Primary care covers a range of day-to-day health services — wellness, prevention, and treatment for common illnesses. A primary care provider (PCP) is usually the first stop for common medical problems. Primary care providers typically consist of doctors, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants.

Primary care services involve the practice of general medicine, family medicine, or general pediatrics. People often turn to a general practitioner for annual physicals, a diagnosis of persistent symptoms, disease prevention, and referrals to specialists.

Your relationship with your primary care physician can be a lifelong healthcare journey built on trust and competent care. At NewYork-Presbyterian, we offer compassionate and expert primary care services to children, adolescents, and adults.
