The providers at IMAT take your health care seriously. A patient is established into our practice after an initial visit where we conduct a comprehensive review of his/her detailed past medical history, previous surgeries, current medications and an overall assessment of their health. At subsequent visits, we are then better equipped to treat the patient’s acute illnesses as they develop (colds, flu,headaches etc) or design a treatment plan for any chronic medical illnesses (Diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, etc).
At IMAT, we like to see our patients annually to update any changes in their healthcare over the previous year and guide any preventative care tests and procedures which are appropriate for the patients’ age, such as Mammograms, colonoscopies, etc. This is done at an Annual Wellness Visit. Biometrics, required now by most employers, are also measured at this visit and include your Body Mass Index, your fasting blood sugar and your cholesterol. At this visit, we also identify any problems that the patient may be having that will need to be addressed in the upcoming year, sometimes requiring referral to specialists. We will then be able to refer the patient to a variety of excellent specialists both at Medical City Dallas and at other hospitals.
Some patients in our office are seen annually while others require visits every 3-4 months or more frequently depending on their medical problems.
