Wellness Clinic

If you’re a member of DOHC and you have Medicare Advantage you can benefit from our Wellness Clinic Services. A yearly visit that’s more thorough than a typical checkup. It helps you stay as healthy as possible and gives you and your primary care provider more information about your health.

You can make a Wellness Clinic appointment for yourself at any time, or your primary care provider can assist you. Transportation is available if needed.

Your Care Team

Build a relationship with an experienced team that advocates for your interests and helps you reach your wellness goals. You may get care from:

  • Medical Assistant – Professional who provides clinical and administrative services
  • Nurse Practitioner (NP) – Registered nurse with advanced training and education
  • Physician Assistant (PA) – Certified, licensed provider who offers medical care under the guidance of a doctor

Trust your Wellness Clinic team to communicate with all your other DOHC providers, including your primary care provider, so you receive the most effective care for your needs.
