How often do our patients see a doctor?

The short answer is: We are here as often as you need us. At a minimum, our physicians will schedule your regular appointments twice a year. After assessing the patient’s state of health, our physicians may order additional blood work or refer you to a specialist. There are instances such as Coumadin Clinic or chronic conditions where you may be scheduled more frequently.
