Primary care is health care at the basic level. As opposed to seeing a specialist, this health care provider is typically your first contact when you need a physician. Primary care providers help establish your health baseline, which is very important today and for your future health. An internal medicine physician provides primary care for adults, a pediatric medicine physician provides primary cares for children, and a family medicine physician provides primary care for the entire family.

What can I expect at my appointment with SIU Medicine?


Latest Health Care Best Practices

At SIU Medicine, residents and medical students are a key part of your care team. Residency programs, and therefore our physicians, stay up-to-date on current literature and best practices. This allows our health care providers to bring the latest medical advances to your exam room sooner.


Holistic Approach to Care

During your preventative care annual exam at SIU Medicine, you may interact with your primary care provider in addition to a medical student or resident. Your care provider will spend valuable time with you. They will also provide you with more information to help you understand and prevent various health concerns. We strive to provide a more holistic care plan. This means thinking about the big picture, the whole person - mind and body.
