No one cares more about your health than all of us here at St. Joe's. We want you to take care of yourself. Make an appointment to see your family doctor. If you don't currently have one that you see on a regular basis, you're not alone. Not many people do. The changing face of medicine has changed the way that doctors see patients and the way that patients choose doctors.
We can help. St. Joseph Mercy Oakland (SJMO) continues to make available the best primary care physicians to our patients, including, but not limited to, your choice of traditional family doctors.
To find an SJMO primary care physician near you, please call our referral line at 800-372-6094.
