    Stay Connected to Your Doctor

    Emergencies happen, but a proactive approach to your health care is one of the most significant things you can do right now. Your primary care provider is the first line of defense in your medical care and usually the first to diagnose a health problem. Similarly, if you are under the care of a specialist for a chronic condition, please reach out to that specialist as your health care needs require.

    If you need a primary care provider or specialist, you can locate one in our physician directory.

    Depending on your needs, your doctor may provide you an in-person evaluation or a virtual visit. Virtual visits work for many health care needs, including routine appointments, evaluations and prescription refills. Call your provider’s office to discuss your options. Or, existing patients can communicate with your provider via MyChart.
