What’s New at Our Practice
Schedule Your 2020 Annual Physical Today!
Most insurance companies cover an annual physical with no cost to the patient.
An annual physical exam is a visit focused on preventative care, immunizations, healthy lifestyle discussion, and coordinating care and referrals. Please keep in mind your annual physical is not part of your office follow-up appointments. An office visit, sick visit, or medication check appointment is a time to discuss and evaluate new and existing medical conditions.
You can call us (520-797-8555), Monday-Friday 8a-5p or contact us here. We look forward to helping you coordinate your annual physical appointment to ensure you start the new year off on a healthy note!
