Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

Primary care is general whole-body medical care administered by one main care provider. The Women's Center offers not only obstetrics, gynecology, and aesthetics, but also general primary care for your convenience. By having Dr. Bendell at The Women's Center as your primary care doctor, you can get nearly all the head-to-toe medical care you need, under one roof. 

Dr. Bendell believes in a holistic primary care model, which means he treats the whole patient rather than simply addressing problems as they arise. Holistic primary care means that you have a doctor who looks after your body, mind, and spirit to help you enjoy peak overall health and wellness. 

What primary care services are available?

Primary care services at The Women's Center include:

  • General health screening (annual physicals)
  • Blood pressure monitoring and management
  • Cholesterol monitoring and management
  • Diabetes monitoring and management
  • Weight-loss support
  • Depression, anxiety, and stress support and treatment
  • Botox treatment for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and women’s health issues

Because The Women's Center specializes in multiple areas, the practice can handle nearly all your health and wellness needs. But, in the event that you have a problem Dr. Bendell can't help with, he maintains a list of trusted physicians who can provide specialized care.

How often should I have primary care exams?

It depends on your particular needs. Dr. Bendell treats every patient as an individual, so no two care plans are ever exactly alike. Most healthy patients need an annual physical checkup, but if you have any ongoing health problems like diabetes, high cholesterol, or high blood pressure, Dr. Bendell might recommend checkups more often. Depending on your situation, he might recommend separate exams for women’s health needs and general wellness, as well as mental health.

Of course, if you experience new health problems, it’s important to see Dr. Bendell as soon as possible. Catching problems in their earliest form is one of the best ways to be proactive about your long-term wellness. 

As a small, independent private practice, The Women’s Center fosters an environment where patients can truly feel comfortable for primary care needs of all types. Use the online booking tool or call The Women’s Center to schedule your appointment for primary care today.
