As SM Concierge Medicine patient, you enjoy the convenience of having your lab work conducted here in the privacy of our office. This allows for an immediate discussion of your results as soon as they are available. As a patient, advanced blood testing is included. Any additional lab work is submitted to your insurance company for payment.
Our comprehensive lab work includes routine and advanced blood testing. These tests screen for various health conditions, including diabetes, metabolic syndrome, dyslipidemia, hepatitis, STDs, and more. Dr. Maghidman constantly updates our tests in accordance to current testing recommendations from leading medical societies and evidence-based medical groups. Our tests are independent of insurance companies and designed to give a complete picture of your physical health. A full, updated list of every test is available here: comprehensive lab testing.
No. We are sensitive to your schedule and recognize that it is not always possible to have follow-up visits in person. Only the initial consultation and the first follow-up visit with Dr. Maghidman must be an in-person visit. Subsequent follow-up visits may be conducted via email or over the phone, unless a medical condition requires an in-person visit.
Depending on your age, health and medical history, we may recommend a follow-up visit every three, six or twelve months. You are also welcome to schedule a visit with us at any time to discuss health concerns you may have.
Our goal is to provide the highest quality care by building a personal relationship with each patient. In order to do so, we spend around two hours during the first visit taking your medical history, performing a comprehensive physical examination, and conducting comprehensive lab work, including advanced diagnostic blood work. This information helps us create a complete medical profile and understand your unique health and wellness needs.
Yes. You should still maintain your insurance, whether it is through a private insurance company or Medicare. You will need this insurance to cover the cost of hospitalization, visits to a medical specialist, radiology procedures, and any required lab work.
Absolutely! At SM Concierge Medicine, we welcome all patients and place no restrictions on pre-existing medical conditions. Our only limitation is the size of our practice; if we are full, we will place your name on a waiting list for next-availability. We regret that we cannot accommodate all patients who wish to join.
Advanced blood testing is included for free once you become a SM Concierge Medicine patient. Should additional lab work be necessary, the lab company will directly bill your insurance company or Medicare on your behalf.
