Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently asked questions by patients of Encompass Health Partners.
Please contact EHP if your question is not listed in our FAQ.
We provide medical and preventive care for adult patients 18 and up and encourage a healthy lifestyle and health maintenance for every patient. We will make exceptions for some patients aged 16-18 after speaking with their parent/guardian. Adolescent medicine is a crucial transitional period that sometimes requires sub-specialty care. However, it is essential to develop an excellent physician-patient relationship at this age to facilitate long-term health.
EHP is a small practice, thus we do not offer the full array of vaccinations that might be available on site at a larger office. Dr. Kanal routinely provides guidance on age-appropriate and condition specific immunization recommendations as this is a part of routine preventive care. In general, influenza, pneumonia, and tetanus shots are available, but not for the 2018-2019 flu season ( will need to get supply orders figured out before we can provide a specific list of what we offer)
