TYPES OF VISITS

Office visit.  This is  a 15-minute visit for treating one or two health issues, depending on their complexity.  Additional issues require further office visits.

Preventive visit.  This is a 30-minute visit ONLY for addressing preventive medicine issues and NOT for treating or managing illness.  Examples of what we would cover would be cancer screening (prostate, breast, PAP, colon, skin etc), immunizations, review of diet and exercise, smoking counseling, family health history, blood tests to screen for high cholesterol, diabetes etc. and a screening physical exam.

Well child visit.  This is a preventive visit for people under 18 years of age.  Like an adult preventive visit, it is for addressing preventive medicine issues and not for treating or managing illness.  Examples of what we would cover would be assessment of hearing, vision, growth, development, diet; counseling about common anticipated age-appropriate health topics, immunizations, screening blood and urine tests.

Nurse only visit.  This is a visit that does not require face to face contact with a provider, for simple issues such as flu shots , skin tests for tuberculosis, pregnancy tests, etc.
