Shared Medical Appointments
Shared Medical Appointments (SMAs) are group appointments where patients with similar medical conditions or concerns meet together with a healthcare provider. These appointments offer a supportive and interactive environment, allowing patients to share experiences, learn from one another, and receive guidance from the healthcare provider. SMAs provide an efficient way to deliver healthcare, promote education, and foster a sense of community among patients facing similar health challenges.
