"Visits" is an all-encompassing term for an office visit of
any sort: H&Ps, chronic care follow-ups, follow-ups
for an acute problem, urgent care, and pap smears.
- Diagnostic Tests
Diagnostic Tests include any tests performed by a doctor to make a
diagnosis, like taking your blood pressure for example.
Procedures are used to actually treat you, and include certain injections
or removing minor skin lesions.
There are many important services that may or may not involve
an office visit, like getting prescriptions or lab orders.
