Primary/Family Care

We have two primary care facilities and an internal medicine practice to take care of all your general health needs:

Johnston Medical Associates – Clayton

Johnston Medical Associates – Kenly

Johnston Medical Associates – Internal Medicine

Our family-care providers, which include doctors, nurse practitioners, and medical staff, deliver a range of acute and chronic medical care services. In addition to diagnosing and treating illness, they also provide preventive care, including routine checkups, health-risk assessments, immunization and screening tests, and personalized counseling on maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

How We Can Help

Your provider will talk with you about your symptoms, prior medical history and other health details, followed by a physical examination. When necessary, you may be administered screening tests and immunizations. After reviewing your symptoms, medical history, and any test results, you and your provider will create a plan for your care. Your plan may include further testing, specialist referral, medication, therapy, diet or life-style changes, or education. Your provider will follow up with you to be sure your plan is correctly customized for you.

When choosing a primary care provider, look for a provider who:

  • Is qualified to give quality care
  • Has the training and background that meet your needs
  • Takes steps to prevent illness, such as talking to you about quitting smoking or getting to a healthy weight
  • Has privileges at the hospital of your choice
  • Is part of your health plan, unless you can you afford to pay extra
  • Encourages you to ask questions
  • Listens to you
  • Explains things clearly
  • Treats you with respect

We are confident that our providers and staff at our primary care facilities will meet all of these needs.
