Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

Primary care provides all of your basic medical needs, including:

  • Patient education
  • Injury care
  • Disease prevention and screening
  • Care coordination

It’s important to invest in primary care, even if you feel healthy. Many chronic illnesses develop slowly and present few symptoms. Routine checkups at Elora Health and Wellness can protect your health and provide peace of mind.

What services does primary care offer?

At Elora Health and Wellness, Dr. Rookwood offers various primary care services, including:

Annual exams

An annual exam checks in on your physical and mental health. It presents an opportunity to ask Dr. Rookwood questions, update your immunizations, and learn about steps you can take to improve your well-being. 

Chronic disease management

Chronic illnesses like high blood pressure (hypertension), high cholesterol, diabetes, and arthritis can affect your quality of life. Chronic disease management can relieve uncomfortable symptoms and keep the condition from worsening.

Acute care

Dr. Rookwood regularly provides sick visits and injury care to patients 14 and older. Teens and adults visit the practice to receive treatment for colds, coughs, headaches, migraines, sprains, strains, abdominal pain, ear infections, and more.

Specialized care

Dr. Rookwood offers more specialized care, including Department of Transportation (DOT) physicals, medical clearance physicals, and care coordination. She can also fill out specific medical forms, except for those required by the New York City Taxi & Limousine Commission (TLC).


Immunizations teach your immune system to destroy harmful invaders, such as viruses and bacteria. The immunizations that can most benefit you depend on your age and health history. 

Lab testing

Lab testing provides analysis of your blood, urine, or saliva. Dr. Rookwood uses lab tests to identify problems invisible to the eye, such as thyroid disease, high cholesterol, and diabetes.

Dr. Rookwood tailors your primary care visit based on your health history, goals, and needs.
