Internal Medicine Q & A

What is primary care?

Dr. Dotson focuses on your ongoing health by preventing, diagnosing early, and managing common health conditions. She often treats common primary care conditions like aches and pains, cold and flu, and more.

Dr. Dotson also manages a wide variety of chronic diseases. Some of these diseases include diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, and high cholesterol. Each requires careful monitoring, and doing so helps ensure that your treatment plan is working as it should.

What are the benefits of primary care?

As a primary care physician, Dr. Dotson will typically see you more regularly than specialty doctors. This places her in a unique position to thoroughly understand your medical record. Dr. Dotson will also be more aware of your hereditary and lifestyle factors, allowing her to effectively treat and follow up with any chronic or recurring health conditions you may have.

Dr. Dotson has a broad field of expertise, which allows her to see an extensive range of patients. Some of her primary care responsibilities include:

  • Caring for most diseases, except very uncommon or unusual conditions
  • Offering counseling
  • Monitoring your health against your lifestyle goals

She can also educate you about how to prevent chronic diseases. For example, she might recommend limiting your sugar intake if you have prediabetes or increasing your physical activity if you’re at higher risk for heart disease.

Why might primary care be right for you?

Dr. Dotson is your home base for medical care. She specializes in caring for you as a whole person rather than seeing you as the sum of your symptoms.  

She initiates evaluations and can manage complex medical conditions that you might have, requiring you to need a specialist referral. If you do need specialized care, Dr. Dotson integrates your treatment with a specialist who coordinates any additional care you may need across the health system.

Dr. Dotson tailors individualized care to your specific medical history and concerns, taking the time to ensure your needs are met with compassion and understanding at her boutique practice. Call today or book an appointment online.
