Morning Medicine is our new independent medical practice that will be opening in mid-July of this year.
We will have office hours seven days a week from 6 am to 10 am so that people can get urgent care and continuing primary care before work or school.
We will be caring for adult and pediatric patients.
Right now we are finalizing our equipment list. Our goal is to be as well equipped as any state of the art emergency department.
This means that we will offer state of the art x-ray, ultrasound, in-office lab testing, and access to inexpensive [well, less expensive] imaging such as CT scans and MRI scans. We will also offer less expensive access to GI endoscopy.
We will feature a sliding scale for persons who do not have health insurance or who have a high deductible health insurance plan.
We will be fully equipped to diagnose and treat acute and chronic eye problems.
There are several requirements for complete eye care:
- Indirect ophthalmoscopy and retinal photography
- Here is a post on our approach to indirect ophthalmoscopy and retinal photography. This approach is practical for any primary care practice.
- Slit lamp for the diagnosis of corneal and anterior segment disease.
- We will be using a traditional slit lamp with photographic documentation capability and an applination tonometer.
- A primary care practice can purchase a portable slit lamp for $1500 – 2000.
