At One Medical, our entire team is focused on you and your care. While all our medical providers have different backgrounds, we work seamlessly together as a team. All our primary care providers can make diagnoses, order tests, prescribe medications, refer to specialists, manage chronic conditions, and provide counseling on prevention and wellness.
