What's internal medicine?

How often should I see my primary care doctor?

This depends on your current state of health, your ongoing health conditions, and your particular needs. In general, most doctors recommend that patients have a wellness visit at least once a year. Some patients may need more frequent visits, though. Your doctor will design a plan that works for your needs.

During a wellness visit, your DePersia, Chernoff, & Ocasio PC physician can review your medical history and compare it your current condition. Notable negative changes may mean that you need to take action to prevent illness, or that you need to begin treatment right away before the problem grows worse.

A regularly scheduled wellness visit gives you the opportunity to spend time with your primary care doctor, the doctor who knows you best, to focus on maintaining and even improving your health.
