Pediatrician Matthew Heeren, M.D., with one of his young patients at the NorthBay Center for Primary Care in Vacaville.

The NorthBay Center for Primary Care was rated sixth in the state of California for the overall quality of healthcare physicians and staff provide in its four locations in Fairfield and Vacaville.

The center topped all other local primary care providers in the annual survey of the Pacific Business Group on Health, a leading non-profit business coalition focused on improving the quality of health care while moderating costs. The group comprises a partnership of health insurance plans and consumer organizations.

When asked if they would recommend their doctor to family or friends, patients ranked NorthBay in the top 10 percent statewide. Of the 12 primary care groups reporting in Napa and Solano counties, NorthBay’s was rated the highest for overall care, the survey revealed.

While it was the top in the two-county region and sixth overall in the state, the Center for Primary Care also scored high in other areas. Patients lauded NorthBay’s physicians for being informed and up to date, for taking time with them during visits, and for giving clear instructions. The staff was ranked 13th in the state for being helpful.

The NorthBay Center for Primary Care serves patients in its four primary care locations, two in Vacaville, one in Fairfield and one in Green Valley. Patients can choose from a panel of 20 physicians backed up by three nurse practitioners, two registered nurses, four licensed vocational nurses, several medical assistants and office staff.
