Primary Care

COVID-19 Service Changes
Due to the coronavirus outbreak, we've had to postpone some appointments, change some clinic services, and restrict visitors.

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.

When you choose UVA primary care, you don’t just get excellent care and personal attention for routine and basic needs. You also get access to:

  • Top specialists
