Primary Care Provider

A Primary Care Provider (PCP), also known as a general practitioner, is the main health care provider for non-emergent situations.  The role of your PCP is to identify and treat common medical conditions or illnesses, provide preventative care including physical exams, and teach healthy lifestyle choices. At Sepulveda & Associates, we believe that each patient deserves compassionate care, in a safe and comfortable environment.  For medical problems that are urgent we will assess and direct you to the best place for that care, making referrals to medical specialists as necessary.
