YourMD is your personalized medical care program. Since our doctors treat a small number of patients, they are able to spend more time discussing your health issues and concerns. And because YourMD does not involve insurance companies for payment, you and your doctor will work together to set a course for your care without the limitations imposed by traditional health insurance plans.
YourMD is a custom care program based on a proactive and preventative approach to managing your health, keeping you well and enjoying a healthier more fulfilling life.
It all starts with “the baseline” - an Annual Comprehensive Physical Exam and Evaluation:
- An extensive evaluation of your current health, lifestyle, nutrition and stress levels.
- Risk Factor Assessment based on your medical history, lifestyle and your family’s medical history
- Comprehensive Blood Work: complete blood count (CBC), chemistry panel (liver function, kidney function and electrolytes), lipid panel, thyroid test, prostate blood test, and urinalysis
- Vision Screening
- Electrocardiogram (EKG)
- Lung Function Testing called 'Office Spirometry'
- Pap Screening / Prostate Screening (when appropriate)
- Follow Up Appointment to review test results in relationship to your healthcare goals; and in partnership with your doctor, set-up a custom care game plan for the year.

Peace of Mind

- Hospital visitation/coordination of care when necessary (up to 10 days)
- YourMD is your 12-month calendar year; it begins with your first appointment
- Phone consults – sometimes things can be handled with a phone call, eliminating the need of an office visit which saves you time
- Blood draws often performed in the office
- Referrals often seen within 24 - 48 business hours
- Negotiated cash prices on many lab services and diagnostic studies
- Covered parking space
- Private entrance/exit
- Visiting guests can be seen for a nominal fee ($200 + incidentals)
Annual retainer fee is $2200 for family member; $1500 for the first child (under 18); and $1000 for second child. The fee can be paid in full or in semi-annual or quarterly installments. (Installment payments are subject to a $50.00 fee, per installment.)
Your insurance will come into play to cover costs outside what is included in the annual YourMD retainer fee. For example: X-rays, blood work (additional to Comprehensive Physical or patient specific), seeing a specialist, hospital stay, etc.
Please note: YourMD does not take the place of traditional insurance. If you do not have traditional insurance, we highly recommend an individual policy or catastrophic care policy to financially safeguard you and your family in the event of a hospitalization, surgery, etc. You can contact us for advice on this.
