What is the difference between a physical and an office visit?

What is the difference between a physical and an office visit?

Preventive care (Annual Physicals, Well Child Exams, and Wellness Exams) are services to catch health problems early. Usually, these preventative services are covered by your insurance company with little to no out of pocket cost to you. The distinction between a “physical” and an “office visit” is especially important when we submit a bill to your insurance company for that visit. However, understanding what your insurance will cover at your preventative visit creates some confusion for many of our patients. Therefore, here are some clarifications:

What is preventative care?

A “physical” or “preventive health exam” is a thorough review of your general well-being. The doctor will review your medical problems, perform a complete physical examination and make recommendations concerning your health. This may include general recommendations regarding diet and exercise, age appropriate immunizations and cancer screening exams.

What is an office visit?

An “office visit” is an appointment time to discuss new or existing problems. The questions and exam will focus on the problems discussed. This is different from preventative care. Hence, if you schedule a physical but your appointment is spent on specific health issues or problem(s), we can no longer bill this as a physical, but instead, as a problem-focused “office visit”. Please do not ask your provider to change your office visit to a physical, change your diagnosis, and/or change the billing amount to your insurance company. This is considered “fraudulent” billing behavior by your insurance company and federal regulatory agencies. Meaning, what we bill to your insurance company for payment must be consistent with the visit notes and exam.

Some common preventative care services include:

  • Cholesterol screening
  • Colon cancer screening
  • Diabetes screening
  • Review of past history (surgical, family, social)
  • Immunizations
  • Routine physical exam
  • Fall risk screening
  • Depression screening
  • Dementia screening
  • Alcohol screening
  • End of life planning and DNR’s
  • Contraceptive and family planning/counseling
  • Contraceptive devices and contraceptive drugs

Additional Services for Women

  • Breastfeeding support, supplies, counseling
  • Prenatal care
  • Antepartum care
  • Routine mammograms
  • Routine Pap tests

For Children

  • Newborn hearing screening
  • Periodic well-child visits
  • Sexually transmitted infection (STI) screening and prevention counseling for adolescents
  • Vision screening

Eye Doctors

When it's time to get your eyes checked , make sure you are seeing the right eye specialist for your needs. Each member of the eye care team plays an important role in providing eye care , and they often work together in the same office. It's easy to confuse the types of professionals called "eye doctor" and their responsibilities in maintaining your eye health . Here's how they compare.

Ophthalmologist vs Optometrist: What's the Difference?

The levels of training and expertise—and what they are allowed to do for you—are the major difference between types of eye care professionals commonly called “eye doctor.”

  • An ophthalmologist is a medical doctor, and the only eye doctor with a medical degree (MD).
  • An optometrist is not a medical doctor but is often referred to as an eye doctor because they hold a doctor of optometry (OD) degree.

Ophthalmologists must complete many more years of medical training than optometrists and opticians.

As a result, an ophthalmologist is the most qualified among eye care professionals to diagnose and treat a wide range of eye diseases, beyond the routine eye and vision care provided by an optometrist.

Types of Eye Care Professionals

Here's how the role of ophthalmologist eye doctors compares with other members of the eye care team:

  • Ophthalmologists
  • Optometrists
  • Ophthalmic technicians
  • Ophthalmic technicians/technologists
  • Ophthalmic registered nurses
  • Ophthalmic photographers

Ophthalmologist: Eye Specialist With Advanced Medical and Surgical Training

An ophthalmologist is a medical or osteopathic physician who specializes in eye and vision care. Ophthalmologist eye doctors differ from optometrists and opticians in their levels of training and in what they can diagnose and treat.

Ophthalmologist: Education and training

Typical training for an ophthalmologist includes a four-year college degree followed by four years of medical school and at least four additional years of medical and surgical training. After completing this lengthy education—a total of 12 to 14 years—ophthalmologists are licensed to practice medicine and surgery. Ophthalmologists are the only eye care providers with the appropriate levels of medical education and clinical training to safely perform delicate eye surgery. This advanced medical training allows ophthalmologists to diagnose and treat a wider range of conditions than optometrists and opticians.

