San Francisco Bay Area Primary Care

One Medical Group’s Bay Area primary care doctor’s offices are conveniently located throughout San Francisco, the Peninsula, Marin and East Bay, providing an array of services at all of our locations. We offer same-day appointments, on-site lab work, and longer-than-average appointment times to make your life easier. So whether you’re in Greenbrae, Sunnyvale, Berkeley, or downtown San Francisco, we’ve got you covered. One Medical has rethought primary care by bringing together innovative medical technology, patient-focused care, and a holistic, evidence-based approach to health.


What Should I Expect From My Primary Care Team at One Medical?

We believe primary care should be the first stop in your healthcare journey; it’s where you turn for guidance and support before you get sick, before you see a specialist, and before you need to seek hospital care. Our general practitioners combine excellent customer service with an efficient use of technology to deliver high-quality, affordable service that’s designed to fit your unique needs.

As your One Medical primary care providers (PCPs), we take your well-being seriously. With an emphasis on family practice and internal medicine, we address all your essential health needs by:

  • Making prevention and wellness a priority
  • Collaborating with you to customize the best plan that suits your individual needs and goals
  • Providing a comprehensive, accurate, and secure repository for all your medical information
  • Seamlessly coordinating your care, including tests, treatments, specialist visits, and hospitalizations
  • Providing easy-to-understand, accessible advice, guidance, and insight
  • Offering cost-effective options that empower you to prioritize your health

At One Medical, we leverage the latest medical research and cutting-edge technology to offer the most comprehensive primary care available. We draw upon our team’s extensive collective experience and your personal feedback to create a truly one-of-a-kind primary care experience. From preventive medicine to integrative care, we have the tools to keep you feeling your best -- whether you’re already in good health, suffering from a minor cold, or facing a life-changing illness. Our primary care providers are your partners in cultivating and maintaining long-term health.

How is One Medical Different From Other Practices?

Our philosophy is rooted in quality care, patient-centered design, and a smart application of technology. In order to deliver the best preventive medicine, acute care, and chronic condition management, we provide our board-certified medical professionals the time and tools to make the best decisions for your health.

Each of our general practitioners places a strong emphasis on fostering patient-provider relationships based on trust and mutual understanding, taking the time to get to know you and your unique health story. Our providers want to understand how your history and lifestyle impact your overall well-being, and they’ll collaborate with you to customize a plan that fits your life and helps you achieve your goals. We aim to be your long-term health care advocates, partnering with you to manage your health issues and navigate complex medical decisions. By using diagnostic tests appropriately and avoiding overdiagnosis or unnecessary prescriptions, we empower you to make positive changes in your health and your life with newfound knowledge, awareness, support, and guidance. We stay by your side every step of the way, making sure you understand how to continue your progress once you leave the office.

And since our providers see 35% fewer patients than typical primary care providers each day, they will have more time to spend with you, ensuring that all your concerns are addressed.

Above all else, we treat you as a whole person, not just a collection of symptoms. We take all aspects of your health and lifestyle into consideration, and care for you in a holistic manner that helps you restore and maintain optimal health. In addition to the primary care services offered at all of our offices, we offer additional integrative health services at select locations in San Francisco and New York City, including acupuncture, naturopathy, mental health, and nutrition counseling. We’ll continue to add more services as we grow in order to offer the most comprehensive, effective care possible.

Do I Need to Select a Primary Care Provider (PCP)?

Although we don’t require our members to pick a PCP, we strongly recommend finding a practitioner you feel comfortable with and who can collaborate with you on important decisions in order to coordinate and optimize your long-term care.

Besides being your partner in good health, your One Medical PCP is your first point of contact for all health care needs, acting as your advocate, ally, and advisor. We’ll help you make the most informed decisions possible, and we’ll ensure a well-coordinated and thoroughly researched referral should you ever require a specialty consultation or hospitalization.

Finally, if the PCP you select doesn’t feel like the right fit, you can always switch to another practitioner -- no questions asked.

What is the Difference between Family Medicine and Internal Medicine?

The majority of One Medical’s general practitioners, including our doctors, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants, have a focus in either family medicine or internal medicine.

Family medicine providers, otherwise known as family practitioners, are considered to have the widest set of primary care skills, treating patients at every stage of life. They are trained to treat patients from birth through adulthood, and into the elderly years. At One Medical, our family practitioners see patients in adolescence and above; generally age 14 and older.

Internal medicine doctors, otherwise known as internists, focus primarily on adult and elderly patients, and are most comfortable seeing patients age 18 and older. Their training emphasizes the management of chronic, complex, or severe illnesses, particularly for patients who require hospitalization. Although they are proficient in primary care, their specialty training typically does not include obstetrics, gynecology, or pediatrics.
