your primary care physician... your guide to a healthy life

For your annual checkup and your annual flu shot, for a good remedy for a sore throat and good advice for shedding a few pounds, your family doctor is there for you.

At Jefferson Regional Medical Center, we have more than 90 reasons why you should put your trust in your family doctor. That’s how many primary care physicians, or PCPs, are conveniently located close to your home and ready to care for you and your family.

Preventative Services Covered Under Affordable Care Act

If you’ve been putting off important screenings because you feel you can’t afford them, you should know that prevention is affordable and accessible for all Americans under the Affordable Care Act. The health insurance reform legislation passed by Congress and signed into law by President Obama on March 23, 2010 requires health plans to cover recommended preventive services by eliminating cost sharing.
