Upper Chesapeake Primary Care - Accepting New Patients

Primary care physicians are the starting point for many patients seeking health care and they are advocates for the patient in coordinating the use of the entire health care system to benefit their particular needs. Practicing in private offices, community health centers, and hospitals, they diagnose and treat common illnesses and spot minor health problems before they become serious ones.  

In addition to treating health problems as they arise, they offer preventive services such as flu shots, cancer screening, and counseling on diet and smoking, and play an important role in helping to manage the care of patients with chronic health conditions.

Both of our locations are now recognized as Patient-Centered Medical Homes through NCQA
. The patient-centered medical home is a way of organizing primary care that emphasizes care coordination and communication to transform primary care into "what patients want it to be." Medical homes can lead to higher quality and lower costs, and can improve patients’ and providers’ experience of care.
