When you are not feeling well...

No one knows you like your primary care provider

Bluffton Hospital provides this feature on the importance of primary care providers (PCP). If you don't already have a PCP call the Blanchard Valley Medical Provider Physician Referral Line at 419-422.APPT (2778).

When you are not feeling well, it is important to contact your primary care provider (PCP) for guidance first.

This is the best place to receive care for common illnesses, minor injuries or routine wellness checks. Your PCP can be your partner in managing your health over a period of time, making chronic conditions less symptomatic.
