Which physician is right for you?

Building a relationship with a physician that you select is an important part of your health care. Each member of your family should have his/her own physician for preventive care, treatment of illness, and referral to a specialist when needed. Whether you're a new or long-time member, we encourage you to take this vital step and select a personal physician.

Please note that in some locations you may also choose a nurse practitioner or physician assistant as your personal practitioner.

Personalized health care

Our physicians provide personalized health care services within certain primary care departments:
  • Adult or Internal Medicine--treats adults (specializes in diagnosis and treatment of nonsurgical diseases)
  • Family Practice--treats people of all ages
  • Pediatrics--treats children up to age 16 or 18 (depending on the facility)
Though we encourage you to make your selection early, you may change or choose your personal physician at any time.
