General Illness Treated by Primary Care

Adena Primary Care physicians provide care for patients in Southern Ohio for a number of general illnesses. Our physicians see patients who come in with a general list of symptoms, complaining of simply ‘not feeling well’. Our primary care physicians are trained to listen to patient symptoms, rule out conditions with questions, and create a treatment plan to address the patient’s illness.

The most common general illnesses that we see include:

Treating General Sickness

Identifying general illness can be a difficult task for Adena’s Primary Care physicians, but with our collective experience, we’ve seen just about everything. It is important that patients schedule routine visits to their PCP which establishes a relationship, patient history and helps the physician better diagnose these general illnesses that bring patients to the office.
