Chronic illness can cause severe pain and discomfort while doing even the simplest of daily tasks.

However, seeing one’s physician is vitally important—even more so for those diagnosed with chronic illness. This is why we bring the physicians to you!
Sage Primary Care brings qualified, professional primary care physicians directly into the homes of patients facing chronic illness relieving them of the discomfort that may come with traveling to the doctor’s office. Primary Care is available to all patients within current service locations who are diagnosed with a chronic illness.

Primary care can be provided in assisted living facilities, nursing homes, outpatient palliative care clinics, and other specialized clinics or in the comfort of your own home.
