What: Services Offered

Hourly Medical Consulting

Professional Medical Evaluations

I see patients, like old-fashioned doctors used to. I am like an old General Practicioner,  such as TV's Marcus Whelby, MD.  Like Medicine used to be.  I perform in-depth medical history taking, and in-person physical examinations, and will discuss you situation, diagnosis, condition, prognosis, and alternative treatments for as much time as you need. I will also do Telemedicine or even telephone calls for established patients. I charge $300 per hour spent with patients, with a minimum of 20 minutes ($100); by appointment only.  No physician extenders, Physicians Assistants or Nurse Practitioners or  Medical Assistants taking your history, filling out forms that the doctor will only glance at.

  • Cash, check, or credit/debit card. Payable with an estimated fee in advance. House calls for established patients, $100 for 20 minutes, plus $100 per hour travel time.
  • I do not accept ANY health insurance. Period. I make no guarantee that your insurance company may reimburse you for part of my fee. However, I do not have to follow the rules of any insurance company or Government payor.
  • I will ask you to sign an Advanced Beneficiary Notice (ABN) saying that insurance will probably NOT pay for your medical services from me. It may be possible to apply my fees toward your annual deductible.
  • Like an attorney, whom you engage in reviewing documents, contracts, legal matters, etc., I will review your medical condition and records and come up with an explanation and medical advice. You can talk to me.
  • Family and friends welcome.
  • Your secrets are safe with me. I will send one report of our visit to you and one other Health Care Provider by paper and mail. I do not use a "Patient Portal," secure email, or an Electronic Health Record. You should continue care with your other Health Care Providers; I do not do "Primary Care" medicine but will help with urgent situations.
