Primary Care Physician and Baby

Choosing a Primary Care Physician

Choosing a primary care physician is one of the most important decisions you will make when you move to the area. Your selection will impact the health and well-being of you and your family. In southeastern Wisconsin, most physicians are affiliated with one of the region's integrated health systems, so when you select a physician you are selecting a health system as well.

Health systems have web-based tools (including videos) that can help you find and evaluate physicians (please see health system listings below for website information)

  • The Wisconsin Collaborative on Healthcare Quality wchq.org provides quality measurements on clinics, physician groups and health systems.
