ONGOING MEDICAL MONITORING
Managing medication effectively requires your attention and commitment. Follow up appointments are scheduled anywhere between 2 weeks to every 3 months, depending on your response to treatment.
During your follow up appointments, our providers will evaluate your progress, monitor any potential side effects/adverse effects and order labs as indicated.
