We put our patients at the center of everything we do. Scripps family medicine physicians aim to establish a long-term relationship with you and your family, developing with you as your family grows. They focus on preventive medicine and wellness, and they share a goal of keeping you and your loved ones healthy with annual exams, screenings and vaccines.
Scripps has family medicine physicians at locations throughout San Diego from North County to South Bay. At Scripps Clinic and Scripps Coastal Medical Center, many of our board-certified family medicine doctors have early morning, evening and Saturday hours to accommodate your busy schedule. You can also schedule your appointment online through our Doctor Finder and MyScripps, our secure online patient portal. In addition, our doctors offer telemedicine options including video visits and e-visits. Call your physician’s office to find out if this option is appropriate and to schedule your visit.
Curbside arrival tells us when you’ve arrived and lets you wait in your vehicle until your exam room is ready. This service is available through the MyScripps mobile app for patients with scheduled appointments at our Scripps Clinic and Scripps Coastal outpatient locations. Learn more about how to use curbside arrival for your next appointment.
For patients 5 and older, many providers offer same-day appointments either in person or by video visit. Additionally, minor illnesses and injuries can be treated at one of our 17 HealthExpress walk-in clinics for minor illnesses and injuries; no appointment is necessary or you can call ahead to save your place in line to be seen.
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.
Our physician referral specialists can be reached at 800-727-4777 Monday through Friday, 7am to 7pm for more information about our doctors, services and classes.
