Become a Patient:
Primary Care

Families First does not have openings for new (adult) primary care patients at this time. To become a primary care patient, please start out at our Somersworth office.  You will be able to switch to the Portsmouth office later if you choose.

We are accepting new pediatric patients.

What should I do first?

Then what?

  • If you have insurance, call to 603-422-8208 (press 1) to schedule your appointment. If you don’t have insurance, once we have processed your sliding scale application, we will call you to schedule your first appointment. When scheduling, let us know if you will need child care or translation.
  • Arrive 5-10 minutes early to finalize paperwork. Bring your forms if you haven’t mailed them in. Ask for a Patient Handbook.
  • Bring a list of the medications you take, or the actual medications.
  • Bring your insurance co-payment or sliding-fee-scale payment.
