Choose a Primary Care Provider
Finding the right primary care provider is the first step as a new patient. This is who you should see for checkups and other routine medical appointments.
Having a primary care provider allows you to establish a trusting relationship with one person who gets to know you and your medical history, and provides continuity of care for you and your family.
A primary care provider:
- Evaluates and treats day-to-day health problems
- Advises you on preventive screenings at different stages throughout your life
- Follows up with you to explain test results and judge how well your treatment is working
- Refers you to qualified specialists when needed
- Maintains the big picture of your overall health and treatment needs
Your primary care provider can be a physician, or a nurse practitioner or physician assistant.
Primary care includes these specialties:
When selecting a primary care provider, you may consider:
- Clinic or office location
- Specialty (Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, or Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine)
- Your medical conditions, perhaps matching your needs to the interests or expertise of the provider
To learn about our providers, browse the directory of medical staff, making sure to select your preferred location.
