Primary Care Northside

The physicians at Primary Care Northside have been serving patients in Pittsburgh and surrounding communities for over 20 years. We offer a wide range of services, to patients 16 years and older, including physicals, acute care, cancer screening and minor procedures. Located in the Allegheny Professional Building next to Allegheny General Hospital, we are easily accessible via public transportation and have parking in the adjacent garage.

We strive to provide patients with the highest quality medical care in a compassionate and professional manner. We look forward to serving your healthcare needs.

NCQA (National Committee for Quality Assurance) works with large employers, policy makers, doctors, patients and health plans to decide what is important, how to measure it and how to promote improvement. Physician practices who have met stringent criteria measuring health plan performance are given three-year certification and also receive financial rewards depending on their level of program attainment.


Developed by NCQA and the American Diabetes Association, this program utilizes evidence-based measures to recognize physicians who provide excellent care to their diabetic patients.

Services provided include:

  • Complete physicals
  • Routine office visits
  • Sick office visits
  • Inpatient care and consultation
  • Immunizations
  • Diabetic care and education
  • Other chronic physical conditions
