Primary Care Services

CHCNC offers comprehensive primary care services. Our primary care providers treat acute and chronic medical problems for men, women and children. Foot care services are also available. Patients establish care with their own primary care physician, PA or nurse practitioner to provide continuity of care.

Our goal is to provide up-to-date diagnosis and treatment of acute medical problems and coordinated, compassionate care of chronic medical conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, thyroid disease, and arthritis. With our comprehensive health care, we can provide you and your family with services and information to help you stay healthy. If we do not have a service you need, our primary care providers and the clinic team can also refer you to a specialist. By using our health center's services to manage any chronic medical conditions or diagnosis and treatment of acute medical problems, many patients can avoid costly emergency room visits.

If you become ill and require hospitalization, Dr. Andrew Williams, our Medical Director, provides inpatient medical care at Canton-Potsdam Hospital where he is a member of the Department of Medicine.

For patients who are too ill to travel or are receiving Hospice care services, home visits can be arranged on a case-by-case basis.

We offer cancer screenings for the following:

  • Breast Cancer through mammograms and clinical breast exams
  • Cervical Cancer through pap tests and pelvic exams
  • Colorectal Cancer through a fecal occult blood test or a fecal immunochemical test kit

* Primary care services are offered at our St. Lawrence County sites in Canton and Gouverneur as well as in Franklin County at our Malone practice.
