Virtual wellness visits are an innovative new service for you to get a professional diagnosis without having to leave your home. This groundbreaking technology is improving the quality of care for many patients. With a DirectMD Direct Care Membership, you will have your primary physician in the palm of your hand.
If you are using DirectMD Virtual Primary Care for the first time, you may be wondering what to expect. Not to worry, all you will need is a computer or mobile device with a webcam and internet connection. You will then join a virtual appointment where you and Dr. Hughes will able able to speak to each other just like traditional doctor’s appointments.
Unlike traditional offices, Dr. Hughes will be focused on only you. There is no balancing of multiple patients and you won’t just have a nurse helping you. Instead, your entire appointment will be a one-on-one conversation with an experienced physician who has provided primary care for more than a decade.
A wellness visit, or annual checkup, is a preventive health care visit. This is a time for Dr. Hughes to check your overall health, ask about any health concerns you may have, and give you preventive care measures, such as screenings. Most people should have a wellness visit at least once every year. You may need more frequent visits if you have a chronic or worsening health condition.
Just as in an in-person appointment, during the wellness exam Dr. Hughes may:
- Record your height, weight, and blood pressure
- Order blood/urine/other lab tests
- Check for cancer with visual screening tests
- Check mobility
- Review any symptoms you are having
- Order any needed vaccinations
- Talk to you about your health concerns and how to stay healthy
There is no specific list of tests or screenings that are done during a wellness visit. They will vary depending on your age, health, and other factors.
Keep in mind that this is a regular wellness screening with a fully licensed physician. Unlike other virtual wellness services with nurse appointments, Dr. Hughes can diagnose and prescribe the necessary treatment plan that is right for you. Don’t waste your time with other virtual health services that simply treat your symptoms. Dr. Hughes will treat you as more than just a collection of symptoms. Join today and experience what a dedicated physician can do for your lifelong health.
