Have you ever…
- Wanted to see your doctor but couldn’t get an appointment in a timely manner?
- Been stuck waiting in a crowded waiting room?
- Felt rushed through a doctor’s appointment?
- Wanted a second opinion or trusted advisor to help you make your healthcare decisions?

If any of these have applied to you, or you are looking for a more personal approach to your healthcare, Be Well MD may be right for you.
For our concierge patients, same-to-next day appointments mean when you call your Be Well MD care team to request an appointment, you will be seen on that same day or the next day. We want you to have access to us when you need it. No more waiting to see a physician.
Concierge healthcare, sometimes referred to as private medicine, provides a higher level of care to its members. Concierge physicians work with a smaller number of patients than traditional physician practices, which enables them to spend more time with each patient to better customize the care to an individual’s health needs and goals.
Be Well MD is an outpatient primary care service. In the event that you are hospitalized, your Be Well MD care team can provide a second opinion or help you understand your care plan. Each hospital will have a hospital generalist who will help coordinate your care while you are an inpatient. Your Be Well MD provider will stay in contact with the hospital team until you return home.
During your first appointment, your Be Well MD physician will take time to understand your health status and goals. The initial appointments for in-home concierge patients typically last two hours and give Be Well MD a comprehensive look at your health. [See Getting Started to get more information on this initial assessment]
Once you complete the new patient form, we will contact your primary care physician or specialist and request copies of your medical records. This is typically done in advance of your first appointment so that the Be Well MD care team has a chance to review your medical history.
Be Well MD is an outpatient primary care service. If you require services that are typically not covered in an outpatient clinic such as lab work or diagnostics, we will work with you to schedule an appointment with an alternate provider. If these services are not in your current healthcare plan they will be managed and billed by the third party.
Be Well MD can serve one of two roles for you.
- If you do not have a primary care provider, your Be Well MD clinician can serve as your primary care provider.
- If you already have a primary care provider, your Be Well MD clinician can serve a consultative role working with your primary care provider and/or any specialists you see. Keep in mind, all Be Well MD providers are specialized in caring for aging adults.
Be Well MD believes in a comprehensive care approach. You will typically work with the same provider. However, if your provider is not available for an appointment you will be seen by another Be Well MD provider. The Be Well MD care team also includes nutritionists, health coaches and other healthcare professionals trained in senior care.
If you need to be seen by a specialist or need additional services not covered by our team your Be Well MD provider will help coordinate those services.
