Family care at Warren Clinic in Tulsa, OK, supports comprehensive wellness from adolescence to old age. Your primary care physician is the medical provider who coordinates your care and helps manage common illnesses while guiding health and wellness. Primary care physicians are sometimes called “gatekeepers,” because they treat most medical problems and direct patients to specialists when needed. Internists, family care doctors and pediatricians are all considered primary care providers.
Primary Care Services to Support Health and Wellness

You can rely on our family care physicians to recommend appropriate diagnostic tests or assessment screenings, like a heart stress test or mammogram screening.

- Coordination of care with other specialists and medical professionals
- Diagnosis of medical conditions
- Health education
