Delays in preventive care can be risky 

As the pandemic shows no sign of slowing down, people are continuing to delay the preventive care they need to stay healthy. According to the American Medical Association, two in every five people have canceled or delayed health care visits during the pandemic. 

Preventive care is important because it can help detect or prevent serious medical problems before they become major ones. 

Some of The Good Clinic’s preventive care services can be completed virtually: 

  • Preventive and routine health maintenance exams 

  • Wellness plan creation 

  • Evaluation and management visits 

  • Behavioral health evaluations, management, and referrals 

  • Evaluations with referrals and care coordination with specialists 

Other preventive care services can be provided in a hybrid fashion, using a virtual visit to streamline the in-office encounter. Some of these include:  

  • Medicare evaluations: Welcome to Medicare & Annual Medicare Wellness
