At AAPHC, we strive to provide comprehensive, coordinated, and continuous care to all who access our services. Did you know that all qualifying medical offices operated by AAPHC are recognized as a Level III Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) by the National Center for Quality Assurance (NCQA)? NCQA offers three levels of PCMH recognition with Level III being the highest level. As a Level III PCMH, AAPHC is committed to continuously raising the quality of care within our practices, while also lowering our patients health care costs.
Our health care teams are comprised of physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and nurse midwives. Assisting these providers are social services staff members, clinical staff members, laboratory personnel, and business office professionals. Most medical problems can be handled at our offices, but if a specialist is needed, an appointment will be made for you as a referral from your physician. In addition, our physicians also provide long-term care at Albany Health Care, Palmyra Nursing Home, Lee County Health Care and Dawson Manor.
And did you know that AAPHC offers after hours coverage to our patients? That's right! A physician is always available by phone after hours for both adults and children. He/she may be reached by calling the number of the office at which the patient is seen. All phones are forwarded to an answering service at the close of each business day, on weekends, and holidays. Our goal is to always provide access, and even expand access, to your provider so you always can reach AAPHC when you need us most!
When you visit an AAPHC office, you can trust that you'll be well cared for by our team. Always.
