As part of a university, we're constantly studying how to improve health care. So we know just how crucial it is to understand your perspective and concerns — as well as your symptoms.

Your medical home

We use a model of care called the patient-centered medical home. It's an approach that focuses on listening, shared decision-making with you, and helpful communication and coordination among all of your health care providers.

All UC Davis Health primary care clinics are designated as Patient-Centered Medical Homes by the nonprofit National Committee for Quality Assurance.


Prevention and wellness

We use preventive care to keep you as healthy as possible in a proactive way. Whether your priority is boosting your immune system, reducing stress, staying active or managing a chronic condition, we're here to help.

We also offer programs and resources to help support and improve your quality of life.

Convenience for busy lives

Most of our primary care offices have on-site specialty care, imaging (such as x-rays), and labs. Same- and next-day urgent care appointments are available, as well as video visits for select kinds of appointments.

Our MyUCDavisHealth app and web portal also offer a video express care service, online scheduling, messaging with your care team, test results, and more.