Ophthalmologist: Role in eye care

An ophthalmologist diagnoses and treats all eye diseases , performs eye surgery, and prescribes and fits eyeglasses and contact lenses to correct vision problems. Many ophthalmologists are also involved in scientific research on the causes and cures for eye diseases and vision disorders. Because they are medical doctors, ophthalmologists can sometimes recognize other health problems that aren't directly related to the eye , and refer those patients to the right medical doctors for treatment.

Some ophthalmologists are eye specialists in specific diseases

While an ophthalmologist is a medical eye doctor trained to care for all eye problems and conditions, some ophthalmologists specialize further in a specific area of medical or surgical eye care. This person is called a subspecialist . He or she usually completes one or two years of additional, more in-depth training (called a fellowship) in one of the main subspecialty areas such as Glaucoma , Retina , Cornea , Pediatrics, Neurology, Oculo-Plastic Surgery or others. This added training and knowledge prepares an ophthalmologist to take care of more complex or specific conditions in certain areas of the eye or in certain groups of patients.

Empowering lives: The transformative impact of ophthalmology

Optometrist: Provider of Primary Eye Care, Vision Exams, and Lens Prescriptions

Optometrists are healthcare professionals who provide primary vision care ranging from vision testing and correction to the diagnosis, treatment, and management of vision changes.

Optometrist: Education and training

An optometrist is not a medical doctor. An optometrist receives a doctor of optometry (OD) degree after completing 2 to 4 years of college-level education, followed by four years of optometry school.

Optometrist: Role in eye care

Optometrists are licensed to practice optometry, which primarily involves performing eye exams and vision tests, prescribing and dispensing corrective lenses, detecting certain eye abnormalities, and prescribing medications for certain eye diseases in some states. Many ophthalmologists and optometrists work together in the same offices, as a team. In the United States, what optometrists are licensed to do for patients can vary from state to state.

Opticians: Fit Eyeglasses and Contact Lenses

Opticians are technicians trained to design, verify and fit  eyeglass lenses and frames , contact lenses and other devices to correct eyesight. They use prescriptions supplied by ophthalmologists or optometrists, but do not test vision or write prescriptions for visual correction. Opticians are not permitted to diagnose or treat eye diseases.

Ophthalmic Medical Assistants: Help Physicians Examine and Treat Patients

Ophthalmic medical assistants work in the ophthalmologist's office and are trained to perform a variety of tests and help the physician with examining and treating patients.

Ophthalmic Technicians/Technologists: Assist With Testing and Minor Surgeries

Ophthalmic technicians/technologists are highly trained or experienced medical assistants who assist the physician with more complicated or technical medical tests and minor office surgery.

Ophthalmic Registered Nurses: Deliver Medications and Assist With Surgeries

Ophthalmic registered nurses are clinicians who have undergone special nursing training and may have additional training in ophthalmic nursing. They may assist the physician in more technical tasks, such as injecting medications or assisting with hospital or office surgery. Some ophthalmic registered nurses also serve as clinic or hospital administrators.

Ophthalmic Photographers: Use Cameras to Document a Patient's Eyes

Ophthalmic photographers use specialized cameras and photographic methods to document patients' eye conditions in photographs.

See the Right Eye Doctor at the Right Time

Without healthy vision it can be hard to work, play, drive or even recognize a face. Many factors can affect eyesight, including other health problems like high blood pressure or diabetes . Having a family member with eye disease can make you more prone to having that condition. Sight-stealing eye disease can appear at any time. Often vision changes are unnoticeable at first and difficult to detect.

If you've never had a complete,  dilated eye exam, the American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends that everyone have a complete medical eye exam by age 40 , and then as often as recommended by your ophthalmologist. Even if you're healthy, it's important to have a baseline eye exam by an eye doctor, whether ophthalmologist vs optometrist, to compare against in the future and help spot changes or problems.

