A follow-up visit with the physician is scheduled shortly thereafter to provide our Bespoke patients with a comprehensive report, monitor their progress and answer any further questions. Additional appointments related to health promotion, disease prevention, diagnosis, care and treatment during health and all stages of acute, subacute and chronic illness are also included in the program.
