General Medical Care (Primary Care)
Our board-certified physicians and nurse practitioners are prepared to address general medical care needs including illness and injuries, preventive exams, sexual health concerns, mental health issues, and the treatment of chronic illnesses like asthma and allergies.
We encourage students to ask for the same physician or nurse practitioner each visit. Research shows that people who have an ongoing relationship with a primary care physician or nurse practitioner have better overall health outcomes and lower total costs of care.
How do I choose a primary care clinician?
How can I develop a strong relationship with my own
doctor or nurse practitioner?
- Ask for the nurse practitioner or physician of your choice by name when you make an appointment.
- Plan ahead when possible for the best choice of appointment times.
- Value continuity. When the only available appointment with your preferred primary care clinician is at a less than ideal time, value continuity of care over preferred appointment time, whenever possible.
The medical staff does work as a team to care for all the patients of the practice. Never delay or avoid needed medical attention to wait for a specific physician or nurse practitioner.
