Making the most of your medical exam:
• Be prepared. Write down you questions and concerns.
• Your medical history is important information.
• Bring a list of your medications.
• Feel free to bring a family member or friend with you, sometimes it is helpful to have another pair of ears listening with you.
We offer care coordinators to help you walk through the process of test and concerns. If you would like to talk with one of our coordinators, please let the Doctor or Nurse know at the time of your visit or call us! We are here to help you.
Two of our RNs Jen Kramer and Brenda Miller have trained to become Certified Care Coordinators. Working together, the clinic practitioners and these Care Coordinators identify patients who would benefit from support in addition to the traditional support the clinic and practitioners provide.
Care Coordinators help:
• Patients with two or more chronic conditions
• Who need some extra help managing appointments, medications.
• Questions you may have about what to do with health information.
• With frequent contact, they guide you through the confusion of healthcare.
There are many benefits from using our Care Coordinators.They may suggest the addition of other healthcare professionals to the patient’s care team. Through frequent contact, and helping the patient understand their condition and what they can do to care for themselves, they aim to help patients return to a healthier state or to live as well as possible with their condition.
