In an effort to maximize access and convenience Temescal Creek Medicine provides several different ways for you to engage with your doctor. We believe patients should be able to access health care in ways that best suit their needs. For some this may mean office visits, for others telephone, video or email visits, even house calls. Your choice! We strive to provide the care you want and need, when and how you want it.
Appointments and Services
Standard Office Visit $189
Standard office visits allow face to face time for focused issues to complex concerns. Being together in the same space is always an advantage for communication and for visits requiring examination or procedures.
Good Health Review $375
The Good Health Review is our opportunity to evaluate, review and dialogue about the health factors that impact your vitality. These factors include behavior and lifestyle choices, family medical history, preventive care needs and the status of ongoing chronic conditions. The Good Health Review is also an opportunity for us to better understand you in the context of your REAL life and therefore provide personalized, relevant advice and counsel for your health.
We realize that there are medical concerns that may appropriately and effectively be addressed without having to come into the office. You have a choice of a scheduled telephone visit, email exchange or telehealth video visit with your doctor, whichever is most convenient and appropriate for you. A telephone or email visit that takes the place of what otherwise would have been an office visit will be charged at the Virtual Visit rates listed above. There will certainly be times when we communicate via telephone or email that are not "visits" and there is no fee.
