Q&A

How long does the annual checkup take?

It takes about 30 - 40 minutes to complete.

 

At the first appointment, you will fill out FirstMed Health Assessment Questionnaire and your General Practitioner will evaluate the basic function of your organs, address any concerns, provide preventive screenings and make health recommendations to lower your risk of chronic diseases. After the nurse takes your blood sample, you will be done and will wait for the email where we send your lab test results. 

How long does it take to have the lab results back?

Once the lab has processed the sample, FirstMed will send you an email with your results. The timeframe for your results to come back is usually 1-2 working days for blood and urine tests, but may vary based on the type of exam. Please ask the nurse or the customer care specialist at the time of your appointment how long the results should take.

What if my doctor refers me to a specialist?

If you are referred to a specialist, ask the reception about scheduling your visit. FirstMed has many specialists and will try to accomodate your availability.

How can I use my Cigna Card for the appointment?

Before your first visit, please send us a copy of your policy card issued by your insurance company and your date of birth. We will place it in your medical file and use it to set up direct billing.

What is there's nothing wrong with me?

If all your levels are within the normal ranges and your doctor makes no significant findings at your visit, then you're all set to go until next year's checkup!
