Phoenix Lightrail - HonorHealth Medical Group - Keeping Phoenix healthy

Phoenix, Arizona, otherwise known the Valley of the Sun, has more than 1.4 million residents and ranks as the nation's sixth most populous city. Spanning more than 500 square miles, it's geographically one of the largest cities in the country, even exceeding Los Angeles in size. Phoenix also is considered a destination for quality higher education, business and healthcare.

In fact, Phoenix is a leader in patient care, medical research and innovation. HonorHealth, which has five acute-care hospitals, extensive outpatient services, immediate/urgent care facilities, and close to 40 primary care centers, including 14 in Phoenix, is a key player when it comes to keeping Phoenicians healthy.

Blanketing Phoenix in primary care coverage

HonorHealth Medical Group's primary care doctors in Phoenix are united by a commitment to making healthy personal for every patient, ranging from newborns to seniors and everyone in between.

Physicians, nurse practitioners and other medical experts across all of HonorHealth Medical Group’s conveniently located Phoenix primary care locations diagnose and treat everything from cold, flu and strep throat, to general aches and pains, minor injuries and allergies. These professionals also can:

  • Manage chronic conditions such as diabetes, asthma and high blood pressure.
  • Administer childhood vaccines and annual immunizations like flu shots.
  • Create wellness plans.
  • Conduct routine physical exams, including sports physicals for youth activities.

Your doctor can perform a comprehensive medication review to ensure there are no potential drug interactions among vitamins, supplements and medications that may be prescribed to you by different physicians such as specialists, dentists and naturopaths.

To make your office visit as convenient as possible, some HonorHealth Medical Group primary care physicians offer onsite lab and/or medical imaging testing. The rest of the primary care offices have lab techs for blood draws and are located close to HonorHealth medical centers or outside lab and imaging service providers.

Electronic health record

HonorHealth Medical Group's robust network of primary care physicians is connected via one electronic health record system. So if you see a doctor near your home in Arcadia, Moon Valley, Tramonto or elsewhere in Phoenix and later need to follow up with a provider at a location near your job or school, your comprehensive health record is up to date and accessible to all HonorHealth Medical Group physicians.

This provides greater continuity of care and collaboration among the medical experts serving you.

Information collected and stored in HonorHealth's secure electronic health record system ranges from lab work, X-rays and other test results, to prescriptions and personal wellness plans. Your health record also includes notes and records related to visits you've made to an HonorHealth immediate care center, an emergency center such as HonorHealth Sonoran Health and Emergency Center, or HonorHealth Deer Valley Medical Center and HonorHealth John C. Lincoln Medical Center.
