About Primary Care

Finding a primary care provider is one of the most significant decisions a person can make. It is essential for patients to have a trusted provider they can turn to. At the primary care clinic at CLS Health in Webster, TX, we are proud to be that provider. When patients have a general medical concern, such as a sore throat or an upper respiratory infection that won’t go away, our primary care physicians are here to provide prompt and compassionate medical attention.

What is a Primary Care Provider?

A Primary Care Provider, or PCP, is typically a family medicine or internal medicine physician. Internal medicine physicians see patients 16 years or older, while family medicine physicians see patients starting from 2 months old. A PCP can also be a nurse practitioner (NP) or physician assistant (PA). These physicians diagnose and treat illnesses as well as provide preventive medical care. A primary care doctor is your main point of contact for healthcare in non-emergency situations.

Primary Care Services Include:

  • Annual physicals and well-patient visits
  • Flu shots and other immunizations
  • Chronic disease management
  • Urgent care appointments for acute, non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses
  • Preventive care counseling
  • Referring patients to a medical specialist when a condition requires more targeted treatment

The primary care clinic is a part of CLS Health. CLS Health is a multi-specialty medical group with over ninety providers providing comprehensive inpatient and outpatient care in Baytown, Friendswood, Webster, Pasadena, League City, and surrounding areas.
