How do I find a family medicine physician?

Choosing a family medicine physician to be your primary care provider is an important decision. Your primary care doctor acts as your personal physician and is usually the first physician you see for any health problem. As the quarterback for your health care, they help you get and stay healthy and coordinate any specialty services. If you’re considering an HMO or managed health care plan, you’ll need to choose a primary care physician.


To help you choose the best primary care physician for you and your family, check our Doctor Finder. Whether you’re looking for a physician who speaks a certain language or has specific expertise in nutrition, women’s health or sports medicine, our Doctor Finder can help.


The Doctor Finder tool can be used to search for a doctor, nurse practitioner or physician’s assistant by name, specialty, hospital affiliation, gender, language and practice location. Many of our physicians have videos online to help you get to know them.
