Baptist Health Madisonville: Primary Care in Dawson Springs, Kentucky
Baptist Health Madisonville’s Primary Care in Dawson Springs, Kentucky HealthTalks Transcript
Maryssa Coyle, APRN, Primary Care, Dawson Springs:
Here in Dawson Springs, we offer a variety of services for our patients. We offer annual wellness visits, sick visits, and Medicare wellness visits, which are a little bit different from a regular annual wellness visit.
We offer visits like vitality exams for insurance, companies, or sports physicals. We offer a slew of things that you can get here in Dawson Springs, and you don’t have to drive a long way.
Annual wellness visits, also known as preventive care visits, are important because they promote health and prevent disease. I recommend patients come in once a year for these visits. During these visits, we measure their vital signs and do a physical examination. We discuss their past medical history, their family’s history, and we also do some blood work.
Your family medical history is important because when health problems run in the family, a patient would be at increased risk for those health problems. Those are things that we need to know and watch out for.
Here in Dawson, we have our own labs. You can get your blood drawn here right after your appointment. It’s very convenient. We also have X-ray, so if you were to need an X-ray, you can get that done right here.
I practice here in Dawson Springs. I actually grew up right down the road in a small community known as Rabbit Ridge. It’s just a privilege to take care of people in my own community and ensure that they stay in good health.
