Welcome to the Personal MD Orientation
Provider versus Nurse visits
At Personal MD, you can schedule a visit with your provider or with the nurse. You want to see your provider for acute, chronic, or preventive exams. During your exam, you will have plenty of time to visit your provider, evaluate your medical issues, and develop a plan. Each regular visit is scheduled for 30 minutes, and annual preventive exams are scheduled for 1 hour. Nurse visits are for tasks that you have already discussed with your provider. For example, we use nurse visits to schedule a blood draw, receive an injection ordered by your provider, or remove stitches. If you are unsure of the type of visit you need, our staff will help you figure out the best kind of appointment for you.
Type of visits we offer
At Personal MD, you can be seen in the office using a telemedicine visit (live screen visit) or a telephone visit. In some cases, the problem will dictate the type of visit needed; however, we are happy to work with you if you prefer an alternative to in-office visits. The Personal MD Medical Care program covers all three types of visits.
Unique qualities about our patient visits
A few unique qualities about our office are the length of our visits and that we never double book your appointment. When you have a scheduled visit, you are the only person scheduled at that time. We encourage you to notify our office if you have to change your appointment as soon as possible. Please see our no-show and cancellation policy on our website.
How to schedule an appointment
To schedule an appointment, you can call our office and speak to one of our staff members. We do not offer the option to schedule visits with your provider through our patient portal.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
