OPTIONAL MASKING at Cadillac Family Physicians:

Effective 4/10/2023, Cadillac Family Physicians began optional masking for Providers, Patients, and Staff.  When scheduling an appointment, you will still be asked if you have any known upper respiratory symptoms.  If so, you will be scheduled with a Provider in our private entrance exam room or offered a virtual visit.
Masks are required in the private entrance exam rooms due to the possibility of contagious symptoms.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation.  – Cadillac Family Physicians Team.

Staying Healthy – Your Wellness Visit Explained

Medicare has the annual benefit of a wellness visit. This is a covered benefit that
will now be done at one of your routine appointments with your primary care
provider. It will include questionnaires sent in a Phreesia text message or email.
Completing the information in advance will save time during the visit. Your
answers are sent electronically to your provider team for review. During the
rooming process, screenings for recall and movement will be performed. The visit
is intended to allow your Provider to better respond to your health needs as they
change over time.

988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline

Immediate mental health support and counseling is now available through a National 988 call network.

The 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline is a 24/7 toll-free nationwide hotline, made up of a network of independently operated and funded local call centers (200+) across the country.

988 is the new three-digit dialing code connecting people to the existing National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (NSPL), where compassionate care and accessible support is available for anyone experiencing mental health-related distress—whether that is thoughts of suicide, mental health or substance use crisis, or any other kind of emotional distress. People can also dial 988 if they are worried about a loved one who may need crisis support.
