Primary care physicians (PCP) are doctors and advanced practice providers (nurse practitioners and physician assistants) who specialize in family medicine or internal medicine.

Your PCP is your healthcare partner and advocate. Together you build a relationship as he or she gets to know you, your family and your health history. They are here to provide your care over the long term and help you maintain your best health.

Treatments and Additional Care

Your PCP can treat common conditions, including illnesses due to infection and minor injuries, as well as

  • Counseling on diet and nutrition
  • Help managing chronic conditions such as high blood pressure or diabetes
  • Provide screenings for early diagnosis of health issues such as heart disease or cancer
  • Vaccinations

Should you need advanced care, your PCP will refer you to specialists and coordinate your care from treatment to wellness.
