For Mercy, caring for you and your family is a team effort. Your Mercy Clinic primary care physician, working as your "health quarterback", coordinates your care with a range of specialists and advanced practitioners. Below is a reference guide for who they are and what they do.
When you visit a Mercy hospital or clinic, you may be seen by one of our qualified advanced practitioners. They are highly trained professionals who are licensed to treat patients and work under the supervision of a physician. Most have completed graduate or master’s level education. They are qualified to examine you and provide treatment.
