5 Main Advantages of Concierge Medicine

Posted by Elizabeth Sands, MS, CNS on Jul 19, 2019 5:47:23 PM

Ever feel like your doctor doesn’t spend enough time with you to know what exactly your problem is? Most physicians currently try to see as many patients as they can in a day, which can lead to some severe issues. A doctor who spends less than 10 minutes with you will not have the best idea of what is going on with your health. There is a better way to get the type of healthcare you need and deserve, and it is known as Concierge Medicine.

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.

With your Pravan Clinic membership, we will help you get up-to-date and stay on top of the appropriate preventive health maintenance required for your age and gender. From the services included in your membership and services offered by specialists we refer to, we will manage your health needs.

Why Generation X Avoids Dr. Check-Ups

Posted by Marta Picaporte on Aug 31, 2018 5:48:30 PM

If you're like me and were born between 1965 and 1980, you probably suffer from generational middle child syndrome. Generation X is the shortest spanning generation sitting between the Baby Boomers and the Millenials. Generation X is currently facing a mid-life crisis.

Concierge Medicine may be the answer for Act 20/22 residents.

Posted by David Melchor on Jul 6, 2018 1:34:35 PM

Over the last few years we have seen a growing trend of people moving to Puerto Rico from the mainland looking for warmer weather and lower taxes. A few years ago the Puerto Rico government implemented several tax incentive 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. After being in effect for a few years, there are more than 1,000 individuals who are now Puerto Rico residents benefiting from the tax decrees.

Finally a Concierge Medical Clinic in Puerto Rico

Posted by David Melchor on May 4, 2018 5:19:01 PM

It’s 11pm and you’re losing sleep over what-ifs. You feel fine, but there is that one thing that runs in your family. Or maybe you don’t feel fine. Was it the sushi? Or that bug that took down half the office last week? You start feeling worse and the thought of going to an ER crosses your mind. What should I do? If I go to the hospital, it is going to be a nightmare with several hours of waiting time.  That doesn't sound like a pleasant experience...

IV Vitamin Drips: What's with the trend?

Posted by Dr. Tania Rivera on Feb 10, 2018 9:00:00 AM

Background

An IV vitamin drip refers to the process of providing concentrated levels of vital nutrients directly into the bloodstream.  When nutrients like vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids are injected directly into the bloodstream, they bypass the digestive system and are pushed directly into cells where they can be more effectively utilized by the body.
