Porter Primary Care
At CHPG Primary Care Porter, we understand that your relationship with your physician is important. Our skilled clinical team believes in building a trusting and collaborative connection with each of our patients. Patients and their families can rest assured knowing they have a skilled, experienced and caring medical team providing their care. We take great joy in caring for your family.
Our primary care team is committed to giving the same care when it comes to family medicine, women’s services and internal medicine. Personalized services and treatment plans based on your family’s health history play a central role in how we support your optimal wellness. As primary care physicians, we not only treat disease — we also help prevent it. When we identify a medical problem early, it is often considerably easier to treat, leading to a significantly better outcome.

Primary Care First
We are Participating in a New Program to Enhance Your Care: Primary Care First
Primary Care First is an innovative healthcare payment program that aims to improve our patients’ care experience by reducing administrative burdens, so our team can spend more time with you.
Giving doctors extra support to help you get better care
Our goal has always been to provide you with the highest quality of care. Through Primary Care First, we will receive additional resources from Medicare and other health insurance companies to help us enhance our work and provide you the best quality, patient-centered care.
More information for patients with original Medicare
As part of this program, Medicare will start sharing some of your personal health information with us, such as when you receive care at hospitals, emergency departments, and specialist offices. This will help provide us with a more complete picture of your health and allow us to better coordinate your care.
If you want to stop Medicare from sharing this information, you should call
1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227). TTY users should call 1-877-486-2048.
Your Medicare benefits are not changing, and this program is only intended to enhance the healthcare you receive at our location You still have the right to use or visit any doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare, at any time. Your doctor may continue to recommend that you see particular doctors for your specific health needs, but it is always your choice which doctors you use or hospital you visit.
If you have questions or concerns, you can call your doctor, or bring it up at your next appointment.
