Our residents

At Plaza Primary Care and Geriatrics, we believe strongly in fostering the development of new doctors. When our physicians train residents, it helps keep us on our toes and up-to-date with current medicine. The residents who practice in our clinic are hand-selected by our team, and we consider them Junior Associates. This means that when you visit your primary doctor, you may also be seen by one of our residents, who will be supervised by your doctor. If you have questions about the program or what this means for your care, please don't hesitate to ask.
