Christmas Day doctors appointment
We believe our approach reduces your total out-of-pocket medical costs WITH better care.. We provide MORE care and attention than most insurance companies expect. That means we KNOW you. We don't order unnecessary tests, avoid unnecessary ER trips, and reduce hospitalizations. This is not defensive corporate medicine. And YES, this photo is Christmas Day (shared with the mom's permission)
Our medical staff puts forth their experience and un-rushed time with the patient versus the computer-driven, formulaic, mega-test, assembly line approach of insurance companies, medical conglomerates, and BIG PHARMA companies.
One of our first patients said this is "...the best upgrade of your life." Our concierge medical team sees you at your home or your office.
This is how a typical concierge patient in moderate health starts with us:
Going forward: you have 24/7 phone access, never rushed, same day or next day appointments in your home or your office.
Our concierge patients want more than superficial answers. Like you, they want the time to discuss their medical options in a calm and thoughtful way.

Medicine has changed over the past 20 to 40 years with massive additions of technology. The cherished doctor-patient relationship has evaporated, faded out and mostly vanished.
We do better. Our patients feel connected to their physician.
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.” - Jerald Winakur MD
It’s a heck of a job. We love it.
That means that, yes, we will get out of bed at 3 AM 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.
#1: Many folks hate individual or Covered California PPO insurance because they CAN’T find a primary care doctor — especially one that they love in-network.
#2: The coverage for prescriptions, lab tests, specialists and hospitalizations in most PPO or Covered California plans is OK for what many people want, other than perhaps the size of the deductible.
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.
Call and we'll help.
