About the Practice
We specialize in caring for residents within an independent living, assisted living and long-term care communities. These residents often have different health care goals and needs, along with a unique set of functional, cognitive, and medical challenges. Our innovative medical model has reduced hospitalizations and emergency room visits, as well as helped our patients better manage their chronic medical conditions. At Generation VIPCare, we are our members’ advocates and take care of them with compassion, understanding, respect, dignity, and attentiveness. We work closely with other healthcare providers so that our members and their families can have peace of mind through their healthcare journey. That is our commitment.
Members and their families will be delighted by the Generation VIPCare CARE philosophy. They will have 24/7 access to their physician, who knows them and their goals of care and offers the high-touch, responsive medical attention they need. Our concierge practice is intentionally designed to provide a personalized, white-glove experience for this special population. We guide our patients and their families through key medical decisions that need to be made in the context of a highly complex healthcare system so they don’t have to walk alone. We are restoring medicine to the way it is meant to be practiced.
One of the most serious flaws in our healthcare system is the lack of coordinated care for someone who does not have an advocate who can provide critical information about a patient if they are unable to do so because they are physically, emotionally or cognitively impaired.
We are here to listen to your concerns and guide you in the right direction. Better healthcare and advocacy is now possible with our team of physicians who come to you! The quality of care, access to your doctor, convenient visits, and coordination you’ve been looking for has finally arrived.

Philosophy of Care:
My philosophy of patient-centered care is based on closely listening to my patients and aligning my medical expertise with their goals of care. Each older adult has a unique healthcare journey that can benefit from the medical responsiveness, presence, and collaboration central to Generation VIPCare’s model. My passion for caring for seniors motivates me to take the time and effort to get to know my patients well. By meeting them where they are at, I am able to proactively provide care to help my patients live life to the fullest.
