From a Patient’s Perspective

Our patients are the reason we do what we do. At Hoag Concierge Medicine, we take immense pride in being able to provide top-level care that allows each person to experience an improved state of health and wellness alongside a team of professionals that care. 

We are incredibly humbled by and grateful for the kind words that a dear patient of Dr. Lindberg’s, Ben E. shared:

“I was a member of a large healthcare provider in Southern California for over 20 years. During that time, I was constantly having to deal with various challenges related to the care and services they provided. Some of those challenges was having to wait weeks for appointments, consistently feeling rushed by my physician and his staff during appointments, hesitancy in ordering tests that may aid in better diagnostic decision making, and at times deciding my course of care before truly listening and evaluating my medical concerns. After so many years of poor and disappointing care, I finally made a decision to seek a new healthcare provider.    

After doing extensive research, I decided to join HOAG Concierge Medicine. HOAG Concierge Medicine checked off all the boxes that was important to me such as providing same day appointments, in-office lab testing, proactive verse reactive approach to my health, and wonderful physician and staff reviews. Choosing HOAG Concierge Medicine as my primary care provider turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life. 

Upon my first visit, I was introduced to Dr. James Lindberg and his care team. Dr. Lindberg and his professional staff conducted an extensive executive health and physical examination to evaluate my overall health. Throughout the examination, Dr. Lindberg spent a great deal of time to personally get to know me, understand my medical history and concerns, while making me feel comfortable that I was in the best care. There was never a moment during our conversations and examination that he made me feel rushed. Upon completing my examination, his staff immediately scheduled me a follow up appointment a few weeks later so that we may discuss my health examination results. In my follow up visit, Dr. Lindberg provided me a detailed comprehension review of my current state of health which included a plan of action and recommendations that would assist me in optimizing my short and long term health.

 As for Dr. James Lindberg, he is an extraordinary doctor who is a blessing to the medical profession. I have never met a physician who possessed a higher level of attentiveness, compassion, and professionalism while providing insightful clinical wisdom to his patients. Dr. Lindberg is undoubtedly the golden standard of what a healthcare physician should be. I am beyond grateful of my ongoing relationship with Dr. Lindberg as my primary doctor.

I would also like to mention that the entire medical team (especially Nurse Melanie) and office staff have exceeded my expectations in every imaginable way. From the moment you walk into this world class facility, you are treated as if you were a directly a HOAG family member. The front office staff provide a level of guest service and hospitality that is beyond belief.  Upon every one of my visits, they have always greeted me with a welcoming smile, offered me refreshments, maintained an extremely clean private member lounge area, while never holding me for more than a few minutes before receiving care. This level of service is truly unmatched in the medical care industry. They make me feel like a VIP!

If you are looking for the finest concierge services in the Orange County area, then look no further then HOAG Concierge Medicine. Dr. Lindberg and the entire HOAG Concierge team are hands down the BEST.”

May Monthly Member Tips: Recipe + Workout

Experiencing an elevated state of health and wellness starts with our daily habits.

Flavonoid-rich foods lower blood pressure. High intake of these fruits lower systolic blood pressure. The lower blood pressure readings are due to positive changes in gut bacteria diversity. Findings show similar dietary interventions may clinically benefit vascular outcomes and cardiometabolic health.

April Member Tips: Recipe + Workout

Experiencing an elevated state of health and wellness starts with our daily habits. The type of exercise we engage in and what food we are feeding ourselves to fuel those workouts has a direct impact on our overall state of physical and mental health. Each month, Hoag Concierge Medicine wants to make planning easier by equipping you with expert insight.

Since April is IBS Awareness Month we wanted to give you some nutrition and exercise based recommendations for healthy GI function!

Recipe Tips:

Workout

Physical exercise can be both beneficial and harmful for the gastrointestinal tract in a dose-effect relationship between its intensity and health. Mild-to-moderate intensity exercises play a protective role against colon cancer, diverticular disease, cholelithiasis and constipation, whereas acute strenuous exercise may provoke heartburn, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea and even gastrointestinal bleeding. 

Sticking to low impact strength training exercises can be beneficial for gut health in comparison to high intensity interval training.
