A primary care provider (PCP) is a doctor or nurse practitioner who specializes in family medicine, internal medicine or pediatrics and is your main healthcare provider. This is the person you see first for routine care and health problems and who will refer you to a specialist when needed.
Choosing a primary care provider is an important step in maintaining your health for a lifetime. We strive to develop a special partnership with each patient and family member. We are committed to helping all members of our community to achieve good health and improve the quality of their lives, which includes addressing social and behavioral issues as well. Think of your PCP as the central part of your "medical home" - a team dedicated to helping you get the best possible healthcare.
The experienced, skilled surgeons at PMH treat a wide range of conditions using multiple approaches for basic to complex surgical interventions. We know that having surgery is a very personal, sometimes emotional experience. You can trust us to deliver the best possible care with the best outcomes. Discuss your condition with your primary care provider to see what treatments and surgical options are available for you.
