Norton Community Medical Associates is dedicated to building relationships with our patients as we provide care for the whole person.

As a recognized patient-centered medical home, our general practitioners work to build an ongoing, active partnership with you that proactively works to keep you in your best health.

Primary Care Services

Norton Community Medical Associates is your home for primary care. Our conveniently located Louisville and Southern Indiana doctor’s offices are staffed with teams of experienced physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and other medical personnel.

The Norton Community Medical Associates teams work with you to prevent disease and keep you well. Your primary care provider is there for you when you have occasional illnesses, such as a cold or ear infection. They also help manage chronic conditions, such as heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes. 

What is a patient-centered medical home? 

A patient-centered medical home is a model of care based on a strong, long-term provider-patient relationship. Instead of seeking care only when you are sick, you have a dedicated doctor and care team in one office.

The care team gives care when you are well and when you are sick, and helps you coordinate with other qualified clinicians and specialists should you need them. This makes it easier for you monitor your health and keep track of medicines, test results and more.

The National Committee for Quality Assurance recognized Norton Healthcare as a patient-centered medical home. This recognition acknowledges our excellence in the following standards:

  • Coordinated care – Our primary care providers work with other physicians and health care professionals to manage care and provide needed resources. 
  • Physician teamwork – Physician-led teams work together for patients, especially in preventing disease and managing chronic conditions. 
  • One stop for primary care – Most care is provided in the same location so you don’t have to travel far to get the care you need. 
  • Patient-focused care – Our providers and patients build long-term partnerships for informed, compassionate care. 

Vaccine Philosophy

We firmly believe in the effectiveness of vaccines to prevent serious illness and to save lives.

We firmly believe in the safety of our vaccines.

We firmly believe that all children and adults should receive all of the recommended vaccines according to the schedule published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Academy of Pediatrics.

We firmly believe, based on all available literature, evidence and current studies, that vaccines do not cause autism or other developmental disabilities.

We firmly believe that thimerosal, a preservative that has been in vaccines for decades and remains in some vaccines, does not cause autism or other developmental disabilities.

We firmly believe that vaccinating children and adults may be the single most important health-promoting intervention we perform as health care providers, and that you can perform as patients, parents and caregivers. The recommended vaccines and the vaccine schedule are the result of years and years of scientific study and data-gathering on millions of children and adults by thousands of our brightest scientists and physicians.
