Our concierge medicine services are available in our clinic (office, surgery) conveniently located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, or from the comfort of your own home, hotel or office, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (including holidays).
Internal Medicine and Primary Care
We offer medical and preventive care for a wide range of conditions affecting adult and adolescent/pediatric patients. As your primary care physician, we strive to develop a trusting, long-term relationship with you and your family as part of our mission to always deliver the highest quality care.
Our all-inclusive approach to good health focuses on prevention and wellness to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer and other serious conditions. We will guide you through the complex cancer screening process, educating you on targeted, family history/genomic oriented, age-appropriate testing and imaging to maximize early detection and diagnose the presence of any disease before it has commenced.
Patients see Dr. Primas as a first line of defense for all their medical needs, and may be referred to a top, board certified subspecialist within our extensive local, national and international network of physicians in an expedient manner.
Routine Wellness Exams
We recommend routine wellness examinations at least once a year for patients of all ages. These annual check-ups are very important for staying healthy. During your exam, we will perform a complete medical evaluation to assess your health and discover problems before they start. Early detection of a disease could result in easier and more effective treatment.
Prior to your wellness exam, we recommend that you prepare by:
Writing down a list of problem or questions you have
Compiling a list of past, current and chronic illness
Medication allergy history
Current medication list, including all OTC meds and supplements
Prior surgical history
Review your family’s health history
Make sure that you have had your recommended screenings
Review any lifestyle changes that you feel need to be made
Our men’s and women’s health examinations both focus on general wellness and disease prevention, as well as certain male and female-specific conditions, respectively. The most frequently occurring problems among men include prostate issues, sexual health and sexual dysfunction. For women, common problems are urinary incontinence issues, sexual health and sexual dysfunction. If you are currently experiencing any of these issues, please contact us.
Our Urgent Care services give you access to a doctor you know and trust at a convenient time and place. In the case of injury, illness or any type of minor emergency, our trusted team is prepared to provide you with a thorough evaluation and the medical treatment you need. Urgent care appointments are available 24/7 by arrangement for new and established patients to help you avoid the hours-long wait and risks associated with sitting in an emergency room waiting area.
