For almost two decades, I have been practicing medicine, like a “small town doc in our big city.” Practicing medicine has always been very rewarding to me, but, in this current healthcare environment, it has become more and more challenging to devote the time and attention to every single patient that I would like. Consequently, as I continue to treat my patients in a comprehensive way, I constantly find myself caught up in a game of “cat and mouse,” running from exam room to exam room and working hard to limit long wait times. Practicing medicine in the way that I wish to is unsustainable in this increasingly complex healthcare system.
I have chosen to collaborate with Castle Connolly Private Health Partners, LLC (CCPHP) to create a new membership-based (concierge) practice, Liakeas CCPHP. Together with CCPHP, I will be able to provide members with extended office visits, 24/7 connectivity to me, same- or next-day appointments, health coaching, and other amenities and enhancements. This extended time with you, my patient, will allow me to discuss your health concerns in greater depth, better coordinate your care and be your personal health advocate.