There are many possible symptoms of eye disease . If you have any concerns about your eyes or vision, visit an ophthalmologist eye doctor. A complete, medical eye exam by an ophthalmologist could be the first step toward saving your sight. Use our search tool to find an eye exam near you .

  • We’ll list the different categories of individuals eligible for a PVP

How Blades Brown, 16, rallied to make the cut in PGA Tour debut at Myrtle Beach Classic

professional visit definition

Blades Brown refused to let his PGA Tour debut end after 36 holes.

The 16-year-old Brentwood Academy sophomore caught fire to make the cut at the Myrtle Beach Classic, shooting a 4-under 67 in Friday's second round to qualify for the weekend.

Brown made five birdies in all and closed with four in his final nine holes. That included back-to-back birdies on holes No. 6 and 7, part of his back nine after he teed off on No. 10 to start the day. He recorded just one bogey after making six in his 1-over 72 opening round Thursday .

"A wise man once told me that the tournament starts on the back nine on Sunday, and for me, I know today is not Sunday, but . . . that was the Sunday back nine for me," Brown said. "I just said, 'OK, whatever happens, happens.' "

Brown is 3-under 139 for the tournament and tied for 48th, up 41 spots from the first round. There were 70 players who made the cut, which was at 2-under. Chris Gotterup leads at 12-under.

Brown received a sponsor exemption to play in Myrtle Beach this week while the PGA Tour’s main event, the Wells Fargo Championship, is being played in Charlotte, North Carolina. He is the top-ranked golfer in the Class of 2026, No. 4 in the AJGA rankings and No. 176 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking.

He became the second consecutive 16-year-old to make the cut in a PGA Tour-sponsored event. England’s Kris Kim , 16, did so at last week's CJ Cup Byron Nelson. Miles Russell, 15, tied for 20th at the Korn Ferry Tour’s Lecom Suncoast Classic last month.

Brown got some motivation to start the day from his mom, Rhonda Blades Brown, a former Vanderbilt women's basketball player and WNBA New York Liberty star.

"I was like, OK, I can either make the cut or do homework tomorrow and feel bad about myself. My mom was kind of throwing that at me this morning, and I was like, all right, Mom," Brown said. "It definitely feels surreal. After I made that putt on 9, that little 2-inch putt, I was like, yes, I can go chill by the beach."

Brown began his back nine one shot below the cut line after a bogey on his ninth hole, but birdied two of his next three holes. He ranks 14th in the field with 10 birdies in two rounds.

He finished Friday above multiple past PGA Tour winners, including former Vanderbilt and Montgomery Bell Academy star Brandt Snedeker (5-over), Aaron Baddeley (1-under), Ryan Moore (1-under), Bill Haas (1-under) and Kevin Kisner (even).

"Yesterday was my first time ever playing a PGA Tour event, so I was a little nerve-wracked the whole day," Brown said. "Today I felt a lot better. Today I felt like I was playing golf that I know how to play."

His exemption at Myrtle Beach stems from his record-breaking performance in last summer’s U.S. Amateur, the nation’s premier amateur championship. He broke Bobby Jones’ record as the youngest medalist in U.S. Amateur history, tying for first place in the tournament's stroke play portion. Brown was eliminated in the match play portion in the round of 32 but earned recognition as one of the nation's top rising stars.

He became a client of Sportfive sports marketing agency and now has NIL deals with Callaway and New Jersey-based Transcend Capital Advisors. 

Brown has been on the radar in Tennessee for some time. He has won three consecutive TSSAA Division II-AA individual titles and last season set the Tennessee Junior Amateur Championship record for the lowest score in tournament history, finishing 22-under in 54 holes.

In 2023, he was the first to win Tennessee Boys’ Junior and Men’s Player of the Year honors in the same year.
