How to Choose a Primary Care Provider (PCP)
Making the Right Choice for You
Choosing the right primary care provider (PCP) is one of the most important decisions you can make for your health and well-being. That’s why Prospect Medical's extensive physician network gives you more choices for the care you need. You can choose the one who best meets your and your family’s needs by name, location, specialty or language.
A PCP can be a general or family practice doctor who cares for your entire family, or a pediatrician or internal medicine physician. Many of our providers also have special training and skills, such as speaking multiple languages.
The PCP you select works with you and Prospect Medical Group to help coordinate your healthcare needs.
