Choosing a primary care physician (PCP) – whether a family medicine or an internal medicine doctor – is one of the most important steps you can take to protect and maintain your health. Whatever your age or health, your PCP will help you become the healthiest person you can be — today and in the years to come.
Your PCP takes the time to listen and get to know you and you family's history, your lifestyle, and your concerns. Armed with that knowledge, your PCP is someone you can trust with confidence to advise you on how to stay healthy, treat medical conditions, from common to complex, and identify early health care problems.
If you ever have a medical problem or condition that requires specialized care, your UPMC primary care doctor is your connection to the expert help you need. As a member of the UPMC network, your PCP has direct access to nationally recognized medical experts in dozens of specialties. You can be sure you will be treated with advanced care and the latest technology.
With nearly a thousand UPMC primary care doctors and hundreds of locations, it's easy to find the right PCP close to where you live or work. Managing your care is simple, too, with access to MyUPMC, our free patient portal, and a suite of mobile apps. Plus, many primary care offices offer expanded hours and online appointments so you can get care that fits your needs — and your schedule.
