Primary Care

UofL Health offers primary care to help guide your wellness journey.

Establishing a relationship with a primary care provider is an essential part of your health care routine. Your provider becomes familiar with your personal medical history, family medical history and your medication list. You will learn about preventative care, get treated for acute illness quickly, and be referred to the specialists you need when you need them.

Learn more about Primary Care and Family Medicine below. Then call 502.589.3027 to request an appointment. You can also request an appointment online or visit our Provider Directory to find a physician.

Importance of a Primary Care Provider

Family physicians provide both immediate and routine, day-to-day health care services, including diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic illnesses for patients of all ages. Family physicians also provide preventive and health maintenance services, gynecological services, minor surgery and urgent care.

Managing Your Health Care Needs

Your primary care physician is your personal health advocate and helps you manage your health care. Not only do primary care providers specialize in diagnosing and managing a wide range of health issues, they also teach you about prevention and wellness. Establishing a long-term relationship with your primary care provider gives your doctor the opportunity to become familiar with your medical history, which can be invaluable during a health crisis.

You should see your primary care provider for: 

  • Arranging referrals to specialists
  • General health issues
  • Injuries
  • Preventive health and wellness information, such as immunizations
  • Routine checkups or physicals
