Getting a Primary Care Doctor

Finding a Primary Doctor Near You

We want to help keep you and your family healthy. Seeing your primary care provider (PCP) on a regular basis is not only good for your health but important. When you or your family visits their PCP for check-ups, it can prevent visits to the emergency room and save you time.

A primary care provider is your main health care provider and will:

  • Provide care to keep you healthy
  • Teach you how to stay healthy
  • Identify and take care of common medical problems
  • Decide the best place for you to go when you are sick
  • Make referrals to specialists when needed

CCHP defines primary care providers as those practitioners who offer primary care medical services and include: ​

  • Family Practitioner/General Practitioner – A physician who provides primary health care to patients of all ages 
  • Geriatrician – A physician who is trained in the care of older adults
  • Internal Medicine – A physician who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of adult diseases
  • Nurse Practitioner – A health care practitioner who provides well-care and can diagnose/treat routine and minor conditions
  • Pediatrician – A physician who specializes in caring for the medical needs of children from birth to young adulthood
