Home » Services » Primary & Specialty Care
Primary Care is an essential part of overall health. In-home medical care is more likely to address current health issues in a timely manner and potentially prevent further medical issues than those who do not receive it. During each in-home medical visit, a thorough examination is conducted as well as an individualized treatment plan, which is monitored and adjusted according to routine follow-ups. In addition to providing your ongoing health care, your primary care provider will also recommend specialty services as necessary.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I keep my current primary care provider?
No. To prevent redundant or conflicting care, your Sentry Medical provider will serve as the only designated primary care provider. Sentry will collaborate with your previous providers to ensure that we have a complete understanding of your medical history.
How often will I be seen by my Sentry provider?
On average, patients are seen once every 4-6 weeks. Sentry providers coordinate care by managing medications and communicating with family and specialists. They also see their patients for urgent needs.
Does Sentry Medical see patients every time they are in my community?
The decision to see a patient is made by the individual provider at each visit to the community. Even if the patient is stable, the provider may follow up with chronic conditions and medication changes or emphasize active prevention of possible complications at each visit. The provider may also work with caregivers and staff to identify any changes in health conditions.
How can I communicate with my Sentry provider or my patient care coordinator?
To communicate with the members of your care team, you may call our office. After office hours and on weekends, our on-call provider is available to provide telephone triage for our patients.
Does Sentry Medical take Medicare?
Yes, we accept Medicare. We also accept many commercial insurance plans and self-pay methods.
