A Brief Overview
Primary Care of the Treasure Coast (PCTC) is a full-service primary care medicine practice with 19 providers and around 80 staff members. We have our main office in Vero Beach, near Cleveland Clinic Indian River Hospital, and also an office in Sebastian, Florida. PCTC seeks to provide “one stop shopping”, with most commonly needed services available in our office.
PCTC has expanded hours access on Saturday mornings, for your convenience when unexpected illness occurs. We make every attempt to provide same-day appointments within the practice to any of our patients who call that day. If you do require hospitalization, our providers will care for you at Cleveland Clinic Indian River Hospital.
