How do I find a family medicine physician?

Scripps is the provider San Diego turns to for excellence in health care. Let us be there for you and your family. It is important to have a primary care physician as they act as your personal physician, providing annual exams to monitor your health, complete annual screenings and manage vaccinations. They are also the first doctor you see for any health problems you may experience. As the quarterback for your health care, they help you get and stay healthy, and they’ll coordinate any specialty care you might need. If you’re considering an HMO or managed health care plan, you’ll need to choose a primary care physician as part of your enrollment.


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.
