Boynton Health ServiceBoynton Health Service

East Bank Clinic

Primary Care Clinic

Primary Care visits at Boynton Health Service are similar to primary care visits you may have had at your home town clinic, with one difference—we specialize in college health. Boynton’s Primary Care Clinic is a full-service medical clinic, able to treat all acute and chronic illnesses.

Coordination of Care

Patients who establish a relationship with one of Boynton’s Primary Care Clinic providers will discover that treatment is more efficient, accessibility is improved, and follow-up is easier.

The Primary Care Clinic should be your first stop for general health issues and questions. It offers all the general services of Boynton’s specialty clinics and offers internal and external referrals if specialized treatment is required. For instance, Primary Care is a great starting place for patients concerned about mental health issues such as insomnia, depression, or anxiety; if more in-depth services are needed, patients can receive referrals to the Mental Health Clinic. Your Primary Care Provider can also coordinate your care and communicate directly with others service areas within the clinic.

Call 612-625-3222 to make an appointment for any health concern or for your first annual checkup to establish care with one of our Primary Care Providers.
