Primary Care for Adults

Your relationship with your primary care physician makes an important difference to your positive health outcomes. Whether or not you currently see a primary care physician, or you want to find a new provider, OU Health’s primary care doctors in Oklahoma City and Tulsa offer compassionate, personalized treatment to all people of all ages. They listen to your concerns and put your well-being first.

Comprehensive Primary Care Close to Home

When you choose one of OU Health’s primary care physicians, you take the first step to connecting with the entire OU Health network of doctors and specialists in Oklahoma City, Tulsa and beyond. Your primary care doctor practices nearby in your community, knows how to treat a wide variety of conditions, injuries and illnesses, and recognizes when you need a referral to a specialist to address a specific condition or concern.

Coordinated Care for Optimal Health

If you live with a chronic condition and can benefit from ongoing monitoring or care management assistance or you experience a short-term illness like a cold or the flu, your primary care doctor welcomes you into the healthcare system, coordinates your care among all the providers or specialists you may need and helps you achieve the best possible results for your situation.
