Going to a new clinic can be a scary prospect for some. New faces, a new scheduling process, and a different provider can cause a lot of anxiety. Tri-County Health Care is here to ease you into our special brand of care. That’s why our care team developed establishing care visits. These appointments introduce you to a new provider while gathering important medical information.
Every provider is a little different in how they help patients, so this appointment allows you to see the person behind the lab coat. During this initial meeting, you will share important health history and develop health goals for the future.
How to establish care?
If you are new to the area and trying to connect with a provider, don’t hesitate to reach out to schedulers and ask for an establish care visit. A scheduler may even ask to coordinate this visit during the first contact with you. There are no special charges associated with this appointment.
Jamie Udy on establish care visits
Providers at Tri-County Health Care are excited to offer a streamlined way to establish care. The initial appointment can be a little tough, but they are here to make it painless. Jamie Udy, APRN, FNP, enjoys looking beyond clinical procedures and views these visits as a chance to get to know the patient. By understanding a little more about each patient’s lifestyle, hobbies, careers, and families, a provider can calculate an even more accurate care plan.
“We feel that having the establish care visits not only matches the patient with a provider, but it also ensures that patients are matched with a provider that will help them get the best outcomes. Also, it is important for patients to know that they have choices in healthcare providers.” – Jamie Udy, APRN, FNP
