We run a "concierge" type medical practice next to Swedish Medical Center on First Hill. We charge patients a monthly fee in addition to regular insurance. With that extra funding, we're able to provide a much higher level of personal service and medical care than you can obtain in the traditional insurance-only system. We see about eight patients per day instead of 25-30 which is typical in primary care these days. You can email your doctor or talk to him on the phone. Office visits can last 30-60 minutes and longer if needed. It is easy to be seen on short notice. Most folks can get an appointment the same day or next day after they call. We are signed up on all the major insurance plans.
Our website explains the practice model and cost in more detail. If you are interested in this sort of medical care, feel free to call the office and set up a no-cost, no-obligation "meet and greet" to determine if it would be a good mutual fit.
We manage the usual range of problems in primary care internal medicine.
High blood pressure
Anxiety and depression
...and so forth
