Personalized Care at Members.MD

At Members.MD, we follow a concierge medicine model that brings more personalized health care services to our members. Our physicians and RNs have a smaller patient base than traditional medical teams, enabling them to get to know each patient thoroughly and individually. We believe this approach is far more effective in maximizing our members’ health, as it allows us to comprehensively assess lifestyle and genetic factors behind their health concerns. Whether you are seeking preventive care or managing a chronic condition, our physicians like Dr. Stearnes have the time and resources to provide you with comprehensive care. Our commitment to personalized attention ensures that you gain unlimited and convenient access to top-notch physicians and same-to-next-day appointments.

Membership Benefits and Flexibility

We understand that you value the patient-physician relationship, which is why we designed Members.MD with your needs in mind. While our concierge medicine model involves a monthly fee for memberships, you can still submit medical claims to your health insurance providers. Moreover, charges for care received from a concierge doctor, such as Dr. Stearnes, are eligible for reimbursement with a flexible spending account (FSA), health savings account (HSA), or health reimbursement arrangement (HRA).

Unlocking Radiant Skin: Discover the Power of Skinbetter Science

We love to share our knowledge and excitement about our Aesthetics program.  The quality of products and services we offer is so important to us that we spent the last year providing services to a small, controlled group of employees and patients. The feedback from these patients has been overwhelmingly positive.

Our leadership team decided it was time to expand this awesome service to non-members, and we would invite anyone from the Omaha community to set up an appointment to learn more about our concierge aesthetics.  Your appointment with Dr. Mahapatra or Michelle Delgado will consist of a personalized consult about your skin, and a sample pack of our products to take home.  The whole appointment should only take thirty minutes.

Our product, Skin Better, has been going out the door as fast as we can get it.  Our providers trialed many products and skincare lines, but had no problem choosing the best of the best.  Skin Better is only available to physicians.

To schedule your complimentary aesthetics experience, please call the front office at 402-779-8400.

What is Concierge Medicine and How Can it Benefit Women?

In our fast-paced world that is seeing an increasing demand for service, timeliness, and attention to detail, it’s no surprise that we’re seeing a trend towards concierge medicine. This growing model of healthcare is one in which patients pay an annual or monthly fee for direct access to their physician. This means no more waiting on hold to schedule an appointment or sitting in a crowded waiting room for hours only to be seen for a few minutes. With concierge medicine, you can schedule same-day or next-day appointments, and you’re guaranteed to have quality time with your physician. But is concierge medicine right for everyone? In this blog post, we’ll take a look at how concierge medicine can benefit women in particular.

One of the biggest benefits of concierge medicine for women is that it offers direct access to care. In our fast-paced world, it can be difficult to get timely appointments with specialists. With concierge medicine, you can see your primary care physician whenever you need to without having to wait weeks or even months for an appointment. This is especially beneficial if you have concerns about your reproductive health or if you’re trying to conceive.

Another benefit of concierge medicine is that it provides more personalized care. Your physician will get to know you on a personal level and will be able to offer tailored advice and recommendations based on your unique needs and situation. This level of personalized care is simply not possible in a traditional healthcare setting where physicians see 30-40 patients each day.

Finally, women who choose concierge medicine also enjoy greater peace of mind knowing that they have direct access to quality care when they need it most. If you have a question outside of normal business hours, you can pick up the phone and speak to your physician directly instead of having to rely on a nurse hotline or after-hours answering service.

While concierge medicine isn’t right for everyone, it does offer some distinct advantages for women. If you’re looking for direct access to care, personalized attention from your physician, and peace of mind knowing that you can always reach your doctor when you need to, then concierge medicine may be worth considering. Members.MD has male and female concierge physicians ready to serve you in the Omaha area.

The Benefits of Concierge Medicine for Business Executives

As an executive, your time is valuable. You don’t have time to waste sitting in a doctor’s waiting room for hours on end, only to be rushed through your appointment. That’s why concierge medicine may be the right choice for you. Concierge physicians are available to answer when you call, check with other providers you may have to fully manage and coordinate your care, and have time to spend over an hour with you at appointments. Concierge medicine goes above and beyond to make you feel great.

What is a Concierge Physician?
A concierge physician is a primary care provider who limits their panel to a few hundred patients. This allows them to get to know their patients on a personal level and provide them with the best possible care. Because they are not bogged down by hundreds or even thousands of patients, they have the time to provide comprehensive care and coordinate with specialists as needed.

Benefits of Concierge Medicine at Members.MD
There are many benefits of concierge medicine for business executives. First and foremost, because our concierge physicians at Members.MD only have a few hundred patients on their panel, they are able to provide each patient with the individualized attention they deserve. This means that if you have a question, your doctor will have the time to answer it thoroughly – no rushed appointments or feeling like just another number. In addition, because they know their patients well, concierge physicians are able to catch potential health problems early on and nip them in the bud before they become serious. Finally, concierge physicians are able to coordinate your care with other specialists, making sure that everyone is on the same page and that you’re getting the best possible care.
