Primary Care - Concierge Internist Physician

Private Medical has spent the last 20 years creating a new category of concierge medicine — private medicine — by designing a system that honors the relationship between patients, physicians, and each member of the care team. Based in California and New York, our physician-led teams work in concert with our Gynecologists, Naturopathic Medicine Doctors, curated local specialists, elite medical centers, and specialists around the world, to provide evidence-based, longitudinal care to our members and their families. Private Medical is, by design, privately held and free from any conflicts of interests.

Job Overview: To work within a high-quality, highly communicative/collaborative, and team-based architecture to oversee the comprehensive health and well-being of patients.
