Primary Care Specialties

  • Family Medicine

    Our family medicine doctors provide you and your family with expert, comprehensive care during all phases of life—from birth, infancy and childhood, through adolescence, to adult life and the changes each phase brings. We promote healthy lifestyles, preventive medicine and provide the highly-skilled and personalized care to each family member.

  • Internal Medicine

    Our internal medicine doctors—also called “internists” and “general internists”—see adults aged 18 and older and cover all primary health concerns except surgery and obstetrics. We provide comprehensive care focused on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of adult diseases, and are trained to solve diagnostic problems and routinely handle the management of severe chronic illnesses. We focus on the coordination of care for our patients and management of referrals to specialty colleagues, when necessary.

  • Pediatrics

    As Riley Physicians, our diverse group of pediatricians and pediatric nurse practitioners are dedicated to caring for your children's general issues and complex needs. Many of our pediatric practices offer same-day sick appointments, flexible hours for busy families and a 24-hour phone nurse for questions.

  • Internal Medicine/Pediatrics

    Our Internal Med/Peds doctors have dual board certifications in internal medicine and pediatrics. Caring for all family members, from newborns to seniors, we focus on preventive medicine and health for your entire family.

  • Women's Health

    IU Health Women’s Health includes a team of OB/GYN specialists who provide comprehensive care for women from adolescence to adulthood. As specialists, we cannot guarantee a same-day appointment but will work with you to secure the soonest possible appointment.

When you can't wait

Nothing replaces a strong relationship with your primary care doctor to keep you well. But when you need immediate attention outside of your doctor's regular office hours, IU Health provides convenient, high-quality alternatives to meet your needs anytime.

Immediate Care

IU Health Immediate Care is available when you need urgent medical care. When your doctor's office is closed, IU Health Immediate Care is available for any non-life-threatening illness or injury.

Emergency

IU Health Emergency Services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week at over a dozen locations for those unexpected injuries or symptoms that can't wait.

Choosing a PCP

Your primary care provider (PCP) is more than just a doctor to call when you're sick. Your PCP is your partner in maintaining and optimizing your health.

A number of practical factors should be considered when selecting PCPs for you and your family. Is the office location convenient for you? Do the office hours meet your needs? Does the doctor accept your insurance plan? Is he/she affiliated with your preferred hospital and other specialists?

Beyond those basic considerations, be sure that you are comfortable talking with your doctor about your needs and goals for your health. A positive, caring relationship with your primary care doctor can help you with the knowledge and tools you need to get and stay healthy.
