Primary care providers are the starting point for many patients seeking health care. They are advocates for the patient in coordinating the use of the entire health care system to benefit their particular needs. 

Practicing in private offices, community health centers and hospitals, they diagnose and treat common illnesses and spot minor health problems before they become serious ones.

In addition to treating health problems as they arise, primary care providers offer preventive services that include:

  • Annual physicals 
  • Cancer screenings
  • Counseling on diet and smoking
  • Flu shots
  • Vaccinations

Our primary care providers also play an important role in helping to manage the care of patients with chronic health conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure.
