First Las Vegas Concierge Medical Boutique Caters To Kids

By | Healthcare Tourism OPM

Dr. George recognizes Las Vegas’ littlest VIP’s demand Concierge Medicine, too.

Constantine George is not your typical Board Certified Internist & Pediatrician, and his clients are thankful. After having dedicated much of 2016 to his growing practice and as Medical Director of RESORTCIERGE MD (an exclusively dedicated house call medical concierge provider) he has quickly recognized that many of the requests are for the city’s littlest VIP’s- our children. And, if there’s one thing that a compassionate and skilled Pediatrician knows how to do best, it is to be proactive! Thus, announcing HYGEIA HEALTH AND WELLNESS, which is the first Concierge Medical Group that caters to Adults & Children in Las Vegas, was a clear next step.

“Imagine the peace of mind of having access 24/7 to a physician for your entire family” says Dr. Constantine George. “I wanted to create the ideal medical environment, one where I wanted to bring myself and my own family.”  For a yearly fee, families have access to a highly personal service that’s well-equipped to track any and all aspects of their family’s health, 24 hours a day

HYGIEA Members can come in as often as they want and are encouraged to call with questions to help manage their care. Given the rising costs of medical care, this level of service is not seen as overly extravagant especially in a city that boasts the best of the best, so why should medical concierge for pediatrics be any different?

HYGIEA is the first combined Internal Medicine/Pediatrics concierge private practice in Las Vegas.  A medical experience that blends the hospitality of Las Vegas with your clinical evaluation.  Whether you arrive by private car with assigned covered parking accessibility or are dropped off by limousine, you will be treated to an experience like no other in our serene environment.  From check in to check out, you are guided along each step of your medical work up. Convenient access to your physician is available in the form of same day appointments or after-hours phone calls / texting or emails. Follow up phone calls and emails ensure that our patients’ needs are exceeded.  In addition to primary care services, HYGEIA HEALTH AND WELLNESS provides a multitude of services including but not limited to:

Executive Physical Exams:  Building upon their exclusive relationship with New York based EHE International-the gold standard in executive health exams, Dr. Constantine George and his team offer unparalleled services for your executive healthcare experience.  Gone is the need to fly to the Mayo Clinic or Scripps Clinic. You can now have your executives stay local and get their executive physicals done in the comfort of their own backyard. With impeccable follow up and continuity of care in Las Vegas, there is no longer a need to seek services outside of our valley.

Personalized Care: Longer appointments and immediate access to physicians is our practice. We reduce the volume of patients to just a fraction of the size so that your appointment is customized to your specific needs. We will also help coordinate care for our patients any time you need a specialist or the hospital, ensuring continuity of care and assisting to eliminate the needless (and costly) burden of extra visits and evaluations.

Convenience and Peace of Mind:  Afterhours access to Dr. George is customary in addition to same-day or next-day appointments with minimal or no wait times in a serene, comforting atmosphere. We also have reserved covered parking or can assist in securing a private limo, SUV or sedan services. We are conveniently located on West Flamingo near Durango with easy access from the I-215 or 1-15.

Affordable Luxury: Our yearly individual membership is unexpectedly affordable and we also accept most insurance plans for visits or a family membership for you and your family is also available.  Concierge medicine can lower healthcare costs by spending more time with each patient, Dr. George can help manage conditions that often require complex care and management including coordinating between different care providers and specialties.

House Call Physicians:  Dr. Constantine George serves as medical director of RESORCIERGE MD.  World class medical care coupled with on demand House Call medicine is what RESORTCIERGE MD delivers, 24/7/365.

Problem-Based Learning At The School Of Medicine

By | Uncategorized

Set aside those visions of medical students furiously taking notes as a professor gives an in-depth lecture on the biology and chemistry of the human body. This will not be the educational experience for students at the UNLV School of Medicine. Instead, students will learn by playing the role of doctors.

Imagine for a moment that your first patient is 32-year-old Susan Morris. Three friends accompanying Morris say she is there because they noticed scratches and burns on her hands and arms for the past month. The sores don’t bother Morris — they just “appear” while she works in a restaurant, she says. On exam, she has three deep burns on her right fingers, and several ulcers and scars on her left forearm.

Staying One Step Ahead Of Brain Cancer

By | Healthcare

The brain is one of the body’s most remarkable organs.

More than 100,000 chemical reactions take place within the brain every single second. The average brain also has more than 400 miles of blood vessels. Additionally, information in the brain is said to move at more than 250 miles per hour — faster than any car you’ll ever see on any racetrack.

Clearly, a lot is going on within the average brain.

This means a lot can go wrong as well. And, while there may be seemingly clear signs and symptoms for certain types of cancer, there is no smoking gun when it comes to brain cancer.

Allergens On The Attack

By | Healthcare | No Comments

When your body’s immune system reacts to a foreign substance in a way that doesn’t cause a reaction in others, that is what’s known as an allergy. Ranging from pollen and dust to more severe sensitivities such as food and insect sting allergens, the impact of allergies deserves discourse beyond combating the commonly associated sneeze. This hypersensitivity is both preventable and treatable.

Understanding Some Of The Essential Levels Of Care

By | Healthcare Innovation OPM

With a wide variety of health care options available in Southern Nevada, it’s important to understand the roles of primary care providers, urgent care facilities and hospital emergency departments. When used appropriately, these levels of care can serve an incredibly valuable resources for patients, offering a broad range of services spanning from preventative health care to life-saving treatment.

In certain situations, it can be confusing for patients to decide whether their conditions warrant a visit to a primary care physician, urgent care clinic or emergency room. “These three levels of care address three very different needs for patients,” said Dr. John Onyema, medical director of University Medical Center’s ambulatory care centers.

With an ever-changing healthcare landscape, many patients today are looking for ways that they can better manage disease and get the care they need from a physician who truly cares about helping them be healthier. The increased cost of belonging to a boutique or concierge practice is often worth the increased benefit for many patients, particularly those who value their time and those who have increasingly complex medical conditions to manage.
For most people, spending a little bit of extra money to be part of a private practice is an investment in your long-term health and wellness. The results and benefits of having a physician who truly knows you and provides you with the highest level of service and care are worth the investment. This is the commitment made to you by HYGEIA.
