Concierge Medicine

Personalized care for you.

At NOVAMED Associates, outstanding care means much more than treating illness. It involves understanding the complex web of genetic, physical and emotional aspects that affects a patient’s health, educating on preventative measures and working together on individualized wellness plans.

This kind of care requires times and dedicated attention to the individual patient that is simply not possible in today’s healthcare system. Our practice size is smaller than a traditional practice which means we have more quality time together…not only to treat complex issues, but to focus on prevention and wellness.

As a member of our concierge medicine practice, you’ll receive truly patient-focused and personalized healthcare. Patients have peace of mind knowing that we will be there whenever needed, providing care in a highly personalized way.

Telemedicine Now Available

I am pleased to offer my patients the easy to use telemedicine option called Doxy.me as a convenient alternative to in-office appointments for check-ins, prescription refills and other routine matters. Doxy.me is accessed through a simple link that I’ll send by text or email before our virtual visit. All you need is a smart phone or computer with a webcam. While we can handle many issues via telemedicine, please note that symptoms such as chest or abdominal pain may require a physical exam. Please call my office first so that we may determine if a virtual visit is the best option for you.
