"Primary Care One's PURPOSE is to give patients ACCESS to health care in the areas where they need it the most. The required labs and physical examination for each new patient is designed to uncover the most common chronic diseases, i.e. Diabetes, Hyperlipidemia, Hypertension, Thyroid disease, and Respiratory illness. By taking a proactive stance in recognizing chronic disease and managing it, we can help the patient achieve a healthier life. We believe, through our model, we can impact the health of Americans in a positive way and decrease the cost at the same time."
