Primary Care

You have been coming to us for years for all your urgent care needs, now we provide long-term care. We found that a majority of our patients do not have a primary care provider or struggle with scheduling an appointment because most providers in the area are booked out 6-12 months. To meet the needs of our patients, we have added primary care appointments. This expands our services from just illness and injury, to a full-range of preventative care, management of chronic conditions and long-term care. Establishing a primary care provider is important for your adult health, make an appointment with us today!
