Great care starts with a great doctor. We’ll talk about the kind of primary care doctor you’re looking for, from gender and languages spoken to location and age. We’ll help you choose a doctor for each member of your family: pediatricians, ob/gyns, and doctors in family practice or internal medicine. We have more than 1,500 doctors (many earn top accolades), the #1 health plan in the area, dedication to early detection and cutting-edge research, and superior individualized and evidence-based medical care delivered with compassion.*
Help you choose where to get care
When we talk about the doctor you’re looking for, we’ll also talk about the location that’s most convenient for you. There are 30 locations in the Mid-Atlantic area where our doctors’ offices are located. We’ll find one that’s close to home, work, or school – whatever works best for you.
Make your first appointment with the primary care doctor, pediatrician, and/or ob/gyn, if you need one
Whether you want to see the doctor right away to discuss your medication, or want to wait several weeks, we’ll get you on the books. You can change your doctor at any time, for any reason, for example, if you move to a new area and will be closer to a different medical center.
Transfer your prescriptions to a Kaiser Permanente pharmacy that’s convenient for you
We don’t want you to miss taking your medication while you change health plans. We’ll be sure you don’t miss a dose. We’ll put you in touch with one of our clinical pharmacists, to transfer all your medications confidently.
