Sometimes a visit to the emergency room can result in follow up care with a family physician or a primary care physician (PCP). Emergency patients who do not have PCPs often end up back in emergency rooms with problems that could have been prevented with follow-up care.
If you don’t have a physician, Banner Health can help you find one.
In the greater Phoenix area, under a partnership with My Health Direct, Banner staff can make appointments for you with primary care physicians while you are still in the Banner emergency department.
This service can help you avoid making a costly return trip to the emergency room.
Connecting you with PCPs can improve your care and make it more efficient and less costly.
You can also find a Banner Health physician online.
