When scheduling a visit, think about the type of care or services you might need.
Your doctor can only provide certain care during an in-person office visit. Regular office visits also help you build a solid relationship with your doctor.
Choose in-person visits for any of these:
- Testing and treating COVID-19
- Hands-on exams
- Lab tests or X-rays
- Cancer or other complicated conditions
- Sprains, broken bones or other injuries requiring bandaging
