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 and naturopaths. It is important to have an established PCP whom you see for regular check-ups and illnesses.

Integrated Healthcare

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, Jane Godfrey, Ph.D., LCSW, and Eric Blakeley, LCSW.

We have also recently partnered with Whole Body Health Physical Therapy, and twice a week Hands On Medicine patients will be able to schedule a physical therapy appointment with Kara Schuft, PT, DPT here at Hands On Medicine.

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!
