Family Add-On’s: Concierge Service for the Whole Family

Hoag Concierge Medicine offers health solutions for the entire family. Many of our members chose to give the gift of health and wellness by giving greater access to care to their family members. The true seal of approval for us is patients bringing their entire family into the program, so that we can best protect their most valuable asset, the health of those they love. 

One of the most rewarding parts of our job is to see patients and those who matter most to them achieve a level of health that they didn’t think was possible.

What we do at Hoag Concierge Medicine enables our clients and those they care about to spend more time doing what they love.Our promise is to treat all of our patients like we would our own family. 

Here’s what our Hoag Concierge Medicine members are saying about us:

“People I love, I want them to be taken care of.”

“My daughter, son in law and wife are all in the program.”

“I feel like I’m part of a family.”

“My whole family is part of the practice now.”

At our practice, we are afforded the time to get to know patients on a very detailed level. This quality time spent with individuals leads to a relationship built on trust, which is one of the most important aspects of a positive doctor-patient relationship. Our care team is grateful to be welcomed into patients’ lives and those most important to them for whole family care. 

We want to welcome you to join our team and allow us to help you and your family protect your health. Contact us today to learn more at 949-490-7376!

Meet Your Hoag Doctor: Dr. Lindberg

Hoag Concierge Medicine is about creating a lasting relationship between you, your doctor and your health support team. We want to get to know you, and vice versa.

Meet your Hoag doctor, Dr. Lindberg! 

Personal Background

Dr. Lindberg earned his medical degree from the University of California, Irvine and completed his residency in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics at UCI Medical Center. He is the past President of the Orange County Heart Association and has been a frequent speaker to physicians and leaders about health care and disease prevention.

Dr. Lindberg has been active in sports his entire life, playing both baseball and football. He has more recently enjoyed these sports as a coach and spectator. Today he stays active by hiking, working out, and spending time with his family at the beach and in the local mountains.

Why Concierge Medicine?

“The real advantage of concierge medicine, and the reason I enjoy it so much, is because I have plenty of time to spend with my patients. We schedule more than enough time for each and every visit so we can completely review whatever questions a patient might have. It also keeps people healthier because they get their questions answered on time and we can address things before they become an issue. “

Forming Lasting Relationships

“What I like best about my job is the people. Many of my patients I’ve known for 15 years or more. Concierge medicine is about relationships, and it’s about building a relationship with the patients I have. I want to welcome you to join our team and allow us to help you and your family protect your 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.

How Hoag Concierge Medicine Works: First Year as a Member

Are you searching for a new physician? If so, Hoag Concierge Medicine is different from the standard healthcare you might be used to. We provide our patients with a designated care team to efficiently manage and tailor a health and fitness plan to keep you healthy.

As a member, our clients have a comprehensive annual physical, access to their physician’s mobile and email, proactive health care planning, and a dedicated advocate if you have any healthcare issues.

Here is a quick breakdown to show you just how easy it is to get started with Hoag Concierge Medicine!

Signing Up

We make the sign up process quick! Whenever a potential patient is interested, we send over enrollment forms. Upon receiving the completed appropriate documents, we create an account on the same day and get appointments setup within one week of enrollment.

Completing Your Physical

Generally, the first two appointments that are scheduled will be the labs and annual physical. We will get labs scheduled within 1-2 days and the annual physical will be at least two weeks from the lab appointment date.

Reviewing Results / Outlined Plan With Doc

Your lab results will be reviewed on the day of the annual physical appointment. Any other lab orders or results will be scheduled for a follow up appointment a minimum of a week after the lab appointment date.

Using Additional Membership Benefits

Once you enroll as a member, you have access to our fitness facility and direct access to your physician. Follow up appointments vary from patient to patient, ranging from 1 week to 3 months after the last appointment, depending on the doctor’s request.

Return for Annual Physical

Lab work and annual physicals recur each year that a patient is a member to stay on top of their health.

Meet Your Hoag Doctor – Dr. Tuominen

Hoag Concierge Medicine is about creating a lasting relationship between you, your doctor and your health support team. We want to get to know you, and vice versa.

Meet your Hoag doctor, Dr. Tuominen! 

Constantly Learning From Each Patient

If every interaction is seen as an opportunity to become more familiar with a patient, that knowledge and bond is powerful in understanding their overall health and wellness. Asking creative questions across a broad spectrum helps to reach unique solutions for each patient. It’s why Dr. Tuominen focuses on treating the person and not the condition.

Building Relationships

“When people think of concierge, they think of service, and that’s definitely part of our practice. I think an even more valuable aspect is that of access and expertise. The ability to focus on a smaller number of patients allows me to get back to the reason I started family medicine, which is really that trusting relationship between a patient and a physician.”

An Insight on Wellness

“There are two things money can’t buy: health and time. The only thing that can give you more time is better health. I love helping people feel good and be happy. To be able to do this in an environment that is challenging and ever-changing is truly a blessing.”

Patient Care Philosophy 

You can expect to be treated like family as a patient of Dr. Tabrizi’s. She wants her patients – whether adolescents, seniors, or anything in between – to feel in control of their own health, and as such, takes a collaborative approach to care by ensuring her patients are equipped with any and all information that will successfully serve them on their health journey. This means making sure each individual understands the current state of their health, as well as any risk factors they might have, then working together on care options.

Taking the Time 

As a concierge physician, Dr. Tabrizi is able to take the time to not only get to know a patient intimately through their overall health, but as individuals. Being a part of every stage of patients’ health and wellness journey has always been a driving force for her.
