You will fill out a health history, and you will be given a handout with information about the medications we use. If you haven’t had labs done in the past year, we suggest that you have them done at our clinic or with your primary care physician as soon as possible. However, most of our patients are getting labs with their own physicians, and we do not require that you do it at our clinic.
A medical assistant will check your blood pressure, pulse, height, and weight, and then you will go to an exam room. The doctor or nurse practitioner will see you and discuss diet, exercise and medications. A brief heart and lung exam is performed, and then you’ll receive your prescription. You may fill your prescription at our clinic, or you can take it to your pharmacy. Your visit will be private, unless you wish otherwise – some of our patients come with a friend, family member, or coworker, and they sometimes want to be seen together.
