Below are a few of the many benefits you will receive as a member of my concierge medicine practice.

Timely office visits

You are able to see me on the same day or within 24 hours of your call. Your appointment time is honored and you will be seen promptly, in an unhurried fashion. I ensure there is ample opportunity to address your medical needs at each visit. In general, your annual wellness exam is 90 minutes and all other appointments are 30 minutes in length.

Direct access to me during office hours (and after!)

During office hours, my staff answers your calls directly and assists 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 directly on my cell phone for urgent issues at any time of the day or night whether you are at home or traveling.

Extended office hours and house calls

Office visits are best scheduled during normal office hours when the full complement of staff is available. However, should you require occasional visits outside of my traditional office hours, I will do my best to accommodate you. At my discretion, I will gladly visit and attend to you in your home.

Adult dependent children of members are welcome

If a parent opts to join my concierge medicine practice, I am happy to care for his/her insured adult dependent children between the ages of 18-26 without an additional annual fee.

Care for visiting family and friends

Should an out-of-town family member or friend become ill during a visit to the area, I am happy to assist them with prompt medical care as though they were a member of my practice.

Time and care specific to you

Every individual is unique…with their own history, health conditions, concerns, and emotions. I provide a comfortable and relaxed setting with quality time to evaluate your particular issues. I believe every patient needs someone to explain their medical issues and challenges in terms they understand. This includes being afforded quality time with their physician to ask questions. Using this time, I provide you with the information you need to choose the best options for your medical care.

A strong focus on long term health and wellness

I focus on prevention and wellness, not just taking care of you when you are ill. My definition of wellness includes fitness, nutrition, emotional well-being, and a clear understanding of all the health challenges you face. As my patient, you receive a summary of your expanded annual Comprehensive Wellness Evaluation. This summary is the cornerstone of your personalized wellness plan, created to keep you well-informed and focused on the goals we set together as a doctor-patient partnership. I also provide you with relevant educational information that will help you understand your role in our partnership.

Peace of mind

When serious illness and injury happen, I am there in the hospital, as well as in the office, to provide continuity of care with all medical professionals involved in your care. Additionally, I offer counsel regarding serious illness and end-of-life issues.

Personal Care and Commitment

As a member of my practice you will receive the same high standard of care I have always delivered to my patients. You receive my honest, compassionate and heartfelt dedication to your individual needs. The difference? You receive more of it.
