How Coordinated Care Can Save Your Life

Posted by Elizabeth Sands, MS, CNS on Jun 5, 2019 6:48:10 PM

Puerto Rico's healthcare system has fallen behind. If there is one thing in this world that is priceless, it's your health. As technologies and knowledge evolve, so does the practice of healthcare. Each and every person is different, and although one may seemingly experience the same thing as another person, their needs can be vastly different depending on their situation and support network. This is when coordinated care comes into play.

Concierge Doctors Who Work For You

Posted by Elizabeth Sands, MS, CNS on May 17, 2019 2:20:18 PM

You awake suddenly with sharp abdominal pains. You've been experiencing digestive issues recently, but nothing you've lost sleep over, and nothing as intense as this. You start to think the worst, and a Google search of your symptoms does nothing to calm your fears. Then you remember you'll be traveling in a few days, and realize you'll need to sort this out ASAP. The thought of an ER visit even crosses your mind, but you know this may mean several hours of waiting time, not to mention an unreasonable hospital bill. You hate the idea of this, but you're feeling pretty desperate at this point...

Our modern medical practice delivers quick access to Concierge Doctors and personalized health care around the clock. Our HIPAA compliant mobile app and state-of-the-art medical clinic are backed by the level of medical professionals and customer service you deserve.

Empowering Women Towards Better Health

Posted by Elizabeth Sands, MS, CNS on Mar 15, 2019 7:33:09 PM

We've noticed that many of our patients don't make it to their annual gynecologist visit, even when they clearly recognize the importance of this appointment. An annual gynecological exam is a fundamental part of preventive medical care for women, and is critical for identifying any risk factors for disease (cancers, in particular) as well as detecting any existing medical issues. This is an appointment to make, not miss!

Having said this, we understand why it happens. When you're busy balancing work, family, or just life in general, it's very hard to consciously commit to spending hours or more waiting to see a physician, which is typically the case in Puerto Rico. We know you’ve got a lot going on, and the last thing we want is for your hectic schedule to prevent you from taking care of yourself.
