"...the best upgrade of your life"

  Custom, private, in your home or your office
Medicine has changed over the past 20 to 40 years with massive additions of technology — and almost complete loss of that deep personal doctor-patient relationship cherished by so many families.  

We feel that our patients uniquely receive both, thanks to our approach.   

Our medical staff feels this quote from a Washington Post article sums it up nicely:   As a physician “….I would reinvent myself today as a “confidentialist”.  Someone who has the time to really get to know a patient.  Someone available to be confided in.  An advocate, not just for the moment, but across time.  An explainer about what’s wrong; an educator about what will help and what will not.   Someone who has the knowledge and confident wisdom to stand down the legions of specialists with the scalpels, catheters and scopes; the backbone to stand up to bottom-line toeing administrators and self-serving insurance execs and policy wonks.”    (Article link at the bottom of this page)

It’s a heck of a job.  We love it.

This is what our concierge patients ask us to be for them.  Deliver personal care and treatment that is focused on them and their loved ones.  Excellent care delivered throughout the year in the privacy of your home or office, 24/7, whenever needed.   That means that, yes, we will get out of bed at 3AM and come to you.   We will even listen to you at 3 AM.

If you want this relationship, then it’s time for an honest discussion about how to have a private physician 24/7 and still leverage ObamaCare or an individual PPO insurance in YOUR favor for a change.

The challenges:
#1:  Many folks hate individual or Covered California PPO insurance because they CAN’T find a primary care doctor — and especially not one that they love in-network.

#2:  The coverage for prescriptions, lab tests, specialists and hospitalizations in most PPO or Covered California plans does what many people want reasonable well, other than perhaps the size of the deductible.   

The fix:
Smart patients are combining our individualized concierge service in their home — WITH their major medical PPO insurance or Obamacare PPO plan backing us to cover hospitalization, specialists, labs and medications.

We discovered that many people can actually save money as soon as they remember the size of their deductible.  It’s clearly more satisfying medical care.
Folks tell us they are interested in controlling the cost of their medical coverage by structuring a plan that reflects their own use of medical care.

Today we customize a variety of plans, all with extended access to our medical team. 

This is our private practice — we don’t take a dime from any insurance company — so you can have it your way.  It is a plan that is as custom and unique as you want it to be.  

We can build this several ways starting with:
-- a fee for service plan minimizes your initial outlay,
-- or an annual retainer that makes primary care costs predictable.
 
Have it your way.  You'll have an initial medical evaluation, and then we will discuss how to structure a plan that meets and exceeds your needs. 

We are also open to discussing new requirements that you might bring to us.
