What is a primary care physician?

A primary care physician is a doctor of medicine or osteopathy who specializes in family medicine, pediatric care, internal medicine, or senior health. In addition, our physician assistants and nurse practitioners are part of your primary care team.

Your partner in health

Your primary care provider is the person you choose to be your partner in health—be it for regular, preventive care or as your first contact for any medical problem or mental health concern that may arise. Your primary care physician also coordinates any other care you need, such as a visit to a specialist or hospitalization.

In addition, seeing your primary care provider for an annual physical can help you maintain your health.

 

When it can’t wait for your provider

If you have suffered a serious injury or have symptoms of a serious condition such as chest pains, difficulty breathing, severe abdominal pain, or have a possible emergency, you need to seek emergency care or call 911 right away.

Family medicine

A family physician is trained to treat the health care needs of men, women and children of all ages throughout their lives. Family physicians provide a wide range of health services, including preventive care, obstetrics, routine gynecological care and pediatric services, as well as care for chronic conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes.

Internal medicine

Internal medicine physicians, also known as internists, are trained specifically to care for adults 18 and older. This includes both healthy individuals as well as those who have complex medical issues, such as heart disease.

We’re committed to increasing access to behavioral health care services for all our patients. That’s why we’re integrating behavioral health into our primary care clinics. Licensed clinical social workers, psychologists or other behavioral health care specialists will work alongside your primary care provider to offer immediate resources to existing patients with mental health concerns.

Some primary care locations are already offering behavioral health services, with plans to integrate these important resources into most UCHealth primary care clinics in the coming months.

Behavioral health services are integrated into the following clinics:
