Scope of Services
 

All of the comprehensive, adult primary health care services summarized below are covered in this plan.  A drastically reduced patient load will enable me to offer superior, time intensive, personal medical attention to each of my patients.

 

 

Uncompromising Medical Care

 

Under this arrangement, I will provide you with unhurried office visits for  medical problems you develop as well as for periodic comprehensive physicals*. Constant emphasis will be placed on early detection strategies, health screening, wellness promotion and preventive health counseling. Office appointments will last as long as necessary to address your health care concerns.

Routine office procedures, such as EKGs, treadmill exercise testing, lung function testing, pulse oximetry, vaccinations and injections, will be included.

If ever you require hospitalization, I will admit you to Eisenhower Medical Center and provide daily hospital care, directing all in-patient diagnostic and therapeutic services to minimize your hospital length of stay.

Similarly, if the need arises, I will provide medical management and supervise nursing care for you at a skilled nursing facility or through home health care agencies.

When medically appropriate and necessary, I will make house calls.

 

Convenient Scheduling 24/7 Physician Access

 

Office appointments will be available on a same day basis, or scheduled on a day and time that you prefer. Meticulous time management will ensure that I will see you on time to prevent all waiting in the office.  Usually, you will be the only patient in the office during your visit!

In contrast to most medical practices today which impose barriers to effective patient-physician communication, you will have direct access to me at all times, for any medical issues, large or small.

After office hours and on weekends, your urgent calls will always come directly to me, either through a dedicated pager or cellular phone 365 days a year - and my response will be immediate. If you need to be seen, I will see you myself at any time. Only when I am out of town and not physically able to attend you will I arrange for another excellent internist-associate to provide for your hands-on care needs.

 

             Personal Physician Advocacy

 

Navigating the system of medical resources beyond my office can be complicated, slow and unsatisfying. My office will take care of all arrangements for you with medical subspecialists, surgeons, radiology and CT-MRI imaging centers, laboratory and diagnostic testing centers, physical therapists, nutritionists and pharmacies. I will be your personal advocate to facilitate and expedite your care. If it becomes necessary to refer you for consultation, I will carefully select specialists and medical providers with you and your specific problem in mind and I will personally contact them about your needs.

             If you spend part of your time away from the desert, I will initiate and maintain direct doctor-to-doctor communication with your home town physicians. I will keep all of your doctors current on your health status by telephone, mail or electronic data transfer. This form of ongoing collaboration is vital in assuring your year-round continuity of care.

 

 

 

*The annual fee is calculated to cover a comprehensive annual physical examination and the time equivalent of a one-hour doctor visit every week, allotted on an annualized basis. This exceptional allowance far exceeds even the greatest historical utilization of services (in-patient and out-patient visits) that I have ever observed in my practice. Services in addition to this will be billed on a fee-for-service basis.
