SMMC PrimeCare Physicians is a multi-specialty group practice started in 1996 as PrimeCare Physician Associates by a group of local physicians in response to rapid changes in health care. Their goal was to preserve the quality of the personal relationship between patient and doctor. Our focus remains the same today.
PrimeCare Physician Associates became part of the Southern Maine Medical Center family as SMMC PrimeCare Physicians in October 2008. Today, SMMC PrimeCare Physicians has more than 60 physicians trained in the following specialties (learn more in the Specialties section):
We’re never too far from your home. PrimeCare offices are located throughout southern Maine, including Biddeford, Kennebunk, Old Orchard Beach and Saco. Read more in the Locations section.
If you need us to call in a prescription renewal, please allow at least 24-hours notice. Our staff will need to know the name of the medication, the strength, the amount you take and the name of the pharmacy. Please call the office during regular business hours (these may vary slightly from office to office, so please check with your Primary Care physician).
Preparing For Your Visit
We see patients by appointment only. Please call in advance to set up an appointment, and be sure to arrive on time. If this is your first visit, please arrive 15 minutes early to complete paperwork. Please bring an up-to-date insurance card and a complete list of current medications with you to each appointment. If you are unable to keep your appointment, please notify us 24 hours in advance. This allows us to see another patient in need of care. We also try to allow some flexibility in our scheduling to minimize your wait. When emergencies make delays unavoidable, we greatly appreciate your understanding.
The confidentiality of your health care information is important to us. We will ask for your written authorization before disclosing health information to a third party such as an insurance company or an attorney.
Every attempt will he made to relay information directly to you. However, if we are unable to contact you, we may leave an appointment reminder or message to call our office on your voice mail or with a family member.
