Primary Care Physician Services
Primary care is the care you receive from your “family” or “private” doctor. This typically can be a family doctor, “GP”, or Internal Medicine doctor. He or she should be the doctor that knows you best and is available when you are sick or have a question. He or she should have time to spend with you when you need them and should be the first person you think about calling when you are ill. Primary care includes the promotion of your health through yearly physicals, screening test for cancers, and education about weight control, diabetes and vitamins. Primary care physicians also help diagnose and treat acute illnesses like colds, allergies, and joint pain, and more chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, gout, high blood pressure, and bowel disease.
Viva Med’s concierge Primary care services includes many ways to promote and improve your health, just as you a traditional doctor who takes insurance does, but we do it with style! We concentrate on you, not on what your insurance company says it will do for you. We want you to get healthy and stay healthy. Viva Med’s concierge Primary care services does so much more. It puts you in charge of your health and gives you a private doctor that works just for you, not your insurance company.
Viva Med will work closely with you to develop your care plan, and help you make the decision you need about your health. We spend more time with patients and really listen to them on a daily basis. Your appointment times are up to 30 minutes. Need more time to talk about a sensitive issue, we can schedule more for you. Whatever it takes to help you make the best decision possible for your health. When was the last time your insurance was able to do that?
Are you too busy to come in to the doctor’s office? Ever think hours are not conducive to your schedule? That where the concierge service of Viva Med comes in. We have digital means to communicate with your through your phone and other devices. All members have 24-hour phone access to Dr. Lacroix’s cell phone for night and weekend emergencies. We want to keep you out of urgent care and the emergency room.

If you are looking for something different in healthcare that puts you first, and not your insurance. If you want to be treated like a person, and not a number.

Or concierge style care gives you a years’ worth of compassionate care with as much access as you need for less than 1 ER visit.
