A new kind of primary care is here.

Primary care matters.

Did you know that primary care doctors have been nicknamed the “quarterbacks of healthcare,” and are widely considered the backbone of the healthcare system?

That’s because in addition to diagnosis and treatment of illness, primary care physicians guide patients towards long-term well-being. In fact, numerous studies have confirmed a simple, even life-affirming truth: having a primary care doctor keeps people healthier as they age.

But in today’s complex healthcare landscape, that’s not an option for a lot of people—and that might include you.

Why is the path to primary care so complicated?

In today’s on-demand culture, it’s baffling to consider the many steps patients must follow—juggling their schedules to get an appointment, taking time off work, traveling, waiting—just to diagnose and treat common conditions like pink eye or the flu.

Add rising costs, less time with providers and overextended doctors, and it’s no surprise the traditional system is no longer getting patients to care when they need it.

So...where are patients turning for care?

Online symptom checkers. Retail clinics. Emergency rooms. And in some cases...nowhere at all.

We need primary care that's built for today.

Our busy lives and a complex system may present obstacles, but getting timely, quality care counts...in sickness and in health.

From diagnosis and treatment of common ailments to routine checkups and ongoing monitoring of chronic conditions, a good relationship with primary care guides us to better outcomes and an overall better quality of life.
