Benefits Of My Concierge Practice

Some of the services you will receive as a member of my practice:

Improved communications.

My goal is to provide support, at any age or stage of health, in understanding personal values, life goals, and preferences regarding current and future medical care. During business hours. When you call my office during office hours there will be no recordings to navigate – only real people to take your call, with a real concern for your health and well-being. My personal cell phone number will be provided to you for urgent problems that occur outside of my regular office hours.

Little or no office waiting room time, and longer appointments.

Office visits will start promptly minimizing exposure to sick patients. Appointments will generally be scheduled for approximately 30 minutes, but some appointments (for example, a comprehensive annual health assessment) will be scheduled for approximately 60 minutes. My aim is to provide you with ample time to thoroughly address all your questions and concerns, regardless of the reason for your visit.

Extended office hours.

Office visits are best scheduled when the full complement of staff is available. However, should you require an occasional visit outside of my usual office hours, I will certainly do my best to reasonably accommodate you.

Strong focus on preventive medicine and long-term health and wellness.

As part of my commitment to your long-term health and wellness, my philosophy is to educate you about the importance of fitness, weight management, and healthy living. In addition to the clinical services, I already offer through my practice, I will assist you to identify and evaluate wellness providers and offerings. This will support your effort to take an active role in managing and maintaining your good health.

Personalized hospital care.

Should you need to be hospitalized, I will make myself available when I can to communicate with you and to serve as an advocate on your behalf. If you wish, unless hospital policy or protocol does not allow, I will do what I reasonably can to remain involved in your care, by making courtesy visits and/or communicating with the hospitalists or other attending physician who is providing services to you.

Adult dependent children of members are welcome.

If a parent opts to join my personalized care practice, I will be happy to care for his/her adult dependent children between the ages of 18 up to 26 without an additional membership fee.

With rare exceptions you will always be seen by me.

Unlike traditional primary care practices where you may need to schedule an appointment with the first available doctor, you will always be seen by me. During my occasional absence from the office, a trusted colleague will be available for urgent issues.
