Typical questions about membership
How does a personalized medical practice differ from a traditional medical practice?
We restrict the number of patients to allow more focused time for each patient which results in finely tuned, customized medical care. My patients can address all of their health concerns with me and office visits are never rushed. I have the privilege of knowing all of my patients and can take the extra time for a proactive approach to wellness. The result is a reduced need for visits to specialists and better overall health. I am also readily available for my patients—even on weekends or holidays—something that you won’t find in most traditional medical practices.
What does the membership fee cover?
Members of our practice receive easy availability to me by phone, text, email or Skype plus same or next-day appointments with little or no wait time, and longer unhurried visits with me. I’m even available for you when you’re traveling or out of town! In addition, you will have access to advanced testing, screening and diagnostic tools, on-site blood work, expedited call-backs, and my direct, personal communication with your specialists or other providers you see.
Will I still benefit from being a member even if I don’t expect to need frequent medical attention?
We shouldn’t wait to get sick to see our doctor. Many people believe they should only treat illness when it happens, instead of identifying and preventing disease before it starts. My unique approach to wellness explores your personal and genetic risk factors for disease and then develops a specialized plan to keep illness away. Don’t wait for a problem that needs to be fixed. Our in-depth, advanced testing, genetic work-ups, and extensive history and physical assessment can tell us a great deal about what’s happening deep inside your body so we can prevent illness or stop disease in its tracks.
