Primary Care

On-Campus Primary Care

Outpatient care is available at ECMC's main campus on Grider Street. ECMC's ambulatory care program accepts most major insurances and is also a comprehensive teaching program.

Adult Care

Everyone needs a primary care physician. Your primary care physician becomes familiar with all aspects of your care and can provide better diagnoses and treatment, preventive care routines (such as annual exams) and referrals to specialists. Choose one of the primary care physicians at ECMC's Primary Health/Internal Medicine Center. Your primary care physician should be your first contact for illnesses, injuries and preventive care. Call (716) 898-3152 to make an appointment or for more information.
