Like eating well and staying active, seeing a primary care provider regularly is an important part of your health maintenance. People who visit their primary care provider regularly have better health outcomes, lower death rates and lower health care costs than people who don’t, according to the American Academy of Family Physicians.
The Affordable Care Act requires most health plans to cover preventative health services at no cost to you. These services include many health screenings and immunizations. Your primary care provider serves as your guide to accessing many of these benefits.
Astoria Primary Care is conveniently located in the Park Medical Building, across from Columbia Memorial Hospital.

Q: What is your policy on rescheduling and cancellations? click to open
A: If you arrive more than 10 minutes after your scheduled appointment time, you may be asked to reschedule, as the remaining time reserved for you will not be sufficient for the provider to address your needs. If you need to cancel your appointment, please do so at least 24 hours before your scheduled appointment time.
Q: How will I learn the results of my test? click to open
A: Most results will be sent by mail within 7-10 business days. Any results requiring immediate attention will be communicated by phone, or in some cases, by a follow-up appointment. All results are provided after the provider receives the final report, which may take a week or more for some tests. If you’ve not heard from us within seven business days, you may call our clinic for the status of your results. Please note that results can only be given directly to the patient or authorized representative after the provider has reviewed them. If you would like to authorize anyone other than yourself to have access to your medical information, we will provide a release of information form for you to complete.
Q: How do I get my prescription refilled? click to open
A: Please contact your pharmacy to request a refill of your medications. Refills are provided within 72 business hours of the request.
