Yes, depending on the age and need of the patient, types of visits include:
If you anticipate that you may need to discuss sensitive or detailed medical information during your appointment, you may also wish to bring a family member or friend to your appointment for support.
The Lifetime Health Medical Group practices are available for same day appointments for sudden illness or acute needs. Sick visits can usually be accommodated on the same day that you call. Most new patients (adult or pediatric) can be seen within 1-3 days if necessary, or if there are no urgent needs, we will schedule a time that is convenient for you. A pediatric patient can get a "well child checkup" appointment normally within 1-2 weeks.
At Lifetime Health Medical Group, we strive to make appointment times as convenient as possible. If you have scheduled an appointment and are unable to make your visit, please call as soon as possible to cancel your appointment.
If your primary care physician is not available, one of our other experienced providers will be available to care for you.
Your child’s first visit should be within the first week of leaving the hospital. During your baby's first year, please schedule visits at 2 weeks, 2, 4, 6, 9 and 12 months. A child should also be seen at 15, 18 and 24 months of age. After age 2, we recommend well child checkups once a year.
Your primary care physician and health care team will work with you to identify specialists who will meet your needs.
If you are experiencing a true medical emergency, please call 911 and seek immediate medical attention. If you have an urgent need after regular office hours, call your doctor’s office and trained nurses or an on-call physician will assist you. Depending upon your need, you will receive home care advice, be offered a next-day appointment, or be directed to an urgent care or emergency center. Urgent Care by Lifetime Health is available for urgent, non-life threatening illness or injury afternoons, evenings, weekends and holidays.
