Why select your Mid Dakota Clinic Primary Clinician on MyMedicare.gov?

Your Mid Dakota Clinic primary clinician is the quarterback of your health — the center for
everything related to your well-being. This means your Mid Dakota Clinic primary clinician becomes an expert in you and your health goals, helping you navigate the health system, translate test results, and work with specialists to make sure you can maximize your health and quality of life. Your Mid Dakota Clinic primary clinician is your partner and biggest health advocate — making sure you get better and more personalized care leading to improved health, lower cost, and higher satisfaction.

By choosing a Mid Dakota Clinic primary clinician, you believe that practitioner is responsible for providing and coordinating your health care. Your choice will allow your Mid Dakota Clinic primary clinician to have access to more tools or services to facilitate high-quality patient-centered care for you that can improve your health care and lead to better results.
