Becoming an established patient
Being an established patient means that you get your health care exclusively at the Culinary Health Center.
Benefits of becoming an established patient
Getting all of your health care at the Culinary Health Center allows you to get care from a single team of providers. A relationship with your primary care provider is the best way to get comprehensive, coordinated care.
- You will see the same health care team at each visit.
- You can have same-day appointments, when appropriate.
You have flexible options to receive care:
- By phone
- By video
- Or in person
- You can see staff who speak your language.
- Your providers will take time to explain things to you in a way you can understand.
You will have access to our online portal. With the portal, you can:
- Send questions to your health care provider.
- Request medicine refills.
- See your lab results.
- See all of your health records in one place.
If you go to a primary care physician outside of the Culinary Health Center, our staff will ask if you want to remain with your primary care provider, or change to the Culinary Health Center for care. You cannot switch back-and-forth.
Once you’ve chosen a primary care provider at the Culinary Health Center, we ask that you develop a relationship with your provider and not see another doctor in the network.
Reminder: A specialist is not your primary care provider.
All it takes is a phone call to become an established patient with the Culinary Health Center. Call 702-790-8000. You can call any time.
