About Concierge Medicine
The patient experience begins from the moment you call my office. When you are in need of an appointment you will be seen promptly, in an unhurried fashion. During your office visit you will be the center of attention with your needs attended to as if you were a member of my extended family.
This will allow easy access to me for urgent medical problems that occur outside of my regular office hours. Ideally, I want to hear from you when you are ill or injured before you consider a visit to a hospital or urgent care center. However, for true emergencies call 911 first.
With the exception of your Comprehensive Wellness Evaluation, most office visits will be available on short notice, at your request, even for minor or non-urgent medical problems.
Comprehensive Wellness Evaluation appointments will be scheduled for approximately 60 minutes and all other appointments for 30 minutes, allowing adequate time to thoroughly address all of your questions and concerns.
Should you need to be hospitalized, I will remain involved in your care and advocate on your behalf. I will see you while you are at Sky Ridge Medical Center or Littleton Hospital and communicate regularly with the attending physician.
I believe that each person is unique and there is no absolute approach when it comes to prevention and treatment. We will have the opportunity to explore all factors that can influence your health, and together we will determine the best approach for you.
You will be able to see me on the same day or the next business day. Your appointment time will be honored and you will be seen promptly. I intend to ensure there will be ample opportunity to address your medical needs at each visit. In general, your Comprehensive Wellness Exam will be 60 minutes and all other appointments will be up to 30 minutes in length.
Early and late appointment times will be offered for your convenience. Should you require occasional visits outside of my traditional office hours, I will do my best to accommodate you.
I will serve as your wellness advocate and healthcare partner by providing proactive and comprehensive care coordination with specialists involved with your care.
You will always be seen by me…the doctor who knows you best. During my occasional absence from the office a trusted colleague will be available for urgent issues.
As part of my commitment to your long-term health and wellness, my philosophy is to educate you about your personal medical needs and risks. I will work with you to assess your level of fitness and emotional well-being, and determine an appropriate personal wellness plan. This will allow you to take an active role in managing and maintaining your best health.
You will continue to receive my honest, compassionate and heartfelt dedication to your individual needs. The difference? You will receive more of it.
If serious illness or injury should occur, I will be there to serve as your advocate and help you navigate the maze of modern healthcare. I would be honored to offer counsel regarding serious illness and end-of-life issues.
