Health Matters: Shared Medical Appointments and Hepatitis C Update

Shared Medical AppointmentsManaging a chronic condition can be difficult.

Medical appointments can be short and infrequent leaving patients on their own to deal with their health issues. How can you get increased face time with your doctor and get more in-depth information? The answer may lie in shared medical appointments. Small groups of patients and caregivers meet with a doctor together on a regular basis to learn from medical professionals as well as each other.

Tune in to Health Matters to hear Dr. Alexander Kuo discuss the ins and outs of these appointments and how they have impacted the lives of his liver disease patients. Dr. Kuo also discusses recent innovations in the treatment of Hepatitis C.
