Answer

When medical therapy is started, a follow-up visit should be scheduled after 1 month to evaluate the patient for side effects and reinforce the treatment plan. Follow-up thereafter can be every 3-6 months until the patient's condition is stable. Once treatment goals have been achieved, annual visits are appropriate.
