As senior care specialists, we understand the needs of our patients. Primary Care Plus doctors, nurses and staff know how to treat the health challenges that arise with aging. Because we focus on seniors, our doctors see about half of the patients of a typical primary care doctor. This allows more time at every appointment to get to know the patient, to understand individual health goals and to provide effective and highly personalized health care at every opportunity. Primary Care Plus is dedicated to patient health through continuity of care. As a new member of the UnitedHealth Group family of companies, Primary Care Plus is expanding its impact and sense of contribution. Join us and start doing your life's best work.(sm)
