Our Patient Care Coordinators
As a Patient Centered Medical Home, McCook Clinic employs Patient Care Coordinators to help our patients stay healthy. Patient Care Coordinators help to ensure you are scheduled for important tests and screenings, answer questions about medicines you are taking and relay important information back to your doctor. One of our Patient Care Coordinators may call you after or between visits to remind you about tests and screenings. They are here for you!
