Care Management is a process to improve patient care by helping patients manage their overall health and conditions and reduce ER/Urgent care visits. This is done by helping you identify health goals and then developing a care plan to meet those goals.
- If you feel your child would benefit from some guidance for behavioral issues related to ADHD or Anxiety
- If you feel your child would benefit from some nutritional counseling
- If you feel your child would benefit from some asthma education
Care Management is a covered service and is available to all patients.
All visits are done here at our office or over the telephone with one of our care managers.
