Welcome to a Personal Healthcare Experience
We are here to make and keep you well. Join us to start the journey together
Concierge Lifestyle Medicine
Our practice is a concierge lifestyle health care model. In our practice you become a “member” and in return you get benefits above what we could offer otherwise. Benefits include: 24/7 access – including cellphone, no-rush same-day appointments, true wellness and chronic health monitoring, executive-level physicals, and so on. I can provide these services to you because instead of having to care for on average 2000-4000 patients, I limit my practice to approximately 400 patients with time and resources that they couldn’t do otherwise given the realities of independent healthcare.
Paragon Private Health is my partner and is an expert at helping physicians stay independant and manage this model of care. Their involvement ensures that the level of service is maintained and that patients are getting quality care.

Dr. Nathan encourages her patients to consume whole foods plant based diet with minimal added sugars and fats.

Nutrition education is embedded in almost every visit, there are also Nutrition Class Series and group sessions that are offered periodically.
