For many reasons, there are people who just cannot bring themselves to visit a traditional clinic or doctors office. Shelly will be happy to see you for an initial physical and assistance with obtaining further management of any medical issues. As an independent practice, we are not linked to any healthcare system and can refer throughout the healthcare continuum.
For other patients, the endless stream of specialists' offices and hospitals has become simply over-whelming. We can assist you with regaining control of your time and your individual plan of care. If you are needing a local provider to assist an out of town specialist in monitoring your progress without repeated trips to St. Louis, Champaign, or Springfield, we would be happy to help. We can collaborate with your specialists in the monitoring process and help facilitate the care plan they would like you to continue. Care coordination is an important and often under-developed part of healthcare. As a clinical nurse specialist, Shelly will work closely with you and your treatment team to save you time, frustration, and money.
Finally, there are many people who are struggling with managing complex medical issues at home. Diabetes, heart failure, substance abuse, and a myriad of other conditions are over-whelming for many people and their families. Shelly and Tina can work closely with you and your family to ensure you have the education, support, and confidence to regain control of your health.
