Welcome to my Concierge Practice
What is concierge medicine?
In a concierge, or membership, medicine practice, the doctor makes a commitment to limit the number of patients to ensure adequate time and availability for each patient, and to provide an enhanced level of care.
Extended, unrushed visits enable physicians to spend meaningful time with patients, build relationships, and provide more comprehensive, proactive care than in traditional practices. To make this possible, the patient pays an annual fee.
Why are you converting your practice to concierge medicine?
I love practicing medicine. What I like most is the ability to connect with patients, interpret their needs, and provide just the right amount of guidance. However, my concern with healthcare today is the lack of time… There is never enough of it to do as much as I’d like for every patient and care for them proactively, not reactively.
A concierge practice, with ample time to focus on preventive measures and wellness, has proven to be one of the most effective models for maintaining health. The extra time allows for giving the proper attention when illness does occur.

The Benefits of Concierge Medicine
Prevent ER visits.
Health can be unpredictable, and if an illness or accident occurs over the weekend, I will be available by phone for immediate advice. If the issue can be quickly and efficiently handled at my office, I will make arrangements to meet you there and eliminate the need for a trip to the emergency room or urgent care clinic.
With rare exceptions you will always be seen by me.
Unlike traditional primary care and pediatric practices where you may need to schedule an appointment with the first available doctor, you or your child will always be seen by me.
Extended office hours.
Office visits are best scheduled when the full complement of staff is available. However, should you or your child require an occasional visit outside of my usual office hours, I will do my best to reasonably accommodate you.
24/7 direct communications.
After hours, for urgent issues you can reach me by personal cell phone, email or text message.
Little or no office waiting room time, and longer appointments.
Office visits will start promptly minimizing exposure to sick patients.
If you or your child are ill and unable to come to the office, a house call may be offered. The need for each out-of-office visit will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
“As a new parent, there’s always something you need to ask about and it’s never at a convenient time of day. No matter how many books you read or fellow parents you can turn to, nothing is more reassuring than knowing Dr. Stanford is just a text away…she’s like an extended member of the family. Now our son is heading into middle school years, and we don’t know what it will be like raising a teenager, but we do know she will be there for him, and for us.”
Patient ~ Carla U
“Dr. Stanford listens intently and is completely focused on what we’re saying. Our appointments go well beyond a symptom-based interaction…at times she would ask questions that appeared unrelated but in fact were due to her holistic perspective. She is incredibly empathetic, a wonderful listener and always has our family’s best interests in mind.”
