A whole care team built around your needs

When you choose Patina as your primary care practice, you'll have a dedicated Patina care team that takes the time to know you and to create a care plan tailored to your goals. Your physician-led team includes a primary care practitioner and a Patina Health Champion, your "go-to" resource to help with scheduling appointments, navigating care, securing needed resources, addressing questions, and more. And we make it easy for your loved ones to be part of your care team, too.

You'll have fast, convenient access to the care you need right at home — through virtual care and in-person visits when needed. No more travel or sitting in crowded waiting rooms. We address your total health and well-being, and take on the legwork to make life easier. All at no additional cost to you.
