Appointments support a commitment to continuity
When you call 573-882-7481 you are typically given a same- or next-day appointment with your chosen primary care provider (PCP). Keeping the same PCP allows you to maintain long-term relationships with medical professionals who know you and your medical history, and contributes to high quality of care and satisfaction.
