Hands On Medicine
What is a Primary Care Provider or PCP?

A Primary Care Provider (PCP) is your first contact for medical care. A PCP can be a doctor, nurse practitioner, or naturopath with proper training. We at Hands On Medicine are nurse practitioners. It is important to have an established PCP whom you see for regular check-ups and illnesses.

Once a patient establishes care at Hands On Medicine, they will then also have access to other components of our integrated health care model, including individual, couple, group and family counseling available with our Licensed Clinical Social Workers Myra Bazell, LCSW and Diana Frates, LCSW.

What is Integrated Healthcare?

Integrated health care is an approach characterized by a high degree of collaboration and communication among health professionals. What makes integrated health care unique is the sharing of information among team members related to patient care and the establishment of a comprehensive treatment plan to address the biological, psychological and social needs of the patient. Since at Hands On Medicine most of your healthcare team is all under the same roof, this is especially efficient!

Hands On Medicine is a registered Tier 3 Patient-Centered Primary Care Home. What does that mean?

A Patient-Centered Primary Care Home is a health clinic that is recognized for their commitment to patient-centered care. And just as it sounds, patient-centered care is all about you and your health! This designation is awarded by the state, and Tier 3 is actually the highest classification available!
