Serving Edgar County & Surrounding Communities

The primary care providers at Horizon Health offer high-quality healthcare for a wide range of conditions and treatments. Your primary care physician is the first person you call for most health complications. This is your provider – the one with whom you’ve built a relationship; someone who is familiar with your medical history and what’s important to you. Finding a primary care provider you can trust and feel comfortable with is important for maintaining your health and wellbeing.

At Horizon Health, our evaluation and treatment plans are designed to meet your general health needs. We also provide specialist referrals as needed. We are your partners in healthcare.

Importance of an Annual Checkup

Annual checkups are important for your overall health because they can prevent future issues and diagnose conditions in their early stages. Checkups with your primary care provider will give you the tools and knowledge to live a long and healthy life.

What to Expect

Your first visit to one of our clinics will consist of filling out paperwork, an evaluation from a nurse and your primary care provider, and suggestions on possible treatment options going forward. Prepare to bring a list of medications you are currently taking, as well as documents or other items you think you need to properly assess your health and wellness.

Primary care providers treat a wide variety of conditions. They will be your first call whenever you have a medical issue that does not qualify as an emergency or require specialty care.

Conditions treated include:

  • Diabetes
  • Allergies
  • Mental health conditions
  • Minor injuries
  • Infectious diseases
  • Lung disease
  • Heart disease
  • Kidney disorders
  • Joint and muscle pains
  • Fevers
  • Asthma
  • Aches and pains
  • Cold and flu
  • Ear infection

Some of these conditions may require additional care from a specialist. However, many specialty care providers require a medical referral before they will see you. Your primary care provider can provide preliminary care and provide you with a referral if more advanced care is needed.
