About Our Team

Listening to LungsMedical Directors

ProHealth Express Care is overseen by a physician who is board certified in emergency medicine. Every ProHealth Express Care center is supervised by a Medical Director and staffed by licensed physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants. Many of the providers you see in our Express Care centers also work in ProHealth’s primary care practices.
