(Charles F. Glassman, MD, FACP; a.k.a. CoachMD)
My goal is to prevent illness and to practice healthcare rather than focus on “sickcare”.
The key to living a long, vibrant, prosperous, healthy life with strong relationships is to effectively manage the challenges of everyday life; hence, balancing stress and maintaining strong optimism. Taking the time to ask questions and listen is the way I can help my patients get to the core of imbalances in body, mind, and spirit.
What builds and sustains the doctor-patient relationship is mutual respect and trust. I develop with my patients appropriate care plans, which may include traditional, conventional approaches and/or alternative, complementary approaches. Some of the more common health issues that I address with natural or non-pharmacological therapies include: high cholesterol, gastro-esophageal reflux (GERD), hypertension, metabolic syndrome/”pre-diabetes”, stress/anxiety/depression, menopause/pre-menopause, and the latest cutting edge risk management screening for cardiovascular disease and cancer.
Because I have an open-minded approach, I am able to accommodate those patients who request IV administration of various nutrients.*
Even if you have no medical concerns or issues, I can guide you on proper direction when it comes to diet/nutrition, supplementation, stress management, and physical fitness. In order to achieve these goals, several years ago I decided to practice within a retainer-based model, which some have labeled “concierge medicine.”
Concierge Medicine generally refers to a private medical practice in which a physician charges some type of retainer fee. Typically, the patient is expected to maintain health insurance for hospitalizations, specialty care, laboratory tests and other diagnostic studies. The main benefit of concierge medicine is a more personalized attention from the physician. It can be summarized in three words: NO MORE WAITING!
