In a sea of impersonal doctors’ offices, how do you find a physician who truly understands your health and wellness needs in a setting where you can efficiently get those needs met? Membership with Edward S. Goldberg’s concierge practice is the answer. At his Upper East Side of Manhattan, New York, private medical practice, Dr. Edward S. Goldberg offers a refreshing alternative to the impersonal, rushed health care. As a concierge practice member, you benefit from 24/7 access to Dr. Goldberg and same-day office visits for urgent concerns. He coordinates every aspect of your care from routine screenings to vaccinations, and maintains front-line communication with all of your specialists.
What is concierge medicine?
Concierge medicine has been around since 1996. Also known as membership or boutique medicine, concierge medicine offers you highly personalized healthcare and greater access to your doctor.
Patients pay a fee to become concierge members and enjoy all of the benefits that come with the program. At his private practice, Dr. Goldberg offers annual memberships for local New Yorkers. Two-week memberships are also available for patients who may be in town for a short time or have pressing medical needs.
Included in your concierge care are:
- All office visits
- Annual wellness exams
- Detailed medical history
- Evaluation of your lifestyle, quality of life, and risk factors for disease
- Physical examinations
- Preventive vaccinations for flu, pneumonia, and other diseases
- Specialized evaluations like colonoscopies and endoscopies and CT screenings
Concierge medicine offers more personalized, holistic care based on your overall health and wellness needs and goals – not just the symptoms you’re experiencing at the time of your visit.
