Shared medical appointments
Shared medical appointments (SMAs) allow 6 to 12 people to gather in a supportive group to discuss common health concerns.
A family medicine physician leads SMAs, but you have the freedom to select the topics for discussion. Other providers, such as registered dietitians and pharmacists, may attend SMAs to answer your questions.
SMAs are entirely optional. You may benefit from a shared medical appointment if you:
- Have general questions about health issues such as diabetes, high blood pressure, depression, nutrition or weight loss.
- Want to connect with other people who share similar concerns and experiences.
Shared medical appointments are open to people of any age, whether they are new to Cleveland Clinic Florida or continuing care with us. The appointments last about 90 minutes and are billed to your insurance the same as a regular visit.
Ask your primary care physician if SMAs are offered near you and how to make your appointment.

Shared Medical Appointments
Physicians and other healthcare professionals are always seeking better ways to offer access to high quality care to our patients. That’s why Cleveland Clinic Florida now offers shared medical appointments (SMAs).
What can I expect at a Shared Medical Appointment?
During a typical SMA, 10 to 15 patients are seen together in a setting that encourages asking questions, and sharing concerns and experiences. Patients learn from the healthcare team and from each other in this environment.
Our patients have been overwhelmingly satisfied with the program. They enjoy the opportunity to relate to other people who are dealing with similar health issues, share stories and ideas, learn from one another and truly create a bond. SMAs are particularly valuable to people dealing with chronic conditions like asthma, diabetes and hypertension.
Matthew Goldman, MD is now accepting Shared Medical Appointments at the Parkland location.
