Meet Our Doctors

Primary Care Medicine is complemented by a staff of experienced physicians, nurses, aestheticians and assistants. At Primary Care Medicine, our physicians perform procedures full time at our center and do not oversee other facilities or nurses in practice, commonly done by many other practices. Primary Care Medicine specializes in Routine Primary Care Medicine, Schools and Colleges, and Women’s Health.
