Efland, NC Primary Care Services
If you are looking to build a relationship with a primary care provider who has your best interests in mind, come to Chapel Hill Primary Care. Our Efland primary care center is home to experienced medical professionals who provide preventive care services and help people who have acute or chronic illnesses. Whether you have the symptoms of a respiratory infection or you need your annual physical exam, we can help.
You should have a physical exam at least once per year to make sure you are in good health. If you have high blood pressure, diabetes, or another chronic medical condition, your annual physical is very important for monitoring your health and making sure your disease is not worsening over time. Our Efland primary care providers will put you at ease and explain every step of the exam so you understand what is happening at all times. We also have an on-site laboratory to save you time and ensure you get your test results as quickly as possible.
Regular health screenings are very important, especially as you start to age. Our friendly staff members conduct in-office screenings and order screening tests as needed. If you need a colonoscopy, mammogram, PSA blood test, or other age-appropriate screening, we’ll arrange for you to have the test and let you know when the results are ready.
Immunizations and Vaccinations
Keeping your immunizations and vaccinations up-to-date can help you avoid serious illnesses. Getting vaccinated is especially important if you plan to travel out of the country. Talk to one of our Efland primary care providers if you would like to be vaccinated against measles, chickenpox, tetanus, pertussis, meningitis, hepatitis, or other diseases. We also provide flu shots to protect you against common strains of the influenza virus.

Care for Chronic Medical Issues
If you have a chronic medical issue such as asthma, diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), or heart disease, it is very important to see a doctor regularly. Your primary care provider will monitor your condition to prevent it from getting worse. One of our doctors can also help you make lifestyle changes to improve your health if you have high cholesterol, high blood pressure, or another risk factor for a more serious condition.
