    Family Practice

    Artesia General Hospital provides a full range of primary medical services to adults and children in both Artesia and Carlsbad. Your primary care provider is the first person you turn to when you need medical care. That’s why it is important to have a provider who knows you and your medical history—a person you can trust to take care of you when you are sick or injured, and someone to be your trusted partner in helping you maintain wellness and a healthy lifestyle.

    From seniors to pediatrics, we have the experience and expertise to help patients live healthier lives. Our team of skilled professionals is comprised of board-certified Family Practice physicians Joe P. Salgado, MD and JoAnn B. Couch, MD.

    Assisting Dr. Salgado in the Memorial Family Practice are a talented team of advanced practitioners who work tirelessly with our nurses and support staff to assist you or your family member.

    Artesia Healthcare Professionals Family Practice in Carlsbad is led by Anna Florez, FNP-C and Bianca Ortega, PA-C. They bring more of the services your family needs close to home. Anna will be there four days a week and Bianca will be there one to two days a week.

    Our team provides coordinated care between our healthcare professionals and our Artesia General Hospital specialists. That means no matter what your medical condition, there will be fast and efficient communication between your medical team. This partnership also allows us to offer complete access to the latest innovations and treatment options.

    You will find compassionate care, whether you are treated for an illness, an accident, a routine physical, immunizations, X-rays, lab work or minor procedures. Female practitioners are available to provide private and sensitive evaluations, discussions and treatment when the need arises.
