Your primary care provider (PCP), along with a healthy diet and exercise, is one of the greatest assets for your health. Primary care should be the first choice for most non-emergent health needs. No matter where you live, PCP’s fulfill the same important role for your health care.
Before you select the option of a walk-in clinic or urgent care, schedule a checkup with your primary care provider for non-urgent issues, regular checkups and school and sports physicals. We also offer DOT physicals and other Occupational Health Services for area businesses.

Family medicine falls within primary care and as you might expect, involves comprehensive care for the whole family. A family provider sees patients of any age (from newborns to seniors alike). Our family physicians are dedicated to establishing long-term, trusted relationships with patients and their families. As a primary care provider, a family physician is often the first line of care a patient sees, providing a wide range of care, including:
- Regular checkups
- Well-baby checkups
- Health Screenings and Risk Assessments
- Preventative Care
- Treatment of More Common Chronic Diseases
- and More
A pediatrician specializes in the care of children from birth through adolescence and covers a wide range of health services, including:
- Preventative Care
- Diagnosis and Treatment of Diseases and Illnesses
- Physical Examinations
- Treatment of Injuries
- Evaluating Physical, Social and Emotional Development
- and Much More!
The health needs of pediatric patients are unique. A pediatrician is specially trained to handle these needs and take the appropriate measures to ensure the best care and treatment possible for these young patients so they can have the healthiest futures possible.
An internist, or an internal medicine physician, is a doctor that specializes in internal organs and systems. However, it is important to note, an internist can also provide primary care services as well, as all of ours do. An internist can treat patients for a wide range of illnesses, as well as help to manage and care for chronic diseases.
