TeraPractice is a new approach to primary care that provides personalized care wherever you are. Get in touch with your health team through on-the-go messaging, video visits and same-day appointments. Whether you want to stay healthy, manage a chronic condition or improve your mood, Tera provides easy access to primary care services. We see health as a journey, and we offer support along the way.
The Tera team includes a primary care doctor, nurse and health coach who get to know you beyond your medical chart. Whether you prefer light touch or in-depth support, your team will consider your needs and create a health plan to match.
With our app you can send messages, video chat with your care team and schedule in-person appointments when needed. Our virtual-first model means healthcare fits into your life – not the other way around.
Tera provides convenient care at no extra cost. Video visits have a standard copay, while calls and email messages are free of charge. Plus, Tera is a part of the Sutter Health network, which means you have access to a wide range of specialists, when you need it.
