What Is Primary Care?

At Bella Terra, we offer expert primary care to improve your health and manage medical concerns. This type of medicine encompasses a broad field of expertise. When you visit us, you can receive care for many different medical and health needs, including (but not limited to):

  • Treatment for cold and flu symptoms
  • Care for aches, pains, and physical injuries
  • Diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic illness
  • Health screenings and monitoring for conditions and diseases
  • Preventative care and education on healthier lifestyles
  • General health and wellness counseling
  • Coordination of specialty care when needed

Our practice focuses on internal medicine, which is primary care for adult men and women. Although we are not a family medicine health center, we can offer helpful recommendations for patients seeking a primary care provider for their children.

Bella Terra Primary Care serves as a kind of health care home base for our patients. Most return yearly for a physical exam to stay on top of their health, and they can enjoy access to a variety of key medical services on site. When an issue calls for specialty care from another provider, such as a sports medicine physician or a cardiologist, our staff provides helpful referrals to ensure that patients receive the care they need.

Dr. Karki and her staff at Bella Terra are honored to provide these services in primary care. Huntington Beach area residents can rest assured that from their very first visit, they’ll be treated with respect and compassion in a judgment-free health care setting. Furthermore, our doctors and staff commit to providing comprehensive care to ensure that each patient’s health is attended to on a personal level. We pay close attention to health history, family medical history, individual lifestyle, and other factors to provide medical care that’s tailored to you. Bella Terra Primary Care is a trusted partner in caring for your health, ensuring that you have convenient access to the services you need to improve your health outcomes.

Our Services

At Bella Terra Primary Care, we offer a range of helpful services to ensure that you get the expert care you need. When you become a patient, you have access to all of these services, including some which can save you a trip to the hospital or even to our own health center. Take a closer look at our key services to discover the many ways in which Bella Terra can serve as a partner in your health and wellness journey.

Internal Medicine

Dr. Karki is board certified in internal medicine and provides a strong focus on primary care and disease prevention for every patient. With a comprehensive approach and broad knowledge of each organ system and disease type, Dr. Karki emphasizes health education, appropriate screenings and prevention, and care of chronic diseases.

Chronic adult diseases, which are especially prevalent today, require the attention of an internal medicine doctor (also known as an internist). In this specialty, physicians closely examine the ways in which the systems of the body work together and affect one another in order to better understand the causes and symptoms associated with medical conditions.

Some of the many issues that our internal medicine staff can help to prevent, diagnose, and treat include:

  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Allergies
  • Diabetes
  • Sinus infections


Telemedicine is the practice of doctors and patients meeting virtually to discuss medical concerns and symptoms. At Bella Terra Primary Care, our patients can visit with their doctor or provider while remaining in the safety of their homes or without having to take excessive time off of work to attend in-person appointments. Our staff use real-time audio and video to discuss medical concerns and symptoms with patients. Patients can use whatever device works best for them (computer, tablet, or phone) to attend these virtual appointments.

Convenience is only one of the many benefits of telehealth services at Bella Terra. It also contributes to a reduced risk for the spread of illness, enhanced comfort for the patient, and reduced costs and time spent to attend appointments. The ability to schedule virtual medical appointments can also contribute to more consistent screening and health monitoring for chronic conditions, particularly for those who have certain barriers or challenges to traveling to our health center.

While some medical services must be administered in person, there are a number of healthcare visits that can be easily facilitated in a virtual setting, including:

  • Flu, cold, or allergy issues
  • Follow-up visits after treatment
  • Test results review
  • Medication management
  • Chronic disease management
  • Wellness and lifestyle coaching
  • Minor urgent care
  • General health concerns

Vaccines and Immunization

Immunization is a key component of health care at Bella Terra Primary Care. Vaccines are essential for the prevention and control of infectious disease. They are also one of the most cost-effective health care interventions. In addition to protecting your personal health, vaccines greatly reduce spending on future healthcare.

The recommended vaccine schedules for children, teens, and adults are somewhat complex, causing many to feel overwhelmed at the prospect of figuring out which vaccines they need. At Bella Terra, Dr. Karki can advise you on the recommended vaccinations and provide additional guidance to help you meet your health and wellness goals.

Some of the many immunization options available at Bella Terra Primary Care include:

  • Flu: Influenza vaccine
  • Coronavirus: COVID-19 vaccine
  • HPV: Human papillomavirus vaccine
  • HepB: Hepatitis B vaccine
  • MMR: Measles, mumps, and rubella (German measles) vaccine
  • Varicella: Chickenpox vaccine
  • Meningococcal conjugate: Meningitis vaccine
  • Tdap: Tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis booster (recommended during pregnancy)
  • Shingles: Recommended for adults 50 years and older

Physical Exams

Routine physical exams are one of the comprehensive care services available at Bella Terra. During these regular visits, our doctors and staff can monitor for potential health issues, schedule appropriate medical screenings, and ensure preventative care is put in place to avoid more serious health concerns down the road. Scheduling a physical exam once per year is highly recommended to create a clearer picture of physical health on an ongoing basis.

Dr. Karki and our team at Bella Terra will help to put you at ease to create a comfortable and convenient physical exam. You’ll discuss medical history, including past conditions, current health concerns, and general lifestyle questions. In addition, your physical exams provide you with an opportunity to ask your physician about any health issues that may be concerning you.

Some of the key components of care that are typically included in our physical exams include:

  • Taking your vital signs (pulse, temperature, blood pressure, etc.)
  • Listening with a stethoscope to check the heart and lungs
  • Manual examinations of the neck, throat, and abdomen
  • Tests for reflexes, muscle strength, and balance
  • If necessary, blood or urine samples to check cholesterol levels, blood sugar, etc.

EKGs On Site

Bella Terra Primary Care makes it easy to monitor heart health with onsite electrocardiograms (EKGs). This noninvasive and painless test can provide insight into your overall heart function. Rather than having to go to a hospital or clinic, you can visit our Huntington Beach offices to receive your screening in a comfortable and caring environment. Our trained and experienced staff are able to administer your EKG test and provide a detailed analysis concerning your heart’s performance and any potential issues that need to be addressed.

In addition to overall heart monitoring, EKGs can also be used as a diagnostic health test. Patients who are experiencing possible heart problems or symptoms like chest pain, shortness of breath, rapid pulse, and dizziness may need this screening to help determine the underlying cause, which could include:

  • Irregular heart rhythm (arrhythmias)
  • Blocked or narrowed arteries
  • Heart damage
  • Heart failure
  • Evidence of a previous heart attack
  • Effectiveness of heart disease treatments, such as pacemakers
