Acute illness or infections visit
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.
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 helps your doctor find potential health problems before they become a health problem. Preventive care may include immunizations, lab tests, physical exams and prescriptions. During this exam your provider will discuss your overall health, any concerns and perform a comprehensive exam on your 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 living a healthy lifestyle. These preventive 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 an 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 406-237-8300 to schedule.
Sport physicals are often required before participation in recreational or organized sports. During the appointment, a healthcare specialist will evaluate and determine if you are able to safely participate. During this exam strengths and weaknesses will be noted and a recommendation for the appropriate sport(s) may be given.
“Welcome to Medicare” visit
"Welcome to Medicare" is a preventive visit available as an introduction to Medicare Part B. You must get this visit within the first 12 months you have Part B. This visit includes a review of your medical health and social history, as well as education and counseling about preventive services like specific screenings, immunizations, preventive care measures (blood pressure, cholesterol count, etc.) as well as body mass index calculation, vision test, mental health assessment and discussion around creating advance directives.
This visit is covered one time and is not considered to be your yearly “Wellness” visit.
Well child care
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 or sports physicals.
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 helps your doctor find potential health problems before they become a health problem. For women, basic gynecologic care should be included in the overall wellness visit along with immunizations, lab tests and prescriptions. Gynecologic care includes pap smears and testing for sexually transmitted infections and diseases for women of all ages, from pre-hormonal ages to post-menopausal.
