Understanding Your Health Care Options
Access and convenience — we have you covered.
At Sharp Community Medical Group, we know that convenient access to quality health care is important to our patients. That's why we provide the most health care options of any medical group in San Diego and North County.
Your time is limited; your health care options shouldn't be.
Whether your health need is routine or immediate, you have options. Get the care you need, when and where you need it. Here's an overview of your choices as a Sharp Community patient.
Primary Care Doctor
As your partner in health, your doctor knows your wellness needs and medical history. Visit your doctor for routine and preventive care, physical exams or chronic disease monitoring; they can help you improve your health and stay healthy.
Don't have a primary care doctor? We'll help you find a doctor right in your neighborhood.
On-Demand Video and Phone Visits
HMO members can schedule an on-demand video or phone visit 24/7 with top-trained doctors who diagnose, treat and prescribe medication from the convenience of your phone, computer or tablet. Appointments can be booked Monday to Friday, 6 am to 10 pm and Saturday and Sunday, 6 am to 6 pm, 365 days a year.
For non-urgent illness and injuries, MinuteClinic® delivers convenient, affordable care. Sharp Community Medical Group members can visit a MinuteClinic for the same low copay as a primary care doctor visit. With evening and weekend hours at over 15 locations, MinuteClinics offer nurse practitioners who can diagnose, treat and write prescriptions for common illnesses and more.
Some health concerns require immediate attention by a doctor. With over 20 locations offering extended hours throughout San Diego and North County, there's an urgent care clinic near you. You can be seen right away for non-life threatening conditions like cuts and broken bones.
Should you experience a life- or limb-threatening condition or severe injuries, call 911 or go directly to your nearest emergency room.
Still not sure which health care option is right for you?
Remember, your doctor is your partner in health. Call your Sharp Community doctor to address your health concern and receive advice to get the care you need.
