Primary Care

Our Primary Care services include follow-up of acute and chronic health care problems using Care Teams. As a part of our Patient Centered Medical Home Initiative, Care Teams are essential to ensuring that our patients get consistent Standards of Care. The Care Teams each consist of a primary care provider, nurse, medical assistant and a receptionist. Based on a patient's medical needs, some additional people could be a part of a patient's Care Team. They might include our specialty providers like, the nutritionist, optometrist or even the podiatrist who are all conveniently onsite! If a specialty provider is needed outside of CHS, we have a referral department that will help arrange those appointments! We also offer in-house referrals and consultations as they are needed.

When patients have questions or concerns, the Care Teams will make sure materials and explanations are in easily understood formats. We strive on meeting our patients where they are, so that we can work together to improve their health!


We want our patients to work with their Care Teams to actively make decisions regarding their care. All treatment plans are based on Standards of Care. Patients will leave their appointment with a goal they set with their provider for their next appointment! This way our patients are empowered to help make choices that will improve their health!
