagnosis. Everybody should have a PCP who is in charge of helping them navigate through any health problem and preventing future diseases.
Primary care includes:
- Health promotion
- Disease prevention
- Health maintenance
- Patient education
- Diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic illnesses
Dr. Lopez will be fundamental in providing coordination of care between our office and any specialty offices you may need to be referred to. A strong relationship with him will ensure you receive optimal care between all disciplines of medicine, including your pharmacy and any specialist you visit. Our role of advocacy and coordination of care, provides the assurance that your health and safety needs are being met with quality and in an efficient and effective way.
In Central Florida Total Health Care we can help you to find out if Dr. José López is part of your insurance network, that way he can help you accomplish quality care at a lower cost through the harmonization of all health care services you may need and your insurance coverage.
Choosing the right primary care physician for you and your family should be on the top of your priorities’ list!.
