Primary Care

Building a trusting relationship

Your primary care provider (PCP) is your partner in managing your health. This is the person you turn to when managing a chronic condition or when an illness or injury takes you by surprise. PCPs provide care that helps you stay healthy and well.

Conditions and treatments

The care you need from a partner you trust

You can think of PCPs as general medical providers. They take care of your basic health needs and work with specialists if you require specialized care. Over time, your PCP gets to know you and your health history. This helps you get timely, accurate diagnoses and treatments that are just right for you.

We provide

We diagnose and treat a variety of conditions in primary care. These include:

  • Chronic conditions such as asthma, diabetes and high blood pressure

  • Conditions that come on suddenly, such as flu, sore throats or low back pain

  • Mental health issues such as anxiety and depression

  • Minor injuries, including sprained ankles, cuts and burns

Find tips for talking with your health care provider and how to prepare for your visit.

PCPs are involved in many aspects of your care. We may:

  • Conduct routine checkups and physical exams

  • Coordinate medical care if you see more than one provider

  • Do minor surgical procedures

  • Deliver preventive care, such as immunizations

  • Offer education and counseling to help you lead a healthier lifestyle

  • Prescribe medications and therapies

  • Provide routine gynecological care for women, such as Pap smears

  • Refer you to specialists

  • Schedule screening exams to find diseases like cancer before you have symptoms

There may be times when a serious or long-term health problem makes it hard for you to get to a medical appointment. If you live in certain areas, our providers may come to you to provide care.

Sometimes serious and long-term health conditions make it challenging to get to a medical appointment at a clinic. When this happens, Home-Based Primary Care (HBPC) allows the medical team to come to your home.

Your medical team includes a UW Health primary care doctor, nurse practitioner, social worker, registered nurse and medical assistant. Your Home-Based Primary Care team will help you stay safe in your home as long as possible. Your home can be a private home, senior apartment community or assisted living facility.

Home-Based Primary Care provided at your home may include:

  • Visits when you don’t feel well

  • Help with social support and resource needs

  • Work on your healthcare goals

  • Reviewing and managing your medications and simplifying when possible

  • Improving support for you and your caregiver

  • Some changes in your health may require you to travel to the emergency room or hospital.

  • Your medical team will continue to be there for you, by communicating your goals of care and needs to the facility once you are ready to return home.

If you live in zip codes 53705, 53711, 53717 or 53719, and you have difficulty leaving your home because of your medical condition, you may be eligible to receive home visits.
