My Amazing Doctor
When I signed up for a concierge medical practice it seemed like it was the right thing to do. I was healthy and saw my Doctor once a year, if that.
On the other hand, my son had multiple issues at the time, fairly serious. Needless to say, we both signed up. I remember talking to the Doctor jokingly saying that "you will not be seeing me much, but my son is a frequent flyer". I had no idea what was ahead of me.Thank G-d my son is fairly healthy, but as soon as I signed up, my whole world crumbled.I became one of these patients that Doctors don't want to see, or just happily refer to another specialist saying that they can not find anything wrong. I am a health care professional, I know how it goes. You get a very complex patient that requires much of your time, attention, constant thinking, and you simply do not have the time. You need to see another patient, hopefully that one will be an "easy one". Many times I heard the words from all the specialists, the words that almost made me cry every time someone said them to me: "you are a challenging patient".
Who wants to deal with the challenging patient? No one. My health deteriorated to the point where I became dependent on my husband for everything. The quality of life was non-existent. It seemed like there was no end to this misery.
I am a very strong person. I was. Physically and mentally. I was the one who would take care of others and offered help to anyone in need. But being sick and in pain nearly broke me. The only people who truly understand this are the ones in my shoes. Others think that they do, but they really don't. Month after month, almost two years now, I was starting to lose hope. And hope is the only thing that you have going for you.
The only person who never gave up on me was my Doctor, Dr. Marc Rabinowitz from Prevention First Healthcare. He was and he still is there for me anytime I need him. He never rushed me, he listened to me, he took care of me, always had an interesting story to share, and, most importantly, had a solution for that immediate situation. Whether it was a test, a medicine, a consultation, he was always thinking and trying to make me comfortable. He always gave me hope. He was confident that some day we will find the answer. And we will.
He is an amazing Doctor, and he is a warm and a caring person.
As I am sitting in his office while writing this story, he keeps checking on me in between the patients just to make sure I am ok. I had a major reaction to medications that I take now, and he had to tweak them a little, but wants to keep an eye on me. So I am spending a day in his office. Literally, not at the front desk, in his office, as he goes from patient to patient. This is the kind of care you get. There is no procedure code for this. This is called being a real human being.
Dr. Rabinowitz gives you his cell phone number. And his patients call him day and night. I called on a weekend, at night, early in the morning and he took care of me. I always felt bad about it, but he kept telling me that it was his job as a Doctor to help me, and that I should never apologize for bothering him.
In the office everything seems so smooth, but there is a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes. And I have to say a big thank you to his front desk. There were so many instances when they spent hours on the phone trying to schedule me for a test that requires a lot of extra work. Hours! They called and scheduled me with specialists, and they manage to squeeze me in very quickly.
There is no such thing as waiting for months.
They do what the front desk does, but much more, and they do it with smiles and with care.
A few more words about my Doctor and the specialists working as a team.
There were so many times during my visit when Dr. Rabinowitz picked up the phone and spoke to the specialist before referring me to him, just to make sure that everyone is on the same page and that they understand what the problem is.
I was in the hospital recently. The amount of work it took from the Doctor himself, his front desk and the specialists to coordinate the treatment, to approve the hospital stay, to administer the right medicine was enormous. It took letters from the specialists, phone calls to the insurance and much, much more that I am unaware of --all to pull this whole thing off.
It is so important to have this type of care when you are sick and need help the most!
Not everyone is so lucky. I feel that I am.
I am sure that I am on the right path and we will find a solution that will change my life around.
I am so grateful to my Doctor and his staff for all the help, for hope that you give me, and for just being there for me!
The biggest Thank You to Prevention First Healthcare, Dr. Marc Rabinowitz, to all his staff, Mindy, Betsy & Sharon. I would not have done without you!
The driving force behind Prevention First Healthcare is that Dr. Marc has become the CEO of my personal healthcare. Everyone seems to have a lawyer, financial adviser and an accountant, but when it comes to healthcare I have found that many of my friends and family don’t have a true primary care physician who will take the time to analyze, organize and implement a strategy for one’s overall healthcare needs, including preventative measures. I know of other doctors who have over 5,000 patients to see and it’s just impossible for that doctor to give me great overall service that I receive with Prevention First Healthcare. From the in-depth health history that new patients review and electronically store with Dr. Marc, to the personalized attention in an emergency, the overall experience has been truly satisfying. The cost of health care is on the rise, but for what it costs at Starbucks each day, you can receive remarkably better health care because now you are receiving “efficient and thorough healthcare” with a CEO who can navigate you through the inefficient and complex healthcare system within our country today.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the love and concern, care and support you gave to us during Dad’s illness. You are truly a special, unique doctor, and a wonderful, compassionate person. I will never forget your kind, gentle and professional manner. With love and thanks...
I have known Dr. Rabinowitz for many years, from our time in college to the present. Marc’s diagnostic and clinical abilities are only surpassed by his compassion, ethics and concern for his patients. He has the unique ability to help you regain optimal health, and then works to be sure that you remain so. Marc is a gentleman, and someone who clearly cares about the patient. With his patient-centered approach to medicine, he truly is a rare breed. If you meet him, his approach and demeanor will put you at ease, and his clinical abilities will equally make you comfortable. There are few physicians who always place their patients first, and Marc is one of them.
Dr. Marc Rabinowitz provides OUTSTANDING CARE to all his patients. My experience with him and his staff has been exceptional! He is available 24/7. He deserves “THE BEST OF PHILLY.”
Since joining Prevention First Healthcare, Dr. Marc has helped me to better understand how all the various health issues come together to make me who I am and to understand how changing something will help other things down the line.
Dr. Rabinowitz is the most compassionate and patient doctor I have ever known. He has cared for me and my family for many years. He took care of my mother as if she was his mother. As far as I am concerned he is the BEST in his field.
Since joining Prevention First Healthcare, Dr. Marc has helped me by being available at all times. On a few occasions I did contact Dr. Rabinowitz outside of office hours. His advice was extremely helpful. I am also grateful not only for his care in times of illness, but for his counsel regarding maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
I have been Dr. Marc’s patient since he started Prevention First Healthcare. Marc and his team of skilled professionals have always shown me the very best care possible with the utmost patience and friendliness. Thanks to Marc’s emphasis on “wellness care” I remain very healthy. On the few occasions I had an emergent issue, even after hours or on a weekend, Marc was right there for me in a flash. I know I can expect the best care possible from Dr. Marc for a few extra dollars a week!
Dr. Marc Rabinowitz was the best thing to happen to me. After six pneumonias and hospitalizations, he has kept me out of the hospital with anything major for three years. The care and preventive medicine he gives patients is amazing. Dr. Rabinowitz spends so much time with me and then calls to follow up. If a specialist is needed, he knows and has access to the best….He gives the best medical care a person would ever need. It cost a pittance to have this care. Less than I spend for coffee. In all seriousness1, if Dr. Rabinowitz is not your doctor and you are able to join his practice you’re making a mistake if you do not take advantage.
