About My Concierge Medicine Practice
I believe the patient experience begins from the moment you call my office. When you are in need of an appointment, you are seen promptly. When you enter the office, you are given a warm, friendly greeting in a soothing and inviting environment while receiving the highest level of medical expertise. During your office visit, you are the center of attention with your needs attended to because I consider you as a member of my extended family.
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 intend to ensure there is ample opportunity to understand and address your medical needs at each visit. In general your annual wellness exam will be 90 minutes and all other appointments will be scheduled for 30 minutes to allow enough time to address all of your needs.
During office hours, my staff answers your calls directly and will assist you with your needs. I encourage my patients to call with any questions regarding their health. If consultation with me is needed and I am unable to take your call immediately, I will return your call in a timely manner. After office hours and on weekends and holidays, you can reach me directly on my cell phone any time of the day or night whether you are at home or traveling.
We are fortunate to have at our fingertips other modes of communication besides a traditional telephone. I offer my patient the option for more convenient direct communication through email and text messaging.
I am board certified in Internal Medicine and Cardiovascular Diseases. As a cardiology and internal medicine specialist, you will not only receive my expertise in heart wellness and disease prevention, but also my full attention to your primary care needs. I have always preferred to take care of the whole patient – body, mind and spirit – as I believe these three entities should never be separated in the context of health and wellness.
My concierge medicine practice focuses on prevention, wellness and age management…not just taking care of you when you are ill. I recognize for those who truly value their health, having a physician as your advocate is the ideal doctor-patient relationship. You will receive an annual Comprehensive Wellness Evaluation, which will be the cornerstone of your personalized wellness plan created to keep you feeling your best.
If serious illness or injury should occur, I will be there in the hospital as well as in the office to help you navigate the maze of modern medical care. I will not only serve as your internist and cardiologist, but also as your wellness advocate and healthcare partner collaborating with other medical specialists who may be involved with your care. I will offer counsel regarding serious illness and end-of-life issues.
As a member of my concierge medicine practice, you can expect to receive the same high standard of care I have always delivered to my patients. You will receive my honest, compassionate and heartfelt dedication to your individual needs. The difference? You will receive more of it in a truly comprehensive manner.
