Primary care

We provide the home you need for your care. You can choose from an extensive list of primary care physicians (PCPs) right in your community, including specialists in pediatrics, family medicine and internal medicine. We help people of all ages and accept many insurance plans.

Your primary care doctor provides checkups and screenings, as well as treatment of common illnesses and injuries. If you have additional care needs, your doctor can direct you to the right location and make referrals to a wide variety of other Geisinger specialists.

Why choose Geisinger for your primary care?

  • Knowledge and dedication: All Geisinger primary care physicians hold board certification, as do our physician assistants and nurse practitioners. They undergo national testing of their skills and continue to learn and improve. They also dedicate themselves to your care. Our staff turnover rate is among the country’s lowest, allowing you to develop a lasting healthcare relationship.
  • Convenience and accessibility: With primary care sites across Pennsylvania, you can choose the Geisinger location best suited to your needs. Many locations offer night and Saturday hours, or partner with nearby Geisinger offices that do. We also offer same- or next-day appointments when possible. For more immediate needs, you can visit Geisinger urgent care. We accept Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP and many other participating insurance plans.
  • Specialized care: We help you find the right primary care physician, including those who specialize in geriatrics or women’s health. We offer specialty care for chronic disease management. You can select from internal medicine if you are an adult, pediatrics for your child or family medicine for everyone. Once you choose Geisinger, we help you find additional specialists you may need, with services often available at your primary care office. Learn more about our primary care services.
  • Coordination: With Geisinger, you can easily find care while avoiding duplicate tests and unnecessary procedures. Our electronic medical record keeps your history accessible wherever you go, updating your primary care physician when you see other specialists or visit urgent care. At our hospitals, doctors called hospitalists oversee your care and closely coordinate with your primary care doctor. With the MyGeisinger web portal, you can make appointments and see key information. You can use your computer or smartphone.
