What is a Primary Care Physician?

Your primary care physician (PCP) is responsible for coordinating your medical care and serves as an access point to the health care delivery system. Together, your PCP and you make decisions on appropriate and necessary care and determine the best course of treatment. Your PCP serves as a point of continuity in managing your care over time.

Consider Your Needs:

This Provider Directory lists the PCPs, Specialists and other healthcare professionals who participate in the ProHealth Network. Use this guide to choose a PCP for yourself and each member of your family. For your convenience, we have listed the PCPs alphabetically by specialty.


PCPs practice in the fields of:

  • Family Practice
  • Internal Medicine
  • Pediatrics

See the directory glossary for definitions of the different specialties.

You can be assured that the ProHealth physicians are selected based upon a review of their professional qualifications, including licensure, educational background, medical training, and experience.

If you are choosing a new primary care physician, you may want to select a doctor close to where you live or work. You may also select a family practitioner who provides obstetrics care. Be sure to ask about this aspect of care when you call the physician's office.

In the Provider Directory, we have included a complete alphabetical index of all participating physicians in Tiers 1 and 2 of the Network. To see if a particular doctor participates in this network, go to the Provider Directory. You may refine your directory search to display physicians sorted by Tier 1 or Tier 2 or both Tiers. Please note that there are higher out-of-pocket expenses associated with the use of Tier 2 providers.
