Family Practice Primary Care Doctor New Jersey

Family physicians at Summit Medical Group treat all aspects of adult health. In addition to diagnosing and treating a range of illnesses and conditions, your family doctor can provide routine health checkups and counseling. He or she can help you make healthy lifestyle choices, improve and maintain your health, and prevent illness. If you have health issues that require a specialist’s care, your primary care general practitioner can recommend a doctor who has the expertise you need.

By developing long-term relationships with their patients, our primary care physicians are uniquely positioned to answer many questions about your health, create personal treatment plans based on your past and current health, and advise you about your risk factors. Research shows that patients who have an ongoing relationship with their general practitioner have better overall health, lower death rates, and lower health care costs.

Our family doctors often collaborate with other health care professionals to ensure that you receive the best care possible.

Federal Motor Carrier and Safety Administration-certified Physical Exams

Summit Medical Group now has practitioners certified by the Federal Motor Carrier and Safety Administration (FMCSA) to offer physical exams for people getting a commercial driver's license. Insurance does not cover the cost of the exam. Patients must pay out of pocket for the exam upon service. Providers who offer the FMCSA-certified physical cannot act as a primary care practitioner and the FMCSA exam cannot be used to replace a routine physical examination. If you would like an FMCSA-certified physical exam, please ask your physician to refer you to an FMCSA-certified practitioner.
