At Physicians Medical Group of San Jose, we believe in the philosophy of preventive medicine. Our goal is to keep the people in our community healthy.
We encourage a healthy life style, diet, and exercise. In addition, we believe all adults and children should follow recommended preventative guidelines including doctor’s visits and immunizations.
When you are not feeling well or if you have an ongoing medical condition, see your Primary Care Physician (PCP). He or she is responsible for coordinating all of your health care needs, including specialist referrals, emergency and urgent services, and hospitalization.
If you become unexpectedly ill and require immediate medical attention, we encourage you to call your PCP. Your PCP or an on-call physician is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Rather than wait in an emergency room and be cared for by a physician who does not know your medical history, your physician prefers that you call his or her office.
If you are unable to reach your physician and need immediate care for an urgent medical problem, your doctor may recommend that you go to one of our after hours offices, or to one of our urgent care centers.
