Shared Medical Appointments

The shared medical appointment at the Women's Medicine Collaborative provides patients with more time with their physicians and other clinical team members. In this enhanced appointment, multiple patients meet with the provider as well as a medical assistant and group facilitator.  Along with receiving individualized attention, it is an opportunity for patients to help and support one another by sharing experiences.

Benefits to Shared Medical Appointments
