Sick visit for illness or infection
Acute illnesses or infections occur suddenly and have a rapid onset of symptoms. Typically, acute illnesses and infections will resolve quickly, sometimes on their own and at other times needing medical treatment. Examples of acute illnesses and infections include, but are not limited to, sore throats, influenza (the flu), cough and/or fever, sinus infections, urinary tract infections (a UTI) or broken bones, sprains or lacerations.
Adolescent care visits
Chronic health problems during the teen years can often make physical and emotional development more complicated. Adolescent medicine focuses on addressing the health needs of the adolescent's illness, condition, or injury. Adolescent medicine also anticipates and assesses developmental complications associated with the healthcare needs of the specific medical problem. Healthcare providers in adolescent medicine help adolescents and their families to develop strategies to deal with chronic health issues.
It is important to see your primary care provider (PCP) at least once a year for an overall physical. This appointment is about preventive care and lets your doctor find potential health problems before they become a health problem. Preventive care can include immunizations, lab tests, physical exams and prescriptions. During this exam the provider will discuss your overall health and concerns and perform a comprehensive exam on the entire body.
Care of geriatric population or elder care visit
Americans are living longer and living well for longer periods of time. This has created a relatively new and growing area of healthcare and provider services, known as elder care. Elder care encompasses a wide variety of issues, including choosing an appropriate healthcare provider to care for an aging patient, specialty care for chronic disease management and making decisions about moving an elderly person from the home environment to a residential care setting.
Men's wellness care
Preventive health is important for men of all ages. Regular checkups are key to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. These preventative appointments provide opportunities to find and deal with medical problems in their early stages. This is when many conditions are more treatable and less threatening to overall health.
Same day appointments
Same day appointments are available for patients with acute illness. Please call to schedule an appointment. Examples of acute illnesses and infections include, but are not limited to, sore throats, influenza (the flu), cough and/or fever, sinus infections, urinary tract infections (a UTI) or broken bones, sprains or lacerations.
Our providers have a number of appointments reserved for sick visits. Call 406-233-4037 to schedule.
Women’s wellness care
It is important to see your care provider at least once a year for an overall physical. This appointment is about preventive care and lets your doctor find potential health problems before they become a health problem. For women, basic gynecology care should be included in the overall wellness visit along with immunizations, lab tests and prescriptions. Gynecology care includes pap smears and testing for sexually transmitted infections and diseases for women of all ages, from pre-hormonal ages to post-menopausal.
Children grow and develop quickly in the first few years. It is important that they have frequent well-child visits, at least once every 6 months until they are 2 years old. After 2 years of age, most doctors recommend children's preventive care screenings occur at least once a year. During these exams, your doctor will take your child's height and weight, assess their physical skills, review social and emotional development, and ask you about different behavioral health tendencies. Your pediatrician will also provide services for screenings, vaccinations and immunizations, hearing tests and vision tests. After your child starts school, these visits can be school physicals.
