Help you choose your doctorGreat care starts with a great doctor. We’ll talk about the kind of primary care doctor you’re looking for, from gender and languages spoken to location and age. We’ll help you choose a doctor for each member of your family: pediatricians, ob-gyns, and doctors in family practice or internal medicine. We have more than 1,700+ doctors across the region, many of whom are recognized as top doctors by reputable magazines, and they practice in our leading health system.1
Help you choose where to get care
We’ll help you find a convenient Kaiser Permanente medical center near your home, work, or school—whichever works best for you. We have 35+ locations throughout the region, each with many services under one roof, so you get the care you need in less trips.
Make your first appointment
Whether you want to see your doctor right away or wait a few a weeks, we’ll help get you on the books. We can connect you with your primary care doctor, pediatrician, ob-gyn, and more.
Transfer your prescriptions
Even while changing health plans, you won’t miss a dose. We’ll put you in touch with one of our clinical pharmacists to quickly and securely transfer your prescriptions to a Kaiser Permanente pharmacy of your choice.
Register you on kp.org
We’ll help you create your account, where you can then access all of your health information and care. On kp.org, you can email your doctor, schedule and manage appointments, order prescriptions, check test results, print vaccination records, and so much more.
