Specialized Care for You and Your Family
If you are experiencing problems or have any health concerns, your primary care provider should be the first person you talk to. A primary care provider is a physician, physician assistant or nurse practitioner who specializes in family medicine, internal medicine or pediatrics. They serve as your main point of contact in the St. Luke’s health system.
The Starting Point of Your Care
Primary care providers often collaborate with other health care professionals to meet your specific needs. You may be able to get a same-day appointment if you have an acute illness or injury.
Contact your primary care provider as a starting point for concerns such as:
- Preventative care
- Follow-up care
- Prescriptions/medication management
- Immunizations/flu shots
- Chronic disease management
Convenient Care Options
St. Luke’s offers a variety of convenient care options to choose from as well. At St. Luke’s eCare, Q Care and Urgent Care, you can be treated for minor illnesses and injuries without an appointment. Some of our primary care clinics have Urgent Care or Q Care at the clinic.
