My primary has a care coordinator working for our primary and two other doctors which gives us her direct number for questions on problems that we do not have a direct staffing number on the different specialist I have when trying to contact them rather going to the general clinic number. The care coordination with the primary doctor staff is one of the best services my wife and I depend on with the Clinic.
