From Our Medical Director
Leland Teng, MD
Executive Care 365 is all about relationships. I know from all my years in practice just how important the relationship is between the doctor and the patient. Yet these days, time has become a rare and precious commodity.
Most primary care doctors today have too little time to spend with each patient in their care. And busy executives have less and less time to take care of their own health care needs.
We have found that Executive Care 365 addresses both of these issues. Our physicians have limited their patient loads so they can spend more time on each patient. Each of our family practice doctors cares for about 300 patients — compared to a national average of about 2,500 patients.
At the same time, we’ve made it easy — and therefore time effective — for executives to get the care they need. We handle all the logistics — from scheduling tests and specialty appointments to validating parking. And while we have a waiting room, we make sure our executives never have to use it.
Do we really give our executive patients our cell phone numbers? Yes, indeed, we do. That’s what concierge medicine is all about. We’re available for situations great and small — from answering a question troubling a patient at home to conferring with an emergency doctor across the country — or around the world. Patients who have this type of relationship and access to their physician tend to be better engaged with their own overall health and well-being.
Because we are an integrated part of Virginia Mason, we have incredible resources at hand — clinics in many locations, specialists in every discipline, as well as medical records instantly available.
We’re proud to be part of this caring and award-winning medical center. We look forward to partnering with you in the care of your valued executive team.
For more than 40 years, Virginia Mason has partnered with local, national and global companies to inspire individuals with demanding schedules to better manage their health. These companies believe that the health of their team members is as important as the health of their business and demand the very best for their executives.
