How much time did you spend with your doctor during your last wellness checkup?  Did you talk about preventive care?  Did you feel like your doctor was in a rush?  Did you leave with a plan for your health and understand the next steps?

Most annual checkups include a nurse asking a few health related questions and taking some vital signs.  The doctor is usually in an out of the room in 5-8 minutes.  The doctor may do some blood tests and make a few general recommendations and send you on your way.  

TeleMedVIP has developed an entirely new protocol which includes a proactive approach to health.  The annual exam covers dna testing and a detailed family history.  Your TeleMedVIP-affiliated doctor will take you through the TeleMedVIP Wellness Program, which is paid for by your membership fee.

You will receive comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests that have been shown to help detect issues earlier but are not typically covered by commercial insurance or Medicare. The results help give a clearer view of your overall health.

You and your doctor will discuss your health test results in detail. You’ll know your numbers, understand what those numbers mean and how they can be improved. Together, you’ll develop an individualized action plan that will include next steps, how progress will be measured and a time frame for follow up.

Whether you’re managing a chronic illness, have a family history of disease or consider yourself the picture of health, there’s always room for improvement. This is what the TeleMedVIP Wellness Program is all about — identifying and addressing your unique needs so you can focus on living your best.

Even if you’re in the best shape of your life, MDVIP’s Wellness Program can help you maintain good health and avoid some of the problems that come with aging through early detection. In short, the TeleMedVIP Wellness Program is a comprehensive tool to help you and your doctor map out a health plan specific to you.
