Find Your Symptoms, Find Your Care

  • If it is not an emergency, contact your primary care physician. This is the most affordable option.
  • If it is not an emergency and your primary care physician is not available, try an in-network immediate care center.
  • In case of an emergency, go to the nearest emergency room. If you are unsure if you can get there on your own, call 9-1-1.

Primary Care Provider

If you aren’t feeling well, your primary care physician is the first person you should contact. A primary care physician knows your medical history, allowing you to build a relationship over time.

Make an appointment with your primary care physician for:

  • Lab tests such as liver function, thyroid, hormone levels and cholesterol
  • Ongoing medications like birth control
  • Chronic conditions such as anxiety, depression, diabetes or high cholesterol
  • Referrals to other medical specialists
