About Concierge Medicine

The patient experience begins from the moment you call my office. You will be able to see me on the same day or the next business day when you need an appointment. When you arrive, you will be warmly greeted in an inviting environment and seen promptly, with little to no waiting time. Our visits will be conducted in an unhurried fashion, with an extended 60-minute visit for your Comprehensive Annual Health Assessment and all other appointments scheduled for approximately 30 minutes. At every visit, there will be ample time for me to understand and address your medical concerns and thoroughly answer your questions. You will be the focus of my attention with your needs attended to as if you were a member of my extended family.
I believe that each person is unique and there is no absolute approach when it comes to prevention and treatment. We will have the time to explore all factors that can influence your health and together we will determine the best approach for you.
You will always be seen by me…the doctor who knows you best. During my occasional absence from the office, a trusted colleague will be available for urgent issues.
During office hours, my staff will answer your calls directly and will assist you with your needs. I encourage my patients to call with any questions or concerns regarding their health. If consultation with me is needed and I am unable to take your call immediately, I will return your call promptly. After office hours or on weekends and holidays, you can reach me easily and directly on my cell phone for urgent issues, at any time of the day or night, whether you are at home or traveling.
My practice will emphasize prevention and wellness – not just caring for you when you are ill. We will work with you to assess your current health, level of fitness, provide weight management guidance and advice on leading a healthy lifestyle. We will provide a more comprehensive and continuous approach to your overall well-being, which includes a personalized plan and ongoing support. My assistants and I, trained as Health and Wellness Coaches, will assist in helping you reach your goals. We recognize that for those who truly value their health, a strong collaborative healthcare relationship is key.
You will have peace of mind knowing that we will be available to help you navigate the maze of modern medical care…whether it’s during office hours or after. We are here for you! We are “at your side” and at your service to help you manage both acute and chronic illnesses and guide you in prevention and wellness.
As a member of my new practice, you can expect to receive the same high standard of care I have always delivered to my patients. You will continue to receive my compassionate dedication to your individual needs. The difference? You will receive more of it…in a truly comprehensive manner.
