Wellness Care Q & A

What is wellness care?

Wellness care refers to the steps you take together with the Terry L. Franklin, MD, team to support your physical, mental, and social well-being. This aspect of your medical care focuses on preventing disease, making choices that support your health, and obtaining the integrative services you need to maintain a thriving and fulfilling life.

How does a wellness coach help me?

Your wellness coach performs a health risk assessment, evaluates your diet and exercise habits, reviews your medical history, and learns about your current physical and emotional state.

After obtaining the information, they help you set goals for what you want to improve on the path to wellness. Once you have goals, your wellness coach works with you to create a wellness plan. 

Your plan isn’t generic and easy to ignore. Rather, it contains a step-by-step plan using sustainable strategies for reaching your goals.

In some cases, you need to take action to accomplish new milestones toward health. Other times you may need to remove the things in your life that interfere with maintaining your health.

Your wellness coach supports, empowers, and motivates you to continuously reach for optimal wellness.

What services might I receive during wellness care?

Your wellness program is always individualized to achieve your goals. Your wellness coach at Terry L. Franklin, MD, may provide services such as:

  • Diet evaluation
  • Nutrition counseling
  • Weight loss management
  • Diabetes education
  • Stress management
  • Hormone balancing
  • Chronic disease management

Your goals may incorporate changes to improve your mental health, emotional health, or work environment.

When should I consider getting wellness care?

There are many personal reasons you may need wellness care. You may simply feel like you’re not living your best life, or that you’re always stressed or fatigued.

Some people seek wellness care when they want to make a change such as stopping smoking. Or you may have recently learned you have a medical condition and you want the extra support to help you make the lifestyle changes needed to heal.

You could feel great and want to keep it that way, so you want a wellness coach to help identify areas in your life that can put your health at risk. 

A physician monitors your wellness care and is billable to most insurance plans. To schedule an appointment, call Terry L. Franklin, MD, or book an appointment online.
