Health care today can be over-complicated. The goal at Memorial Hermann is to simplify the process with fully integrated care through our comprehensive network of physicians and services. Patients often come in without knowing what’s wrong or where to turn. Having a dedicated PCP, who can coordinate whatever type of care you need, is the answer.

What to Expect From Your PCP

A Memorial Hermann PCP is your trusted health partner and your first point of contact when you need medical attention. The PCP will get to know your health goals, health history, any chronic conditions you may have, and your treatment options. If you need to see a specialist, your PCP can refer you to someone to care for you. Our PCPs have working relationships with a range of specialty providers, so you can feel comfortable knowing you are part of a team effort to care for all of your medical needs.

These providers work under the supervision of a physician, and are licensed to provide patient care, order diagnostic testing, prescribe medication and refer patients to specialists.
