Join us for a free lecture and individual breast cancer risk assessment, given by internal medicine physician and midlife women’s health expert Lisa Larkin, MD, FACP, NCMP, IF, August 11 from 10 - 11:30 am. (Read more...)

PRACTICE NEWS
We’re one-year old! You should have received our annual letter in the U.S. mail in mid-July offering highlights of our first year since we re-launched Lisa Larkin, MD, and Associates.  It’s been a terrific first year, and we thank you for your support and trust. Our goal is to continue to provide you the highest quality, evidence-based, personalized care to ensure you are living your healthiest life.

 

Annual Membership Renewals. If you are one of our patients who joined the practice last fall (before November) and opted to pay your annual membership in full, you should have received your annual renewal invoice enclosed in the annual letter. If you are a member paying month-to-month, your payment will continue as is.

Low-cost prescription medication, direct from our office!

We’re thrilled to announce that we now offer several low-cost prescription medications, dispensed from our office. Launching initially with 5-6 frequently prescribed medications (such as common antibiotics and maintenance medications) which cost just over wholesale prices - typically well below co-pay costs. Ask your provider for more information.
HealthSnap Tool Now Available

By now, you should have received via email information about HealthSnap Solutions, a new, online tool that we are offering to patients. The tool takes into account a patient’s lifestyle in addition to other factors, such as family history, to develop an overall assessment and health plan for preventing chronic illnesses. The process is simple. You’ll complete an online questionnaire via the HIPAA-secure portal, and you’ll also visit the office for a brief visit where specific biometrics will be taken. All your information is then used to generate a summary report. Based on your report, together, we’ll create a personalized wellness plan for areas that need improvement. If you have not received an email about taking the HealthSnap questionnaire, or if you are ready to schedule your initial biometric monitoring visit, please call the office at 513.760.5511.

NOW OFFERING: Virtual Visits

Starting in August, patients with minor medical concerns can conduct virtual visits (online, using your computer’s camera) with their provider without traveling to the office. Patients schedule by calling the office (although, we will have a mobile app available soon for scheduling.) 
NOW OFFERING:Botox – for cosmetic treatments and for therapeutic treatments for migraine headaches

We’re pleased to now offer BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA)  -- the only FDA-approved treatment to temporarily improve both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet in adults. Additionally, BOTOX® is the first and only FDA-approved preventive treatment for Chronic Migraine. Unlike acute treatments, which are taken to treat a headache or migraine once it's already begun, BOTOX® prevents headaches and migraines before they even start. BOTOX®prevents on average 8 to 9 headache days and migraine/probable migraine days a month (vs 6 to 7 for placebo). Watch our website for more information as we add this service for patients.


DIRECT PRIMARY CARE
Direct Primary Care Trumps The ACA For: Value, Quality And Satisfaction

"Direct Primary Care (DPC) is a practical solution that supplants the craziness in the current debate and, in a simple way, provides a clear path for patients to beat all the rhetoric with something valuable, practical, coherent and concrete – the physician-patient relationship. To put it simply – it aligns the incentives of physicians and patients to 1) take care of the patient and 2) fund that care."
