WHAT IS PRIMARY CARE?

Interesting question. A primary care physician has been the first stop to diagnose & treat illness. Like the old family doctor, primary care was the first place to go for all your health needs. Now, primary care is where you go when you’re sick & want to feel better & when you are well & want to get healthier.

WHY DO I NEED A PRIMARY CARE TEAM?

At CityLife Neighborhood Clinics, we believe that “Only you can improve your health, but you don’t have to do it alone.” Your Medicare Advantage or Medicaid plan requires you to select a primary care physician, but we believe health care has become so complex that a single physician isn’t enough. Maintaining & improving health takes a village.

WHO IS ON MY PRIMARY CARE TEAM?

CityLife primary care team

YOU

Without you there isn’t a team. Only you know how you feel & what you want your health to be. You choose your care team that best fits you.

YOUR FAMILY

Your health is yours & yours alone. Your family & whom you include in it is equally as personal. We believe whoever you are connected with & is important to you & your health family & on your care team.

Doctor or Nurse

DOCTOR OR NURSE PRACTITIONER

At CityLife Neighborhood Clinics, a doctor or nurse practitioner is the clinical team leader. When you are sick, the doctor or nurse practitioner figures out what’s going on & how to help you feel better. Over time, the doctor or nurse practitioner works with you, your family & your care team to keep you well & get healthier.

NURSE

The nurse is your go-to person on the care team, who makes sure you have what you need to feel better or to get healthier when you need it. Whether inside CityLife Neighborhood Clinics or outside, your nurse keeps everyone on the same page.

CLINICAL ASSISTANT

Everybody needs a helping hand & so do you & your care team. The clinical assistant listens to you, learns about how you feel & shares it with your care team during your visit.

CityLife's team

HEALTH GUIDE

Your health is about you — all of you. How you think, feel & act when faced with life & how you deal with challenges & make choices impacts your health. With a health guide on your care team, we support the changes you want to make to get healthier.

MEDICATION GUIDE

Medications are confusing — what to take, when to take it, what to take it with & what not to take it with. A pharmacist serves as your medication guide on your care team to help you finally make sense of it all.

ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT

Paperwork! You & your care team have an assistant to help you with all the paperwork, scheduling & other needs. Your care team’s administrative assistant will simplify the process & take the administrative burden off of you & your care team.

HOW IS MY PRIMARY CARE TEAM AT CITYLIFE DIFFERENT FROM ANY OTHER DOCTOR’S OFFICE?

Great question!

It is your care team. A care team with more resources & expertise like the nurse, health guide & medication guide than typically are available at a doctor’s office — a care team that truly knows you.

Our teamwork is designed for you & your care team. Giving us the time to listen & learn. Your care team is here for you by phone 24 hours a day. If you’re sick, we’re here to help you feel better, & if you’re well, we’re here to help you get healthier.

Your team goes beyond the clinic walls. Our job is to keep everyone involved in your health on the same page.
