Good communication is at the heart of the best medical care, which is why Perspective Health & Wellness provides access to your personal physician 24/7 if needed. We want you to know as much as possible about our services and philosophy.
How is this different from my traditional practice?
Perspective Health & Wellness is an expansion on today's medical service options. Direct access means your physician is never more than a phone call away. Our smaller panel of patients allows us to offer more extensive preventive health evaluations, expansive wellness plans, same-day appointments, education, coordination of specialty consultations and personal guidance for your healthcare needs and decisions.
Why has Carolinas HealthCare System established this type of practice?
Carolinas HealthCare System has seen a demand for a personalized approach to healthcare and some patients are requesting easier access to their physician.
How do I become a member?
Perspective health & Wellness is a membership based practice where patients pay an annual membership fee to be a part of the practice. The 2014 membership fee is $2500. Membership discounts are available for adult family members wishing to join the practice. Additional health-related needs, such as acupuncture or physical therapy, are not covered under the membership agreement. WE accept most medical insurance including Medicare and the billing in our practice functions just like any other primary care doctor's office. All costs associated with medical services are billed to your insurance company.
What happens if I become ill while traveling?
Our doctors want to ensure that you receive coordinated care and personalized attention no matter where you are. That means if you are ill or injured while traveling, we recommend you give your physician a call.
Can children join Perspective Health & Wellness?
Due to the specialties of our physicians, our efforts are focused on adults ages 18 and over. We are happy to provide recommendations and set up your children with a specific pediatrician, but Perspective Health & Wellness is an adult-only practice.
