Sarasota, Fla. – Dr. Steven Fineman has opened Sarasota Personal Medicine (SPM), a concierge style internal medical practice in Sarasota, located at 1250 S.Tamiami Trail, Suite 202.
Joining a growing national trend of personal, concierge physicians, Fineman will limit the number of patients at his new practice, offering convenience of same day appointments and direct access to his services including house and hospital visits if necessary, personal phone calls, emails and texts.
“We are an internal medicine practice committed to providing a highly personalized approach to health care. With a limited number of patients, we can deliver exceptional service and extraordinary care, centered on the whole patient,” said Fineman.
Fineman, who has lived and practiced medicine in Sarasota for more than ten years, is board certified in both internal medicine and nephrology. This gives him the unique expertise to provide comprehensive care of patients who need management of medically acute and complex conditions and individuals looking for wellness and preventive care.
“It’s widely apparent that our current healthcare system is experiencing significant change and becoming more complex for patients to navigate. In this type of practice, I have the time to get to know every patient and be proactive about their care. Most people want and really value a doctor who knows them. Physicians should be an important and integral part of your trusted team of advisors,” said Fineman.
SPM offers extensive annual and executive physicals that include comprehensive blood work panels drawn in the office, management of care and referrals to specialists if needed and the convenience of direct physician communication and visits. Care in this model will also be complemented with discussions about wellness and nutrition, exercise and stress reduction.
“Our practice is truly ideal for the person who values their health and their time and doesn’t want to wait for appointments or answers. We treat each person in our practice like our own family member to provide comfort and peace of mind,” said Fineman.
