Information for New Patients
St. Joseph's Physicians is an affiliate of St. Joseph's Hospital Health Center. Our mission is simple: to be your healthcare connection at every stage of your life.
St. Joseph's Physicians consists of seamlessly integrated practice areas and complementary ancillary services with convenient locations across Central New York.
Our integrated approach links the physician with the St. Joseph's Hospital Health System of services to ensure that our patients receive the highest quality of medical care—all under one system. The "broader system" is the full spectrum of care from the primary physician's office, to the specialist's office, to the hospital and its associated services.
St. Joseph's Physicians practice areas include:
Family Medicine: The cornerstone of our practice, Family Medicine is comprised of nearly 70 providers dedicated to developing ongoing medical relationships with patients and playing a central role in their lifelong health and wellness.
Internal Medicine: Our Internal Medicine providers specialize in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease in adults. Our internists not only provide primary care such routine physicals, but also are trained to solve diagnostic problems and manage chronic conditions.
Urgent Care: Patients do not always get sick during normal business hours. Sometimes their conditions cannot wait until morning, but they don't warrant a visit to the emergency room. That's where Urgent Care fits in. Our two Urgent Care locations treat routine medical conditions and are open in the evening and on weekends. What sets St. Joseph Physicians' Urgent Care apart from a typical walk-in clinic is the availability of board certified physicians, registered nurses (RN) and licensed practical nurses (LPN), along with access to on-site ancillary services such as X-ray and laboratory testing.
Surgical Services: For more than 25 years, St. Joseph's Physicians surgeons have provided our patients with excellence in both inpatient and outpatient surgical procedures. Formerly known as Upstate Surgical Group, the premier general surgery group at St. Joseph's Hospital Health Center was acquired by the hospital in September 2013. Each doctor brings an area of proficiency and unique specialties to the group. And with every surgery, we care for our patients with understanding and compassion.
The availability of advanced ancillary services is one of the greatest distinguishing characteristics of St. Joseph's Physicians. Our patients have access to a full-service laboratory, advanced radiology services including x-ray, CT, MRI, and access to a network of specialists. For many of our patients, they are able to obtain the necessary medical services within our practice or location.
