Primary Care Services

At Memorial Hermann Health System, personalized, integrated health care begins with your primary care provider (PCP). Whether you are looking for routine wellness care and prevention or chronic-disease management and coordination with specialists, a PCP is your dedicated health partner through each stage of life. Your PCP utilizes the latest research and technology to keep you healthy, and to diagnose and manage illness when you are not. When you start with a PCP affiliated with Memorial Hermann, you have direct access to the most complete range of specialty care and treatment options available in Greater Houston.

It all starts with primary care. Healthy or sick, young or old, having a dedicated health partner can make a big difference. PCPs help you stay healthy with preventive care, immunizations and screenings, and can diagnose and manage a wide range of illnesses. By developing a trusted relationship with your PCP, you can feel confident taking charge of your health and knowing they can easily coordinate advanced, specialized care through the Memorial Hermann network of specialty physicians.

  • Routine and preventive care, including physical exams, immunizations and screenings
