Why Choose Us

How It Works

Concerned about numerous healthcare trends that are negatively affecting doctor-patient relationships and the way care is delivered, Downtown Private Health has collaborated with Castle Connolly Private Health Partners (CCPHP) to create a unique, concierge or membership-based practice model that provides a more optimized healthcare experience for both patients and providers.

In this model, the physicians of Downtown Private Health have considerably fewer patients than typical primary care doctors. This allows them to have enough time to provide each and every patient with personalized, unhurried care. Members of Downtown Private Health pay an affordable annual fee to take advantage of a wide array of member benefits and enjoy a more convenient, connected, and compassionate approach to healthcare.

Membership fees are payable to Downtown Private Health, LLC, a business entity formed by Dr. Regina Janicik, Dr. Ora Pearlstein and CCPHP that is separate from their medical practice. Our doctors provide all professional services through their practice, Downtown Primary Care. Since the membership fees do not pay for any insurance-covered healthcare services, we recommend that our members maintain their health insurance. Contact us for more information.

Practice Philosophy

We are very pleased to announce our collaboration with Castle Connolly Private Health Partners, LLC (CCPHP), to create a new concierge program called Downtown Private Health. This program provides our patients with a wide variety of membership amenities to enhance their care experience, such as access to the innovative SENS Solution® Wellness Program, which includes a personal health coach who collaborates with their doctor to optimize their wellbeing.

The patient-physician relationship is what we value the most as practitioners. With this model, we will be able to provide a connected, convenient, collaborative care approach on a more ongoing and consistent basis.  Ultimately, this program allows our office to get back to putting you, the patient, first.

You can learn more about the program as well as all of the benefits of Membership in this brochure and by calling 917-268-7430.
