FirstHealth offers a variety of primary care practices to meet the health care needs of your family. FirstHealth practices are happy to accept new patients as well as physician referrals.

Our family medicine providers can treat all ages—from babies to grandparents, while our internal medicine specialists focus on teen and adult patients. 

To better serve you, the providers at our primary care practices see patients by appointment and also offer same-day appointments for acute illnesses.

Appointment Information:

Please arrive a few minutes before your scheduled appointment and check in with the front office receptionist. We also ask that you bring the following items to your office visit:

  • All medications you are currently taking
  • Current insurance information, including your insurance card
  • If you have more than one insurance carrier, please let us know which plan is primary

If you must cancel an appointment, please call at least 24 hours ahead of your scheduled appointment. This will allow other patients to be scheduled for an appointment in your place.

Payment is expected at the time of service. You may pay by cash, personal check, Visa or MasterCard. Payment plans are available; see the patient accounts representative prior to your appointment for more information.

FirstHealth Primary Care will file your primary and secondary insurance. However, all deductibles and co-payments should be paid in full at the time of service.

FirstHealth Primary Care providers accept assignment on all Medicare charges. Patients are responsible for their annual deductible and 20 percent of the allowable charges at the time services are rendered.
