Primary Care Services

Your child’s health care needs start here. At the University of Texas Medical Branch, our highly trained and experienced primary care physicians (PCP) are here for you. Your child’s PCP provides the first point of contact for healthcare and medical information. A PCP is knowledgeable about a patient’s health history which positions them to determine if further medical attention is necessary.
