Primary care practitioners provide the first line of care for patients. As your primary care provider, Karen will offer both wellness appointments and sick visits. She’ll also be available to answer any questions you may have about your health.
During a wellness appointment, Karen evaluates your current health and screens you for common health problems. At the beginning of your wellness visit, a member of the staff will take your vital signs and measure your weight. Next, Karen will perform a physical exam and review your chart. It is typical that screening bloodwork is ordered.
In order to make sure your insurance will cover the wellness exam 100%, save any problems for a subsequent visit.
If you come to Karen because of an illness or injury, she’ll begin with a thorough exam. She’ll ask questions about your symptoms or the circumstances that led to your visit. In many cases, she’ll be able to diagnose your condition based only on this information. In some cases, you may need additional testing before a diagnosis can be confirmed.
Depending on the outcome of your tests, Karen may recommend medication or other treatments to help you recover, or she may refer you to a specialist.
Plan on booking an appointment with Karen if you:
Innovative Healthcare believes that controlled substances are best left to the appropriate specialists. If you have controlled substance medications, please refer back to your current specialist for refills.
If you aren’t sure whether your situation warrants an office visit, please contact Innovative Healthcare Family Practice for guidance.
