Primary Care Providers (PCP in medical-ese) at Hall Health Center are those Physicians and Nurse Practitioners who deliver comprehensive health care in the clinic setting. This means they take care of a wide variety of problems--acute medical illnesses such as common colds, sinus infections, stomach problems, and skin rashes, for example, but also more chronic health problems like acne, depression, asthma, high blood pressure, and allergies.
Primary Care Providers (PCPs) also do physicals and annual women's health care examinations, counsel their patients on healthy lifestyle choices, and recommend and prescribe birth control pills and other medicines. In sum, they provide total health care and work closely with specialists in other fields of health and medicine to keep their patients (you!) healthy.
We urge each patient of Hall Health Center to become comfortable with one of our providers and make an effort to schedule their appointments with that person over time. The more each patient and PCP get to know each other, the more personalized and satisfying the care can become.
Please ask any of our staff at any time if you have a question about how and when to pick a PCP for your ongoing health care.
