Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently asked questions by patients of Encompass Health Partners.
Please get in touch with 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 parents/guardians. Adolescent medicine is a crucial transitional period that sometimes requires sub-specialty care. However, developing an excellent physician-patient relationship at this age is essential 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 guides 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 (we will need to get supply orders figured out before we can provide a specific list of what we offer)
