April 2020 BIMA Newsletter
Preventive Health While we are following physical distance guidelines it is a perfect time to schedule your Annual Wellness Visit (AWV) with your doctor. Many of the insurance plans have allowed telehealth to take place not only for follow-ups but also for annual wellness visits (AWV). Think of this physical as "preventive maintenance," much like you have done on your car every few thousand miles. By having important health conversations, a physical exam and preventive screenings performed, you can avoid catastrophic "breakdowns." If you have an upcoming appointment don't worry our office is contacting patients daily to verify your upcoming appointment and walk you through the necessary steps to have an in-person visit or a virtual visit (VOV). For more details on how to prepare for your BIMAeClinic (telehealth) visit see below.
