Updated: Apr 14
Share The Love
BIMA will be celebrating its 20th Anniversary on April 3rd from 3 pm-6 pm. We have big plans to celebrate with our patients that we will be sharing with you very soon – keep an eye out for an invitation next month but go ahead and SAVE THE DATE.
New Lab Our new lab is open! Located in our new space across the hall from our primary clinic location on the third floor of One-Nineteen is our new lab and diagnostic imaging area. If your provider orders lab or ultrasound testing during your next visit, these ancillary services will be available for you, offering convenience, quality, and stellar customer service. Of course please come prepared having contacted your insurance company and knowing if you need to be referred out for your lab services. Go Red - Heart Health Month By living a healthy lifestyle, you can help keep your blood pressure, cholesterol, and sugar normal and lower your risk for heart disease and heart attack. A healthy lifestyle includes the following:
Eating a healthy diet.
Maintaining a healthy weight.
Getting enough physical activity.
Not smoking or using other forms of tobacco.
Limiting alcohol use.
Each Friday BIMA team members will be wearing as much RED as possible to spark conversations and raise awareness of the risks of heart disease and stroke. If you aren’t sure if you could be at risk, scheduling a preventive wellness exam with your doctor is the best place to start. Do you have a Medicare Advantage Plan? If so, please make sure you stop in and see the new BIMAseniors Patient Engagement Center found on the first floor of One-Nineteen and meet Cari Heiberger, your BIMA Member Support Representative (MSR). Cari can help you make the most of your health benefits. There are also regular activities, classes, and meetings led by Cari that help connect you with your health in ways that are both educational and fun. You can also connect with her by going to our website www.bimapc.com and clicking on Programs/BIMAseniors.
