Posted by Dr. Ruth González on Mar 30, 2021 10:29:30 AM


Do you know the main differences between a traditional medical clinic and a medical concierge practice? In this blog, we explain some of the services that make a concierge medical clinic unique and attractive for some patients that are looking for better access, service and a more personalized medical experience.

As one of the first medical concierge clinics on the island, Pravan Clinic is proud to offer comprehensive support beyond what’s offered in a traditional clinical setting. With a focus on primary care and preventative medicine, we’ve built a model that gives our patients next-level access to our doctors, medical team, and additional supportive services.

Much like a hotel concierge, we give requests the priority they deserve, and provide fast-track access to deliver care with convenience.

This means that Pravan members have access to our medical team 24/7, either at our clinic, through our Mobile App, or via our Urgent Care services. We are also committed to providing the following services:

What is a Concierge Nutritionist?

Posted by Elizabeth Sands, MS, CNS on Sep 25, 2020 3:46:54 PM

There is an overwhelming body of evidence that connects the food we eat to our overall state of health. Considering this, it's surprising that we don’t have access to basic nutrition education at an early age, since understanding what a balanced diet looks like is critical for our wellbeing.

We believe everyone should have access to a nutritionist as part of basic healthcare. That's why at Pravan Clinic all of our members have access to unlimited visits with our Concierge Nutritionist, who works in collaboration with our primary care physicians to create a personalized health optimization plan, based on your goals and any health condition(s). Our nutritionist will take the time to get to know you, and will educate you on ways to nourish your body, mind and soul.

Whether you’re in need of a total overhaul or just a little fine tuning, we have the tools and resources to see you through your journey. As your trusted advisor, our Concierge Nutritionist can help you expand your knowledge and assist you in:

Concierge Doctors for Act 20/22 Residents in Puerto Rico

Posted by David Melchor on Dec 4, 2019 3:40:45 PM

It’s no secret that there’s been an influx of people moving to Puerto Rico from the mainland looking for warmer weather and lower taxes. The Puerto Rican government’s implementation of several tax decrees collectively known as Act 20/22, to incentive investors, business leaders and successful entrepreneurs to move to the island with their families and generate economic activity, has had a very real impact on our island.

With so many people moving here - and with the healthcare system becoming a major concern, there’s been a growing demand for certain needs to be met.

Getting Yourself into Shape with a Concierge Nutritionist

Posted by Leyda Figueroa RD, LND on Jun 25, 2019 10:12:10 AM

Believe it or not, nutrition involves a lot more than just a balanced diet. It dives right into the science of the foods that we eat, and helps to identify what our bodies actually need. There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ in terms of nutrition, as we all have varying needs. So how exactly can a nutritionist help, and how can you get into shape with the new concept of a concierge nutritionist?

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...

Pravan Clinic is here to change this scenario. 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. In short, we're here to flip the switch on your previous patient experiences.

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.
