Everyone Needs a Primary Care Provider
Many people, especially those in good health, often believe they don’t need a primary care provider. However, the relationship you build with your primary care provider now ensures that you will have a medical professional who is familiar with your medical history later – when problems do come up. In addition, this provider can help you make sure you take the necessary steps to keep yourself as healthy as possible, from screenings to vaccinations, or to help prevent existing conditions from becoming worse.
Baystate Medical Practices offers a group of primary care providers – including doctors, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants – who care for your total well-being, from wellness visits, to illness and chronic health conditions.
We’ll partner with you to help you lead a healthier life through regular checkups, proper diet, exercise, and medical advice. We’ll work with you to manage any chronic medical conditions, and address small issues before they become large ones. We offer both adult and pediatric primary care.

Should a health condition arise that requires care from a specialist, your primary care provider will guide and coordinate all aspects of your care, many of which are available from the specialty providers within Baystate Health.
