Primary Care

Interventional Neurology

Indian River Medical Center’s neuro-interventionalist team provides advanced treatment for ischemic strokes using a procedure known as mechanical thrombectomy, a technique that has revolutionized stroke care in the United States. Each patient’s recovery is individualized, but research clearly shows the procedure has positive results for one of every three patients if treated within 24 hours.

Knowledge, skill and comprehensive healthcare remain the cornerstone of primary care. Our primary care physicians distinguish themselves by developing long-term patient-physician relationships that focus on preventative care and health promotion.

Primary Care is made up of two specialties — Family Medicine and Internal Medicine.

Family Medicine is the medical specialty which provides continuing, comprehensive health care for the whole family, both children and adults.

Internal Medicine provides care for patients over 18. They focus on comprehensive medicine specifically preventing, diagnosing and treating diseases that affect adults such as high-blood pressure and diabetes.

Both Family and Internal Medicine doctors serve as Primary Care physicians to deliver a range of acute, chronic and preventive 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 recommendations on maintaining a healthy lifestyle. They also manage chronic illnesses, often coordinating care provided by specialists.
