The Primary Care teams at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center and Dartmouth Hitchcock Clinics Heater Road continue to be challenged by the ongoing staffing crisis that is impacting nearly every healthcare organization in the region.
We currently have wait lists for new patients who want to sign up with a primary care provider at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center or our Heater Road practice. Our teams are working hard to address these staffing shortages. We understand this is frustrating and apologize for this inconvenience.
The primary care teams at Dartmouth Hitchcock Clinics Heater Road are integrated teams of providers from General Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, and Pediatrics. We provide you with a team approach so that someone is always available to assist you when your regular provider is not available.
Teams may include physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurse care coordinators, nurses, medical assistants, secretaries, pharmacists, and health coaches.
