Primary Care

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.

Coronavirus: Changes

We've taken several steps to protect your health and the health of our providers and staff. That includes rescheduling some clinic appointments and restricting how many visitors you bring with you.

Call your clinic before heading out for care. Read about our response to the coronavirus (COVID-19).
