Primary care physicians provide a spectrum of care. Often considered to be your personal doctor, primary care physicians are most familiar with your health history and help you make the best decisions for your health.
Presbyterian/St. Luke’s primary care physicians pride themselves on taking the time to get to know their patients and providing individualized care that best meets your health needs.
In partnership with you, they ensure you get recommended medical screenings and health risk assessments; provide preventive care and teach healthy lifestyle choices; help you get referrals to medical specialists when necessary and evaluate the urgency of your medical problems and direct you to the best place for care.
Choosing a Primary Care Physician
