Three Dirty Little Words: Putting Me First

Posted by Kristin Richardson, CMO, CSO on Feb 7, 2018

Editor's Note: Our CMO, Kristin P. Richardson, opens up and gets real about her experience with a PartnerMD Advanced Physical. We are grateful for her candor about the impact of the results and in sharing details about her personal health and wellness. 

I’m about to enter my “mid-forties” and I’ve really never been to the doctor in my adult life. Sure I’ve tried an urgent care here and there when I couldn’t get a cough to go away. A midwife delivered my two babies. A nurse practitioner used to do a gynecology exam, but I was always horrible about going every year. So now I wake up middle-aged, with two small kids, a husband and a full-time job outside the home. Sure, I can stand to lose the last 10 pounds of baby weight, but isn’t that almost every mom out there?

I figured I was pretty healthy if I was rarely sick, could run 10ks, and ate vegan most days.

The Benefits of a Concierge Medicine Physical

Posted by Jana Morse, M.D. on May 11, 2016

As traditional primary care practices become more crowded, patients are finding it increasingly difficult to spend quality time with their doctors. Annual physicals have become shorter and less robust, making it challenging to have a detailed conversation about your health.

So, what do you do when you know you need a more thorough approach to your care?
