Step 2: Get regular screenings.
Discuss preventive care screenings with your doctor. He or she will consider your age, health conditions and medical history to determine an appropriate screening schedule for you. You may also get preventive care reminders from Hill Physicians, because your medical group and your doctor work together to make sure you receive regular screenings.
Step 3: Know Your Hospital and Urgent Care Options.
Talk to your primary care physician (PCP) about your hospital preferences. Your PCP will have privledges at various hospitals, and may also refer you to specialists who use additional hospitals. Hill Physicians Medical Group has agreements with more than three dozen exceptional hospitals across Northern California, including great choices near you.
For added convenience, there are many Urgent Care Centers in our network. You may use these for evening and weekend services if your primary care physician is not available and you feel you need immediate attention.
*If you feel you are experiencing a life-threatening medical or psychological emergency, call 911 immediately.
Step 4: Sign Up for our "Talk to Your Doctor" Service.
Many of Hill Physicians’ practices use our “Talk To Your Doctor” service through RelayHealth. This free, secure service allows you to request appointments, ask routine questions, request prescription refills and view many lab tests online.
