Group Medical Visits
What is a Group Medical Visit?
Group Medical Visits engages the patient to become active participants in a medical group setting. All patients attending the group visits are patients of the practice and have been diagnosed with the condition being addressed at the visit. Our intention is to optimize health outcomes and quality of life through personalized evidence-based clinical care. We want to treat in a group setting as we have found a supportive, like-minded experience can offer insight and true solutions.
Why should I consider a Group Medical Visit?
Some conditions are best treated in a group setting. For this reason, we offer group classes open to current patients dealing with that condition. These fun medical visits can help you explore issues in a creative way and help you learn about nutrition, exercise, herbs, and supplements and share your feelings or experiences with others.
Who can attend a Group Medical Visit?
Only current patients of the FHPIM practice can register to attend our group visits. These visits are billable to insurance as a regular office visit.
What is the cost of a Group Medical Visit?
The visit will be billed to insurance as an office visit for the topic that is discussed, i.e. hypertension, high cholesterol, diabetes etc. The patient must have the medical condition that is being addressed to attend the session. We ask our patients to call and schedule their spot as any other medical office visit. Registration is required.
What If I have Privacy Concerns?
Here at FHPIM, your privacy is of our utmost concern. Since these are group visits, attendees will be asked to sign a privacy waiver with that understanding that they choose to participate in a group visit and all information offered will be public. For those who have privacy concerns, we will continue to offer individual appointments especially if they have other concerns that need personal attention or require medication adjustment.
