The WellcomeMD Difference

The goal of concierge medicine is to re-establish the kind of personal relationship with your primary care physician that once prevailed in American communities, while taking optimal advantage of the many advances in treatment and technology that have been made since then. Becoming a WellcomeMD member improves your quality of life. This opens the door to greater access to your physician, more personal attention and improved health outcomes. WellcomeMD members receive individualized care with a comprehensive, proactive approach to your personal health.

At WellcomeMD, we emphasize our thorough annual physical examination, which includes a series of tests to chart changes in a patient’s profile. They are the foundation for effective health recommendations. Our monthly fee is comparable to what you pay for a cable TV subscription or cellphone service. Consider the cost of avoiding a preventable disease, the value of early detection of serious health problems, and ready access to a doctor who knows you, as well as medicine. The return on this investment will be apparent for many.

WellcomeMD's Approach to Concierge Medicine

WellcomeMD provides comprehensive, preventative and proactive care for all of our members. Our physician’s and their teams are committed to not only improving patients’ outcomes, but also improving their quality of life. We provide a conscientious standard of care in an unhurried environment, where the patients come first. WellcomeMD offers a wide range of services for our members.

You become a WellcomeMD member by enrolling with our doctor’s and pay a monthly fee. This membership fee is a departure from the way mainstream practices are organized, of course. But the fee allows a concierge doctor to see a much smaller number of patients. It provides more of that precious ingredient of quality care: the doctor’s time with you, and knowledge of your health history. WellcomeMD will make it possible for you to be in much closer touch with your doctor, via email and even by the doctor’s cellphone – you have the number. You will pay your co-pays, just as you do in a regular practice.

Services include:

  • 24/7 access to your physician
  • Physician driven individual health plan
  • Preventative, proactive care
  • Same day appointments
  • Thorough, unhurried appointments—minimum 30 minutes
  • In office lab evaluations
  • Individualized diet & fitness consultations
  • Physician liaisons with specialist providers
  • House calls when necessary
  • Courtesy hospital visits to local hospitals when necessary
  • Physician guided programs, such as walk with your Doc, understanding food labels and a variety of other topics
  • Facilitation of second opinions, visits to specialists with the patient

A Checklist for Considering Concierge Care

If you’re weighing the possibility of membership in a concierge practice, take a moment to answer these brief questions about your current health experiences…

  • Can I easily obtain a same-day appointment with my doctor?
  • Has my doctor worked out a list of health goals for me, and how to accomplish them?
  • Do I spend only a very few minutes in my doctor’s waiting room?
  • Is my doctor, or an on-call doctor, available 24/7?
  • Can my doctor greet me by name?
  • Is my annual physical exam thorough, and does the doctor go over the results with me, in detail?
  • Does my medical practice offer fitness and nutrition counseling in coordination with the doctor?
  • Does my doctor seem rushed during our conversations, with “one eye one the clock?”

WellcomeMD members can answer “yes” to every question/statement — except the last one! If any of your other answers were “no,” please call us at 888.531.3844 to ask further questions and to arrange for a visit. You’ll enjoy a free consultation with a WellcomeMD doctor, and a tour of our practice.
