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. Most telemedicine visits with your family doctor can be conveniently scheduled online or call your physician’s office to schedule your visit. If you need language assistance, qualified medical interpreters are available seven days a week at Scripps' locations during regular business hours.
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.
Many providers offer same-day appointments either in person or by video visit. Additionally, minor illnesses and injuries can be treated at a HealthExpress walk-in clinic; no appointment is necessary. You can go online to view wait times and select the On My Way option to be added to the queue of patients waiting 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. Our primary care physicians are the first doctor you see for any health concerns. They provide annual exams to monitor your health, complete annual screenings, and manage vaccinations and chronic health conditions. As your primary care physician, they help you get and stay healthy, and 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 family physician for you and your family, check our Doctor Finder. Whether you’re looking for a family 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 family physicians have videos online to help you get to know them.
Our physician referral specialists can be reached at 800-727-4777 Monday - Friday, 7 am - 7 pm, for more information about our doctors, services and classes.
