Are you a woman who prioritizes your health and wellness? Do you want more time with your primary care physician? Are you seeking a primary care provider who is women’s health trained and can address your specific needs? Are you looking for a provider who can give you the time, attention and access you deserve?
Most women answer YES to all these!
Ms.Medicine is a game-changer. We’re bringing new meaning to comprehensive women’s healthcare. Through our model, Ms.Medicine specialty trained women’s health doctors bring years of experience in internal medicine, heart care, weight management, sleep, urgent care, menopause management, sexual health, breast cancer risk assessment and prevention, cancer survivorship, genetics, gynecology, pelvic floor conditions and nutrition to each patient we serve.
We believe women need and should expect:
In medicine, the provider and patient relationship matters. As Francis Peabody said in 1927 “the significance of the intimate personal relationship between physician and patient cannot be too strongly emphasized, for in an extraordinarily large number of cases both diagnosis and treatment are directly dependent on it.” Yes, that’s right. Our priority is you, the relationship we build together and delivering excellent service. These are the pillars that lead us to have a long-lasting partnership with you.
In 1993, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Revitalization Act passed. This was a group of bipartisan legislators working with patients, providers, policy makers, and advocates to mandate inclusion of women and minorities in clinical trials funded by the NIH. This was progress. But today, more than 25 years later, women’s healthcare is inadequate.
For years, the quest to make healthcare efficient has led to a one-size-fits-all approach. We know this doesn’t work. That’s why we look deeper into the fundamental health differences between men and women and bring individualized care to those we serve.
Here are just a few health differences between men and women:
Practices are membership-based and charge an annual patient fee. This practice structure allows for longer patient appointments, enhanced access telehealth, email and cell phone access to your provider and improved healthcare navigation services.
More time with you brings value to your overall health and well-being. In addition to women’s primary and specialty care services, we focus on prevention and wellness. We know this leads to healthier behaviors and a better quality of life.
The Ms.Medicine approach helps reduce healthcare costs over the long-haul. By working to keep you healthy and out of the hospital, we’re able to lessen your need for emergency and urgent care visits. We also pass on greatly reduced cost savings for some prescription medicines, labs, diagnostic tests and other services.
Your time is valuable. We respect that and prioritize smooth operations, guarantee minimal time in the waiting room, on-time appointments and a live person who is familiar with you answers our phone.
A dedicated patient navigator facilitates priority diagnostic test scheduling, priority specialist referrals, home care services, home visits and family visits.
