How do Wello home visits work?
Need a hands-on health assessment? As well as offering consultations by video and phone, Wello’s Nurse Practitioners can also visit you in the comfort of your own home.

They’ll bring all the tools to assess your specific health issue, and the same calm, professional manner you’d expect in any medical setting. They’ll discuss the symptoms that are worrying you, and physically examine you to get a better idea of what’s ailing you.

To build a comprehensive picture, your Wello Nurse Practitioner will also talk to you about your medical history. They might ask about the conditions that run in your family, the medications you’re taking, your past surgeries and allergies. This information, along with their observations and any additional lab work, is all vital in piecing together a diagnosis and a treatment plan that’s right for you.

If you need a small procedure such as pelvic exam, wound dressings or stitches, our Wello Nurse Practitioners can also do that for you on the spot. If a blood test is required, they can quickly take the blood in a completely sterile manner and deliver it to the laboratory for you afterwards.
