Primary Care

All-Inclusive Care for the Whole Family

St. Lawrence Health is committed to providing patients of all ages with exceptional, personalized care across St. Lawrence County, including Canton, Gouverneur, Massena, and Potsdam, NY. By using a primary care provider affiliated with St. Lawrence Health, you have access to providers through a full continuum of care, from routine checkups to specialized visits, with personalized measures put in place to keep you and your family safe and healthy.

The Importance of Having a Primary Care Provider

Having a dedicated primary care provider allows you to get consistent care from a professional who understands your medical history. Because a primary care provider is familiar with your medical needs, abnormalities will be caught more quickly, allowing for more efficient treatment. Primary care and checkups allow you to undergo routine checks to monitor risk for heart disease, cancers, stroke, and other critical ailments.

What Is Considered Part of Primary Care?
