Our staff will provide you and your family with all of the necessary tools and information to help you maintain your best level of health.
Benefits of the CHF/COPD Wellness Clinic
Our highly trained and experienced registered nurses work closely with your physician, providing updates, if necessary, after each visit and collaborating with your physician to decide the best course of action to help you maintain your health. We provide free weekly health screenings, personalizing your care to meet your needs, and helping you achieve your individual health goals.
What can I expect as a patient?
As a new patient of the CHF/COPD Wellness Clinic, you will undergo a complete physical assessment by one of our registered nurses at our CHF/COPD Wellness Clinic, including weight and vital signs. Your nurse will discuss your medications, diet, exercise and any other medical needs. Once all of your information has been gathered, your nurse will work with your primary care physician to determine the best course of action for your health.
