When Mike showed up for his dental appointment he had no idea it would start with a blood pressure check, but he was thankful it did.
Mike had been irritable for weeks, but was unaware that his elevated blood pressure was likely the cause. When he was told that his elevated blood pressure would delay his dental treatment it added to his stress and anxiety. Our ability to offer Mike immediate access to behavioral health services turned his frustration and disappointment into gratitude.
Mike worked with one of Hunter Health’s behavioral health consultants and his medical provider on a treatment plan for hypertension. When he returned weeks later to complete his dental procedure, Mike thanked the dental team for caring about his overall health and wellbeing. Mike had noticed a change in his own behavior and was no longer feeling irritable.
