Wouldn’t it be great to have a doctor you could call up anytime for advice? Or, how about a physician that would be there with you at the hospital during an emergency? That’s a reality with patients at Insight Life Care in Brandon, FL. In fact, for one patient, seeing a concierge doc helped a patient with heart issues get more time with his grandchild.
Chris Nussbaum, MD, FHM, founder and medical director of Insight Life Care, has taken his unique practice model to a whole new level. No one knows this better than Marty, a patient who suffered a heart attack in 2017.
“The only thing that kept holding me strong was Doc,” says Marty. “While I was in the hospital, he came to check on me every day, sometimes twice a day.”
Personalized Adult Primary Concierge Care
Concierge medicine is a term broadly used to describe highly personalized, individualized health care built on a direct physician-patient relationship. Insight Life Care’s concierge care offers numerous advantages over traditional practices, including:
- Direct relationship with the doctor
- Increased extended visits and personalized attention
- Quick access to a high-caliber physician for timely diagnosis and immediate treatment
Insight Life Care is the only concierge practice in the area that attends to its patients while they are in the hospital. The practice also offers a broad range of services, including:
- Adult primary care
- Internal medicine
- Restorative / Stem Cell Medicine
- LGBTQ care
- CBD products and medical marijuana evaluation & certification
Moreover, Insight Life Care provides other unique service offerings, including unlimited, extended office visits with no waiting, generous, flexible scheduling, and a broad range of additional membership benefits.
“The biggest difference is the one-on-one personal contact and attention,” says Marty. “I have no hesitancy or fear about going to the hospital because I know Doc’s got my back.”
A Better Way to Manage Complexity
Insight Life Care’s model of care is particularly beneficial for those who have complex medical conditions, travel frequently, or have otherwise busy schedules.
“There’s no guesswork, there’s no hanging around in a ‘lost in the crowd’ kind of atmosphere,” says Marty. “You can call direct, get a hold of the Doc, and you can get in right away to see if there’s something bad or not. Then, he can decide for you—you’re not left on hold or waiting in the waiting room forever.“
For Marty, his biggest concern was staying alive long enough to see his granddaughter grow up. With Doc Nussbaum’s help, that’s now a reality.
“I found Doc Nussbaum through a dear friend of ours,” he says. “In 2017, I had a heart attack, and I just wanted to live. My granddaughter had been born a few months before, and I wanted her to be able to recognize who I am.”
Insight Life Care brings old school, one-on-one physician-patient relationships back to modern medicine. Through this approach, the practice consistently delivers healthcare at a level of competence, concern, and service unmatched at other primary care practices.
“I’ve had heart issues in the past. Doc and I are monitoring it along with a cardiologist,” says Marty. “I try to be a good patient and do what the Doc says, but I’m hard-headed. However, Doc always makes sure I do what I’m told (laugh).”
Insight Life Care offers timely access to care, dramatically shorter wait times (or no waiting) in the office, and longer visit times with the provider, in which the patient’s specific health care needs are met.
“Your time is valuable,” says Marty. “Doc and the staff here take away the guesswork, so you don’t have to wait all the time. And you get clear cut attention.”
The patient-centered model at the heart of Insight Life Care limits the number of patients enrolled. This helps ensure that each patient is provided comprehensive, highly attentive, and personalized care at the doctor’s office, during home or workplace visits, and even during hospital stays. Moreover, the fact that Doc Nussbaum knows his patients exceptionally well makes taking action easier and faster.
Grateful for having prolonged time with his granddaughter, Marty credits Doc Nussbaum for his extended lease on life. “As I showed Doc pictures of my granddaughter and myself, that would never have been possible if he didn’t jump in,” he says. “To this day, I’ll always owe my life to Doc.”
