Primary Care the Westbank banks on
At West Jefferson Medical Center, your Primary Care provider is so much more than a doctor. Most of us think of primary care in times of sickness, but your primary care doctor specializes in caring for you as a whole person.
Having a trusted primary care physician who is aware of your medical history is the best way to prevent future medical issues and keep your overall health on the right track. Our providers understand the importance of primary care at every stage of life, especially for our community's growing senior population. Whether you’re transitioning into adult medicine, battling chronic illness, or staying healthy with annual checkups, our experienced team is here to provide the care you need. With same and next day appointments available, as well as in-clinic and virtual care visits, we’re dedicated to keeping you informed about your health and providing the right care every step of the way.
