Concierge Health Care Program

Preventive care

Perhaps the most important step toward optimal health is preventing potential problems altogether - then, if any arise, discovering and dealing with them as soon as possible. To that end, Seattle Premier Health provides thorough annual physical exams, health screenings and evaluations of your current state of health. Our physicians will then help you find the best diet, exercise and lifestyle to keep you on the road to good health.

Urgent care

If you have an urgent need - a minor injury, allergic reaction or severe cold or flu - we'll do everything possible to see you when it's convenient for you - on the same or next day to ensure you receive the care you need when you need it.

After-hours care

A Seattle Premier Health physician is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Should an urgent need or emergency arise, please call our office to speak with the physician. To ensure you receive comprehensive care, our physicians and after-hours staff have access to your complete electronic medical record.

If our physician believes you need immediate attention, you will be directed to the nearest emergency room and our physician will discuss your care with your emergency room physician. If you do not require urgent attention, our physician will advise you over the phone and arrange for a follow-up visit in our office as soon as possible.

Chronic disease management

The physicians at Seattle Premier Health are skilled in the management of common chronic conditions, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, arthritis, asthma, heart disease, osteoporosis and many others. Because we believe partnering with a specialist often improves health outcomes, we may refer you to a specialist skilled in your medical problem and work closely with him or her to optimize your health care. If you are already seeing a specialist whose care you trust and value, we strongly encourage you to continue to see him or her. We welcome the opportunity to work with your specialist to best manage your health.

If you suffer from chronic pain, our physicians will advise you about treatment options, including exercise, physical therapy, alternative therapies and non-narcotic pain medications. Please note that we will not prescribe or refill narcotics for chronic pain. If needed, we will refer you to a chronic pain medicine specialist.

In-office procedures

To provide convenient and comprehensive care, Seattle Premier Health physicians can perform many common diagnostic and therapeutic procedures right in the office. These services are covered in your monthly fee, so you'll incur no additional cost. Please note that your insurance company will be billed for all healthcare supplies and services you receive outside of our office, even if we order them. For example, services including review of specimens by an outside pathologist and medical supplies such as an IUD, splint or crutches will be billed to your insurance. Here's a list of procedures we provide in our office:

  • Abscess drainage and care
  • Anticoagulant management
  • Blood draw
  • Blood pressure check
  • Earwax removal
  • Endometrial biopsy
  • IUD insertion or removal (IUD not included)
  • Joint aspiration and injection
  • PAP smear
  • Pulse oximetry
  • Resting EKG (electrocardiogram)
  • Skin biopsy and other minor dermatological procedures
  • Splinting (with splints, braces or supports)
  • Strep throat screen (rapid test)
  • Suturing of minor lacerations
  • Toenail removal
  • Trigger point injection
  • Vaccinations (common)
  • Wound care

Imaging Services

Seattle Premier Health does not provide imaging services. If your physician recommends an X-ray, MRI, mammogram or other imaging service, we will refer you to the imaging center of your choice. Your insurance company will be billed for your imaging services.

Laboratory Testing

Lab specimens will be collected at Seattle Premier Health and processed by Dynacare/LabCorp. Your insurance company will be billed for all laboratory services performed.

Prescription Medications

Our physicians will write prescriptions for necessary medications to a pharmacy of your choice. Your monthly fee does not cover the cost of medications or medication co-pays; instead your health insurance will be billed.

Vaccines

Commonly prescribed vaccines are provided by Seattle Premier Health. These include:

  • Influenza (flu)
  • Pneumovax (pneumonia)
  • Hepatitis A
  • Hepatitis B
  • Tetanus/diphtheria/pertussis (whooping cough)
  • Zostavax (shingles)

We are unable to provide some immunizations required for travel out of the country. However, we will help you find a convenient travel medicine clinic where you can receive these immunizations.

Specialist care coordination

If we believe you would benefit from seeing a specialist, we will refer you to a highly qualified expert and make every effort to expedite your appointment. In addition, we will forward the pertinent portion of your medical record and consult with the specialist. After your appointment, we will review his or her findings with you, help you understand all your treatment options, offer our best advice and arrange for your follow-up care. If you'd like a second opinion, we can arrange for that as well.

Hospital care coordination

In the event you need hospital care, your Seattle Premier Health physician will arrange for your admission to Swedish Medical Center and review your hospital care. We will be in contact with your hospitalist (a hospital-based physician who attends to hospitalized patients). We will help you understand your tests or procedures, medications and treatment options. If you wish, we would be happy to provide updates to your family. Upon your discharge, we will contact your hospitalist to help arrange your follow-up care. If you choose to be admitted to a hospital other than Swedish, your Seattle Premier Health physician will not be able to supervise your care. We will, however, contact your hospitalist and we will be happy to communicate with your family as often as is helpful.
