Concierge Primary Care
At UCI Health, we believe you should never feel alone in your health journey. If you or a loved one is living with a chronic or complex condition, or even if you are healthy and want to take steps to prevent disease, you know a close relationship with a trusted primary care physician makes all the difference.
A Unique & Personalized Whole Person Concierge Healthcare Approach
While traditional primary care physicians are able to treat common illnesses and make referrals for specialty care, they often lack the time to thoroughly investigate a patient’s condition and how it affects every aspect of their life.
Led by expert concierge primary care physician Dr. Marcela Dominguez, the UCI Health Concierge Primary Care is designed to care for patients who want consistent and comprehensive access to care. Our annual membership-based program manages care for a limited number of patients, which means your doctor can devote more time to focus on your overall wellness and preventive care.
