Nurse Practitioner Services

Primary Care Consultation and Services – SNVHS provides a range of primary care services, from annual wellness visits and preventive care, to acute and chronic care /management of illnesses. SNVHS can assist patients in having access to an ordering provider for needed labs, various therapies (i.e., physical therapy, occupational therapy etc.) or imaging. This bridging service closes the gap between the hard-to-reach medical provider(s) and a patient. Results are coordinated with the patient’s treatment team/primary care provider(s) (PCP) for treatment. SNVHS also works with specialty laboratories for more holistic and functional medicine approaches to wellness for patients. By utilizing a combination of Western medicine and ​Complimentary Alternative Medicine (eastern-based) approaches, patients are given a more holistic approach to their health and wellness. Moreover, SNVHS can assist patients to obtain needed referrals to specialists for their health care. We do provide referrals to all modalities of healthcare and wellness providers.  Accessing a nurse practitioner may help initiate effective communication between the patient and their PCP, and help the PCP initiate treatment and manage continued care. No insurance is accepted. SNVHS is NOT a CMS/Medicare/Medicaid provider. However our services are accessible to Medicare/Medicaid recipients, but are not reimbursable by CMS.  Employer-paid Direct Primary Care Contracts are available.

Injection Services – SNVHS offers a variety of injections services. Some patients require medications for supplementation, pain and/or general health. SNVHS provides access for patients to have these medications injected when doing it at home is inconvenient or not an option. This is also an option to learn the technique to do self-injections safely and correctly at home.       –  Medication Injection(s): This service would be for Vitamin B12 injection, testosterone injections or other types of injection administered medication the patient may need assistance with.       –  Trigger point injections (TPI) or bursa/major joint injection: This may be an option for treating pain in some patients. TPI is a procedure used to treat painful areas of muscle and fascia that contain trigger points, or knots formed when muscles do not relax. Trigger points may irritate the nerves around them and cause referred pain (pain that is felt in another part of the body).  The injection may contain a local anesthetic or saline, and/or corticosteroid or anti-inflammatory medicine. With the injection(s), the trigger point is made inactive and the pain is alleviated.  Injection of soft tissues (such as bursa) and joints are a very useful addition to physical or occupational therapies in combating musculoskeletal pain and disability. They are most effective when combined with rehabilitation regimens such as stretching and strengthening. Many patients benefit from injections with relief of pain, increased range of motion and improved activity. Bursa and joint injections are injections of a local anesthetic or saline, and/or corticosteroid or anti-inflammatory medicine into the joint, bursa, and/or tendon relieve inflammation/pain and help to restore function. Costs for injection services do not include the cost of the medication(s).
