WHAT IS SOUTHWELLNESS?
Southwellness is a personal-physician, limited-volume practice that does not participate with insurance. My goal is to build relationships with members with a focus on humanism and responsiveness, and where maintaining dignity in the face of health and wellness challenges is paramount. I offer care on your terms, meaning when and where you need it whenever possible. This includes visiting with you, testing you, and treating you in the comfort of your place of strength when desired -your home. It also includes truly being the captain of your wellness ship, navigating whatever you need or want to explore in terms of health, wellness, and illness. This ideal relationship is still possible in the modern era when your medical doctor truly leads with minimal to no delegation. If you call me, I will answer personally, and work through whatever is needed with you at that time. Having health challenges is scary, and trying to change your lifestyle to become healthy can feel impossible. Finding a doctor you can trust to be there when you need them, to spend the time it takes to empower you, who will treat you like family in a real sense is not even an expectation most people dare to have anymore. The goal of Southwellness is to change the paradigm of what primary care can be.
When you need it, on your terms.
