A Medical Group is a group of healthcare professionals that work together to take care of patients. The providers in a medical group share medical records and billing systems, and contract with insurance companies as an organization. This allows them to focus on their patients and reduces the time they spend on paperwork.
WWMG is a locally owned and independent medical group comprised of primary care doctors, specialists, nurses, therapists, psychologists, physician assistants, and other caregivers who provide integrated health care to their patients. This model of healthcare delivery is designed to improve efficiency, enhance patient satisfaction and provide better access to care.
When you have a health problem, your primary care doctor or other specialist may be the first person you go to. Your PCP is responsible for taking your medical history, prescribing your medications and referring you to other doctors, including specialists, as needed.
However, the type of health care you receive can vary significantly depending on the type of medical group you choose to be a part of. This is why it’s important to find a medical group you can trust to be responsive to your needs and the best fit for your personal medical goals.
