Dana Hertz got primary and specialty care in one stop

Blue Care Network primary care physicians aren't just generalists. They can also provide many specialized services in their offices. Dancer Dana Hertz can vouch for that.

When Dana visited her primary care physician while home from a cruise ship dance assignment, he diagnosed and treated her foot injury on the spot. That's because Dana's primary care physician is also a trained sports medicine specialist. The other professionals in his group contributed to Dana's treatment. Dana appreciated the convenience of not having to visit more than one doctor's office.

"I didn't need a referral," said Dana. "And I didn't need to make an appointment with another doctor. They took X-rays on the spot. Once my doctor diagnosed the injury, a trainer showed me how to tape it so I could continue dancing. He also recommended that I get arch supports for my street shoes."

For 23-year-old Dana, who's been working two part-time jobs and keeping up with her dancing, getting her injury taken care of immediately was the best thing that could have happened. She was able to dance without pain and make sure that she was at top form so she'd be ready for another assignment from the cruise line.

Because Blue Care Network primary care physicians are trained to provide comprehensive care, they can provide many services in their offices. Many are also associated with physician groups that include specialists, making it even easier for you to get the care you need when you need it.
