What can I expect during a primary family care visit?

When you come in for primary care at Maryvale Family Practice, you can expect a patient-focused evaluation. Nahla takes a holistic approach to your care, which means she focuses on your whole-body health, not just your specific symptoms or disease.

During your visit, she spends time talking to you to fully understand your health history. She also asks about your health concerns and goals.

For your convenience, Maryvale Family Practice offers in-house diagnostic testing, including:

  • Ultrasounds

After she’s gathered all of the objective information about your health, Nahla spends time talking to you about your diagnosis and treatment options. Having a better understanding of your health condition and possible treatments helps you make a more informed decision about your care.
