Ever heard the saying ‘It takes a village to raise a child.’? Well, we believe it takes a team to deliver the best primary care possible. At Iora, it’s not just about coming in to see the provider; at Iora, you get a full team and you, the patient, are the Team Captain. And, here are your teammates who work alongside you on your health care journey:
Each time you come into the practice, you are welcomed by one of our Operations Assistants. They also help with answering phones, scheduling appointments, medication refills, specialists appointments, paperwork and more, depending on your needs!
Your Primary Care Provider (PCP)
At Iora, your PCP could be a doctor or nurse practitioner. Your PCP is responsible for providing you with your primary health care and overseeing any care you receive outside of our walls. They like to get to know you as a person, and not just a patient, including what’s important to you and any medical issues you face. Your PCP can diagnose, treat and prescribe.
Your Health Coach
Your Health Coach will help you get the most of your visits and help you establish and work toward your health goals. Your Health Coach will support you and connect you to resources available to you both here at the practice and in our community.
Behavioral Health Specialist
When needed, the Behavioral Health Specialist offers assistance if habits, behaviors, stress, worry or emotional concerns are interfering with your daily life or overall health. They work with you and your care team to evaluate the mind-body-behavior connection and provide solution-focused interventions.
The Team Nurse helps with patient assessment and care, clinical advice, blood draws, treatments, assisting providers with procedures, and much more. The Nurse also helps you understand medications, new diagnoses, and lab results.
