Office Visits

When you schedule an appointment with our office to see one of our doctors or physician assistants, it may be for any number of reasons. You may be experiencing an acute illness, require a periodic recheck of a chronic condition before medications can be refilled, or simply because you wish to have a periodic check up or routine physical. Because every patients insurance coverage varies, it is important that you understand the difference between a physical and a sick visit, accurately informing the physician of the reason for your visit at the outset of the encounter. That reason will be documented in the physicians encounter note that goes in your chart.
