Your primary care provider — or PCP — is your main healthcare provider for non-emergency situations.
UVA's primary care providers take care of the general healthcare needs of children, adults and seniors. We do regular check-ups, immunizations and screenings and provide care for illnesses and injuries. And we'll coordinate your care if you need to see a specialist for a more serious health issue.

Your Electronic Medical Record
MyChart is an electronic medical record. It lets you and your primary care provider see all your records and tests in one place: your annual exam, cholesterol test, mammogram, colonoscopy and more.
If you go to a specialist like a cardiologist or a physical therapist, that specialist can see your chart, too.
MyChart makes it simple for you to communicate with your healthcare team and for multiple UVA doctors to work together and provide you with the best — and most efficient — care possible. And you can even ask for an appointment online.
