Local Healthcare

It is important for you and your family members to have a medical home – a doctor whom you consider your own and you go to for all of your health care.  One who can take care of your preventive health needs as well as your needs when you are sick, and can refer you on to other providers as needed.

We provide lists of doctors and dentists in Essex County and the surrounding region to help you and your family find a medical home.  These lists are for information only.  We do not endorse any specific provider or provider group.
