What is Primary Care?
Your primary care practitioner is the hub of your care – they coordinate everything related to your health, including specialists, referrals, medications, behavioral and mental health services, and much more.
What makes BNWS primary care unique?
Our providers pride themselves on truly listening to you and answering your questions so that you are empowered to live your healthiest life. Our care is centered around the patient – we want to help you meet health goals that are important to you.
Our care team includes internal medicine, geriatric physicians and adult and family nurse practitioners.
What to expect?
To become our patient, you will see one of our providers for a longer visit to establish care. Once you are an established patient you can schedule for follow-up visits, sick visits, and other services.
If you are having an urgent need or health issue after normal business hours, there is always a BNWS provider on-call ready to speak with you.
