What is primary care?

What happens during primary care appointments?

During primary care visits to Thriverock Active Healthcare, Dr. Empey weighs you, assesses your body mass index (BMI), and checks your blood pressure and other vital signs. He reviews your medical history, symptoms, and lifestyle habits.

He also completes a physical exam to evaluate your overall health and wellness. Dr. Empey checks your eyes, ears, throat, breathing, heartbeat, reflexes, and more.

He might order DNA and telomere testing, lab tests, nasal or throat swabs, heart-function testing, or other diagnostic tests to detect or rule out potential medical concerns. 

If you need treatment, such as medically supervised weight loss, dietary supplements, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, hair restoration, osteopathic manipulation, or other holistic treatments, Dr. Empey tailors a plan to match your needs.

How often should I schedule primary care appointments?

Schedule primary care appointments yearly for preventive medical care or whenever you feel ill or develop new symptoms. Call Thriverock Active Healthcare if you’re interested in medically supervised weight loss, have concerns or questions about your well-being, or need a physical.
