The Definitive Guide to Primary Care Services by Your Trusted OB/GYN

The Definitive Guide to Primary Care Services by Your Trusted OB/GYN

Your primary care provider is the first person you call when you have a health concern. They know about you and your health and can make well-informed and personalized decisions about your care.

Can your OB/GYN serve as your primary care? OB/GYNs are doctors who specialize in women’s health, especially reproductive health. While not all OB/GYNs provide primary care services, our team of women’s health experts at Obstetricians & Gynecologists, PC, in Hastings and Grand Island, Nebraska, does.

Primary care vs. OB/GYN

Primary care is a segment of medicine that serves as your general health manager, taking care of you in health and sickness. They’re the first person you contact when you need medical advice, a physical exam, or concerning health symptoms.

Obstetricians and gynecologists, or OB/GYNs, are medical doctors who specialize in women’s health, managing their general health as well as their reproductive health. OB/GYN physicians receive comprehensive training so they can provide primary care services for women.

General primary care providers can also manage reproductive health, but they may not have the additional training and experience to get to the root of a woman’s health issue — for example, symptoms like pelvic pain have multiple causes.

Though trained to provide primary care, not all OB/GYNs offer a full-spectrum of primary care services like we do.

OB/GYN primary care services

At our practice, we provide primary care services that manage both your general health and your reproductive health. We offer these services because it allows us to really take care of you, treating your whole health.

Some of the primary care services we offer include:

We also provide services that women need, like birth control for family planning, prenatal care, and menopause management.

Continuity of care 

Your primary care provider is the doctor who knows you best. They understand your health history, making it easier for them to diagnose and treat health conditions.

Getting primary care services from your trusted OB/GYN means you get even more personalized care. We know many women suffer in silence because their primary care doctor fails to connect their symptoms to a gynecological condition like endometriosis, fibroids, or polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

Women have unique health needs that require attentive and informed medical care. Getting primary care services from your OB/GYN ensures you get the tests, diagnosis, and treatment that keep you well.
