A group medical visit is an appointment with the entire Bipolar Clinic team and involves interaction with other patients as well as with clinicians. We require that all patients who are followed in the Bipolar Wellness Clinic schedule a group visit at least once every 3 months in order to continue to get medication refills. You are not required to attend either the educational or support group portion of the visit if you prefer not to. We do believe that the information you will receive during the educational sessions will help you to manage your bipolar symptoms and strongly encourage you to attend whenever possible. Many patients also benefit from attending the ongoing support group.
