WHAT WE DO

BEYONDCONCIERGE MEDICINE.

WAY BEYOND

Doctors who care for you the way they would their own family.
Our practice is simplicity itself: we work for you and only you. With 120 patients per doctor — versus 2,500 at the typical American practice — the Sheldon Sowell Center for Health is your partner in pursuing the only goal that ought to matter to a doctor. Your health.

WORK DIRECTLY
WITH A DOCTOR

With a doctor. Always.

When you make an appointment to see a doctor, you will see a doctor. If you prefer a phone or email consult, we’ll do that.

For a routine blood draw you’ll be with a registered nurse, not a minimally trained medical assistant — we don’t have any. It’s a question of quality.

DO WE FIT YOUR NEEDS?

Doctors who let insurance rule their practices wind up with caseloads in the thousands. While that may maximize profits for the insurance company it is a potential disaster for everyone else. We left that business model behind forever in 1998.
  • We’re two doctors, two nurses, and two support staff in Denver, Colorado.
    Our commitment to excellence doesn’t stop at the exam-room door. We only hire Registered Nurses with four-year bachelor of science degrees.

WHAT IS CONCIERGE MEDICINE?

Concierge medicine is not a real thing. There are no concierge residencies, no board of concierge practitioners, no concierge continuing education.

So what are all these concierge practices that keep popping up? Well, they’re doctor’s offices that put the word “concierge” in their name. To be fair, so-called concierge practices typically accept fewer patients than insurance-based doctors but there’s far more to high-quality care than that.

When selecting a doctor, don’t confuse medical care with the marketing of medical care. Both doctors at The Sheldon Sowell Center for Health are family physicians, a medical specialty that does have residencies and board certifications and stringent continuing education requirements.

ARE YOU BUSY AND NEED AN AVAILABLE DOCTOR?

We’re betting your business and family depend on you. Perhaps you travel frequently or have multiple homes. You have significant responsibilities and can’t waste time sitting in a waiting room or playing phone tag with a doctor.

We can help. You see, we specialize in caring for highly productive, highly successful people. And that care goes far beyond seeing you on time and being easy to reach by phone or email.

Our practice was created on two promises: We’ll treat you like family and we won’t waste your time.

HOW ABOUT HOUSE CALLS?

We’re sometimes asked if we make house calls. The answer is that we do them when we feel they’re medically necessary.

Many of our patients have the resources to bring us in whenever and wherever they want, but that leaves us unavailable to other patients. And there’s this: we feel we do our best work in our office, with access to all of our equipment and our talented staff. Despite being busy people, most of our patients find visiting our office convenient, pleasant, and efficient. We’re highly conscious of our patients’ schedules and respectful of their time, which is why “waiting room” doesn’t really describe our lobby — very little waiting happens there.

The deciding factor on whether to make a house call is whether it’s what’s best for our patient. If it is, then yes, we’ll do it.

IS PRIVACY A MAJOR CONCERN?

We’re appalled by the lack of privacy in most doctors offices. So we built our practice from the ground up to protect your information.

Here’s what we do to maintain your privacy:

  • No open reception area
  • Sound-proof glass isolates the office from waiting room
  • No sign-in sheets
  • Special white noise in the ceiling tuned to muffle conversations
  • Intruder alarm system
  • High-level network security
  • Encrypted electronic data
