Introducing DoctorPlan

By Feature, In the News

Introducing DoctorPlan

Comprehensive Wellness is pleased to introduce DoctorPlan, a mobile app that offers our patients a new way to manage your health between visits.

Think of DoctorPlan as your digital health diary—a place to record your symptoms, vitals, medications, and exercise. Your DoctorPlan information can only be accessed by you and your Comprehensive Wellness clinicians and staff to provide them with a wealth of information to make your calls and visits even more productive.

DoctorPlan will enable our patients to:

  • record and track symptoms, vital signs (blood pressure, temperature, blood sugar), and medications;
  • answer intake forms and check-in questionnaires prior to visits;
  • receive messages from your providers at Comprehensive Wellness;
  • access videos for exercises, mindfulness lessons and more;
  • reference informational articles on common conditions and wellness topics; and
  • contact our office to schedule appointments and refill prescriptions.

Each of our patients will receive an email from DoctorPlan with instructions on how to confirm your email address and install the DoctorPlan app. We look forward to taking our personalized care model to the next level with the app.

A Message from Our Medical Director

By Covid-19 Resources, In the News, Our Practice

To Our Patients,

Thank you for trusting us with your healthcare needs at this unprecedented time. We are working hard to ensure that our team at Comprehensive Wellness is here to provide our patients with the right care, at the right time, in the right place. To that end, we would like to share with you how we are ensuring that we can do just that.

  • We will have a staff member available to answer phone calls during our normal weekday hours; however, in order to minimize contact, our office is not open for any walk-in appointments, prescription pickups, or any other services. After hours calls will be directed to our answering service and forwarded to the appropriate clinical contact.
  • If you have an acute/urgent care internal medicine/women’s health issue, please call the office. Our staff will provide a ‘pre-screen’ via the telephone (including screening for COVID-19 symptoms) and determine the best course of action. Each situation is unique. Depending on the specific need, we will be scheduling phone, web-based, in-office, and home visits as warranted. Our clinicians will be available for phone and web-based visits as their individual schedules permit.
  • Please contact the office if you have an urgent need in any of our other practice areas, including functional medicine, musculoskeletal health, nutrition, endocrinology, behavioral health, cardiology, aesthetics, or dermatology. Most of our clinicians are available for virtual visits (phone and/or web-based). Please call the office to schedule.
  • If you need to refill or pick up a prescription, please call the office to make arrangements to do so. Please do not come to the office without explicit instructions and a set pickup time.

We will continue to provide our patients with helpful information through the News section of our website, as well as via social media outlets. For the most up-to-date information about COVID-19, please refer to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.

One of the most important things we can all do during this pandemic is to make every effort possible to stay home, practice diligent handwashing, and support one another. We are all in this together.

Sincerely,

Denise Hilliard, MD
Medical Director, Comprehensive Wellness

Coronavirus - What you Need to Know

2019 Novel Coronavirus

By Covid-19 Resources, In the News

As you are probably aware from the news, there is a current outbreak of Coronavirus (CoV). These are a large family of viruses that include the common cold, Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV) and new strains that have previously not been identified in humans, Novel Coronavirus (nCoV). The current outbreak is a 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV); it is under investigation by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and is a rapidly evolving situation.

For the most up-to-date information, we recommend you consult the CDC’s website and that of the World Health Organization (WHO). Both sites provide excellent information on the virus, it’s spread, how best to protect yourself and treatment.

CDC: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html 
WHO: https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019

Prevention

As always with your health, prevention is the best course of action. According to the CDC:

There is currently no vaccine to prevent 2019-nCoV infection. The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, the CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Again, for more detailed information, please consult the CDC and WHO websites.
