How do you stay involved in the community?
When my son was younger I coached his soccer team. I delivered the human development lecture series at my son’s school for his health class. I mentored internal medicine residents from the University of Arizona for 10 years. On our recent trip to Peru my wife and I volunteered our time in a medical clinic in a remote village. My wife and I are very involved with the Rider’s for the Cure. We train with our team to ride the El Tour de Tucson. El Tour is an annual cycling event that attracts 10,000 people. All the money we raise goes to Susan G Komen SAZ. Our team of 60 riders raised almost $50,000 last year. The money was used for a grant to provide transportation for oncology patients to get to treatment.
Why did you decide to become a membership-based medicine physician?
I have become disenchanted with the demands of seeing high volumes of patients and not being able to provide the high quality care they deserve. The limitations are simply time constraints and financial pressures that are incongruent with my desire to practice medicine the way I envision. This includes having adequate time and availability to address my patient’s needs. Health care needs to refocus on the patient.
"Be the person that your dog thinks you are."
I have been most impressed with his responsiveness after hours, via text. As a patient who takes care of an elderly parent who is also his patient, this service and attention to us has made a critical and positive difference for us.
Concierge Medicine Philosophy & Approach
We believe that medicine today should focus on prevention, early detection, wellness, direct patient care and spending dedicated time with patients. These are the tenets of concierge medicine. After years of private practice, physicians who transition to concierge medicine get to return to giving patients the type of care they envisioned when entering medical school. Learn More
