I've been practicing as an Internal Medicine physician in Pasadena, CA since 1994. During that time I’ve experienced practicing in a variety of medical practices ranging from a busy HMO based office, PPO/private insurance practice and now a concierge practice. I can truly appreciate the relationships I’ve been able to develop with my patients, as well as being able to provide a much higher level of service to them since the change to a concierge practice.
Since the transition to my concierge practice, I’ve been able to intervene and diagnose cases of cancers through one of the tests in the concierge physical. I have also been able to detect a serious cardiac condition. I’m certain that these conditions were all detected much earlier and managed much more efficiently than in a normal traditional practice. The ability to spend more time with each patient in a relaxed, non-hurried manner has been extremely fulfilling to me, and my patients have definitely benefited from the change.
My patients have truly been happy with the personalized care and feel that their health and wellness have been thoroughly analyzed. I have been able to be there for many patients when they had to make tough personal and family decisions. It’s extremely rewarding to know that I have made a positive impact on their lives.
