Preventive Health Care
Viewing your health long-term reduces likely health issues down the road as you grow older. As far as we’re concerned, the best treatment for illness is preventive treatment. When it comes to how seriously we take it, our statistics reveal a telling story. Our doctors provide double the preventive healthcare measures than the national average. That’s why we are recognized as an established leader in the field, and why programs like our breakthrough “Art & Quality of Medicine” are held in such high regard.
You can have your prescriptions delivered directly to you without any additional charge. Once you meet your co-pay, an independent pharmacy will deliver your medicines to you six days a week via courier or U.S. Postal service. This convenience works well for patients on maintenance medications or those who simply don't want to wait in long pharmacy lines.
