You might want to schedule a physician consultation for many reasons. Common ones include:
These are some of the main purposes for which people arrange a physician consultation. However, the Tru Medical Management doctors are available to see you regarding any issues or concerns about your health.
In some cases, the practice’s other medical staff carry out routine primary care services, such as blood pressure measurements, ultrasound scans, blood draws for lab tests, and immunizations. You can be sure that you’ll always see the person best qualified to deal with your concern whenever you call to make an appointment.
Your doctor tailors every consultation to suit your specific needs, so what happens can vary. However, most physician consultations include a physical exam, medical history review, and symptom check. The more information they have about your problem, the easier it will be to diagnose and treat.
A physical exam begins with a check of your vital signs, such as your blood pressure, heart rate, lung and heart sounds, and temperature. Then your doctor examines the area of concern. For example, if you have abdominal pain, they ask you to lie down so they can carefully press on different parts of your abdomen.
If you have a musculoskeletal problem like back pain, your doctor might ask you to make specific movements to test your range of motion. For upper respiratory infection symptoms, they look down your throat using a bright light.
You might need to undergo tests to confirm or rule out a diagnosis or evaluate your current treatment. Tru Medical Management has an on-site lab for blood and other samples and ultrasound machines for diagnostic imaging. Your doctor will offer advice and arrange follow-up care where necessary before you go.
