Primary care centers, such as ours here at Hudson MD Group, offer treatments for a vast variety of acute and chronic medical conditions all under one roof. However, what makes us different is that we are not just a primary care practice—we are essentially a multispecialty group—and thus, we are also staffed with highly credentialed specialty care providers. This makes us all the more equipped to provide comprehensive care for a greater breadth of medical problems.
Let’s explore some common conditions and injuries we treat here at Hudson MD Group.
For minor injuries like sprains or strains, a primary care center is an excellent place to receive care. Our primary care physician can recommend different treatment modalities, order imaging studies, or give you a referral to a physical therapist, depending on the extent of your injury.
For minor burns or wounds that need debridement or a few stitches, respectively, our doctor can carry out the treatment in office in office, saving you a trip to a busy emergency room.
Infections are common and not all are severe enough to warrant a trip to the hospital. Some infections that can be treated at a primary care center include sinus infections, throat infections, urinary tract infections, and sexually transmitted infections. Your primary care provider will prescribe you antibiotics and may recommend that you come back for follow-up care.
A few cardiovascular conditions that our primary care physicians can treat include high blood pressure, heart murmurs, arrhythmias, and atrial fibrillation.
For patients suffering from complex heart problems or those that require specialized care, our primary care physicians work in tandem with our cardiologists to devise a comprehensive treatment plan to effectively manage these conditions. They gladly work closely with patients to guide them along the path to optimal cardiovascular health.
Foot and Ankle Conditions
Some conditions that we can treat include minor sports-related foot or ankle injuries (e.g., plantar fasciitis and stress fractures), bunions, heel spurs, gout, ingrown toenails, plantar fasciitis, and diabetic foot problems.
After a thorough assessment, if our primary care physician deems that your foot or ankle problem warrants specialized care, they will likely collaborate with one of our highly qualified podiatrists on staff to efficiently manage your condition.
