Primary Care and Chronic Care Management
Are you or someone you love managing a chronic condition? If yes, are you communicating with your primary care physician about your medications and treatment plan?

If you are scheduling regular visits, our primary care physicians can also help identify gaps in your treatment and monitor your condition between visits with a specialist. You can also do most of these check-ins via telemedicine, making it that much more convenient.

When being treated for a chronic condition, it is also important for you to maintain a healthy perspective on life and strong mental outlook. Our Integrated Wellness Program is an alignment of services designed to treat the whole person –– body, mind and spirit.
This includes everything from nutrition to pain relief, and physical therapy to medications. Wellness is also supported by services such as Screenings, Checkups, Coordinated Treatment and Patient Education. The more you communicate with your primary care provider, the more they can help you with chronic care management.
