Primary care physicians (PCPs) are committed to helping you achieve and maintain good health through every stage of life by offering comprehensive services, including annual visits and screenings with a focus on disease prevention and health promotion.
PCPs also coordinate care with other specialists as needed, to make certain you get the best treatment for chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart or lung disease, or depression, for example. PCPs on the staff of South County Hospital are dedicated to providing the best possible care.
The following primary care physicians--both family medicine and internal medicine physicians--are members of the South County Medical Group (SCMG). They offer patients seamless continuity of care if a specialist or hospitalization is required. Shared electronic health records gives them the ability to quickly and easily access the information they need to give you the best possible care. Family medicine physicians care for those of all ages--from newborn to old age, while internal medicine physicians care for adults.
South County Medical Group East Greenwich and Wakefield are Patient Centered Medical Homes (PCMH). In a PCMH, the focus of the medical practice is on the entire patient and specifically on disease prevention rather than disease treatment. Despite its name, PCMHs are not “homes” but medical practices that have met specific criteria set by the National Committee for Quality Assurance.
How does a PCMH differ from a traditional primary care practice?
PCMHs coordinate all aspects of care for their patients, emphasizing the use of preventive care and regular screenings and supporting people with diabetes, depression, and other chronic diseases in new and innovative ways.
