A new spirit of service has arrived this spring at the Primary & Immediate Care (PIC) practice at ColumbiaDoctors Midtown. In addition to offering comprehensive primary care for adults during its regular weekday hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., the PIC practice has extended its clinical hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and is open for business on the first Saturday of each month from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The PIC practice has established an excellent record of fulfilling patient appointment requests, and staff proactively address all physician or patient concerns. Physicians who refer patients to the practice receive timely feedback on their patients’ visits by accessing the electronic medical record via the CROWN database.

Staffed by the Columbia Advanced Practice Nurse Associates, the faculty practice of the Columbia University School of Nursing, the PIC practice treats chronic conditions and provides extensive annual preventive examinations, women’s health examinations, and travel medicine services.  Providers also focus on preventive care and patient education.
