Lifestyle and Concierge Medicine
To Our Patients
There is nothing more important to us than the privilege of being your physician. We love helping and caring for our patients and we value the time we spend with each of you. We want to provide outstanding care to you when you are ill and we also want to help each of you become and stay healthier and enjoy your lives.
In the health care model today, there is barely enough time to address illnesses, let alone time to get to the root cause of illness and to promote overall good health. We are doctors who already spend much more time with our patients than most Internists. We see 10-14 patients a day, by choice, because we believe we need time to listen to and work with our patients in order to provide the best care. The average Internist sees 25-30 patients a day. We are not willing to practice this way. Unfortunately, our current practice model is not financially sustainable in the long run and we now want to spend even more time, not less, with our patients to prevent and reverse diseases in a natural way.
For the past two years, we have offered an optional concierge program called Princeton Lifestyle Medicine. This program has allowed us to spend significantly more time with our Lifestyle Medicine patients in the office, though email and phone hours each day. We have loved returning to the kind of practice where the doctor patient relationship is unhurried and more personalized, as it should be.
Our Lifestyle Medicine program has been a tremendous success and is growing. We believe that this is the only sustainable way to practice excellent, evidence based, personalized medicine today and in the future.
For this reason, we will be reducing the size of our practice and changing our practice model to a fully concierge practice as of July 1st, 2016. This will ensure that we always have enough time to spend with our patients. The fee for this program will remain $1200/year. Payment options are available.
We will be enrolling our patients on a first come, first served basis. Once our practice is full, we will close and offer a waiting list to those who are interested.
There are many other wonderful benefits to our program which are described on this website.
We will be hosting an information session where we will be available to speak with you in person and answer any questions you may have. Please feel free to call our office at 609-655-3800 if you have questions.
We look forward to a better way of working with you as partners in your care. We hope you will join us.
