When should I go to the ER?

The emergency room is not a place to go for everyday medical problems such as the common cold, medication refills, or chronic pain. You should go to the emergency room immediately only if you are having a medical emergency.

An emergency is defined as a health problem that happens suddenly and has symptoms of enough severity, including extreme pain, that the absence of immediate medical attention could reasonably be expected to result in placing your health (or in respect to pregnant women, the health of the woman and her unborn child) in serious jeopardy or serious loss of function to some part of your body.

If it is not a true emergency, you should call your primary care provider (PCP) for assistance with non-emergent medical matters. If it is during the day, your PCP may tell you to come into the office for a same day visit or suggest an Urgent Care visit with a participating Urgent Care Provider. If it is after regular business hours, you can still contact your PCP. You may also reach a nurse 24 hours a day, 7 days a week through our Nurse Advice Line. To speak directly with a nurse about health-related matters, please call 1-844-259-8613.

Colorectal Cancer Awareness

March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. Colorectal cancer is cancer that begins in the colon or the rectum. It is the third most common cancer among both men and women in the United States and at more than 50,000 deaths per year in the United States, colorectal cancer is the second-deadliest type of cancer, after lung cancer.

Symptoms
Colorectal cancer, commonly referred to as colon Cancer, is one type of cancer that may or may not have any signs or symptoms. Some symptoms may include abdominal bloating, blood in stool, fatigue, unintended weight loss, or a change in your bowel habits (such as constipation, diarrhea, or narrow stools).

Screening Guidelines
The American Cancer Society has recently recommended that people of average risk for colorectal cancer begin their regular screening at age 45, as in 2019, they discovered an increase in colon and rectal cancer in younger adults. People ages 76 to 85 should speak to their doctor about whether or not they should be screened.

Take Action Today
The best way to get in front of any cancer is to be screened for it. There are many screenings available for colon cancer. A colonoscopy has been considered the best colorectal cancer screening test, because it gives your doctor a view of the entire colon. During a colonoscopy, the doctor can both find and remove polyps during the procedure. A colonoscopy is also the only test recommended for individuals who have colorectal cancer risk factors such as family history of the disease.

If you have any of the symptoms outlined above, or fall into the recommended age range for a Colorectal Cancer screening, talk to your Primary Care Provider today about the importance of being screened for this disease.

Wellness Schedule for Children

It is important for your child to receive regular preventative healthcare also known as Well Child visits. During a well child visit, your child’s pediatrician will review your child’s health, all aspects of their development, and provide any necessary vaccines. Your pediatrician may also screen your child for health problems; either through blood work or by asking health-related questions.

Below, please see a chart that includes when a child may need a well child visit, vaccinations, and/or a blood lead test. It is important that you keep your scheduled appointments for well-child exams. If you are in need of an appointment or transportation assistance with getting your child to their appointment, please contact our Customer Service Department today at 1-888-JAI-1999.


Preventive Care Guidelines for Adults

It is important that adults receive routine preventative healthcare each year. The table below outlines services that are recommended for adults by age as well as how often you should have them done. Please note that if PCP is noted below, it stands for Primary Care Provider.
