First Stop for Health Care

Berks Community Health Center offers your entire family primary and preventive health care services. Primary care is your first stop for health care. Why? Because your Primary Care Provider (PCP) and their whole medical team get to know you. They are your first contact and main point of contact for all continuing care. You become a very important member of the health care team, where everyone is dedicated to improving and maintaining your good health.

Primary care is the day-to-day healthcare given by one of our board-certified family physicians or nurse practitioners.  As your PCP, he or she promotes effective communication with you and encourages you to be an active partner in your health care.

Primary care includes diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic illnesses, health promotion and education, disease prevention, health maintenance, counseling, and coordination with specialists. Disease prevention, including vaccinations and screenings, is very important, because it is aimed at preventing diseases from happening, as opposed to treating diseases that already exist.
