Some of the services you will receive
as a member of my practice:
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 my team will take your call, with a real concern for your health and well-being.
- After hours for urgent issues. My personal cell phone number will be provided to you. This allows easy and direct phone communications for urgent medical problems that occur outside of my regular office hours. For emergencies, however, always call 911 first.
Little or no office waiting room time, and longer appointments.
Office visits will start promptly and appointments will be scheduled for approximately 30 minutes. Appointments for a comprehensive annual health assessment will be scheduled for approximately 60 minutes. My goal is to afford you the time to thoroughly address all of 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 occasional visits outside of our usual office hours, we will do our best to 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 that I already offer through my practice, I will assist you to identify and evaluate wellness providers and offerings. This will support your efforts to take an active role in managing and maintaining your good health.
Personalized hospital care.
Should you need to be hospitalized, I will make sure to communicate with you and to serve as an advocate on your behalf, even when you are admitted to a facility at which I do not have privileges or where I am not your attending physician.
Adult dependent children of members are welcome.
If a parent joins my personalized care practice, my pricing structure allows for participation by two (2) adult dependent children between the ages of 18 and 26 without a membership fee. Additional dependents are welcome and will be charged a reduced fee.
Long distance care.
Whether you are on a brief vacation or living some of the year in a second residence, I am available for consultation. However, if in my judgment you need to be seen by a local physician, you will be encouraged to seek medical attention. I will communicate with you directly, as well as with your treating physician as needed, to support the coordination of your care on health issues that may arise.
Care for visiting relatives and/or friends.
Should your out-of-town family or friends become ill during a visit to the area, I will be happy to see them in my office and assist with their medical care. I will treat them as though they were a member of my practice.
