Good health starts with good nutrition. 

At General Physician, PC we offer individualized nutritional counseling, diabetes education, and related services based on each patient’s needs. This, in coordination with your referring physician, will help you to achieve your health-related goals. Setting up a wellness plan can benefit a wide variety of conditions including diabetes, metabolic and autoimmune disorders, food allergies, gastrointestinal issues, hypertension, oncology, cardiac rehab, or those in need of nutritional guidance for sports or a lifestyle change. 

 

Video Visits:

We are excited to offer our current patients Video Visits. Rather than coming to our office, you can remain in the comfort of your home and still receive a consultation/appointment with one of our providers.

To participate you will need to have a valid email address and a computer or device with a camera (mobile phone, iPad, tablet, etc). Simply call our office and we can get you scheduled. 

Many insurance companies are covering video visits like they would regular in-office appointments.

Please Note: Video Visits may not be appropriate in every situation. To see if it is a good option for you, please call our office and speak to a patient services representative.

To learn more, click on the image below and watch a brief informational video about video visits.
