First, you and your physician will talk. In fact, honest conversations are the foundation upon which we build, well, everything. Your doctor wants to get to know you, inside and out. Thanks to smaller patient rosters, your physician will have time to do exactly that. (Your health coach will, too.)
Communication doesn't work if it's just one way. At PartnerMD, we believe in two-way communication because that fosters collaboration, an essential element in our approach. Always know that you're a full "partner" with your doctor and health coach. You'll work together to figure out the best way forward.
The result of this intense communication and collaboration is a plan tailor-made for you. Because after all, you are unique. Your wellness plan should be, too. We also understand that your needs will change over time, which is why we remain with you every step of the way to refine your plan.
Our physicals include the most advanced, state-of-the-art screening tools, which means your annual physical provides your PartnerMD physician with actionable intelligence. Year-to-year, it shows where you are on your wellness journey—and what roadblocks might be in the way. And like everything else we do at PartnerMD, we customize your physical based on your needs. Choose from three levels.
Your doctor spends a lot of time with you, discussing where you are and where you want to go. You and your doctor will talk about the results of your physical, your lifestyle, genes, family history, and any other variables that might influence your health. Your physician always makes recommendations based on your complete person—mind, body, and spirit. Meet our physicians.
What motivates you? What will help you make positive behavior changes? What barriers are in the way? Your health coach serves as the bridge between clinical care and wellness. Together, you and your coach will design a wellness plan that you feel good about. And unlimited coaching sessions means you’ll always have the support you need.
PartnerMD saved my husband’s life and my sanity. After several trips to the ER, being continually discharged by the hospital, and no one taking an interest in doing anything more than treating the symptoms, we reached out to PartnerMD. In one week, Dr. Cross and his nurse met with us for two hours, ordered several advanced scans, and we had a diagnosis of lymphoma. While we of course weren’t hoping for cancer, we’re relieved that we have a diagnosis and are quickly on the path to treatment thanks to the physicians, nurses and referral coordinators at PartnerMD.—Mary R
