More Connected Primary Care
By having more time to spend with each patient, our doctors at EMA CCPHP can ensure enhanced connectivity through a more convenient, and collaborative approach.
Why Choose Us
How It Works
Concerned about numerous healthcare trends that are negatively affecting doctor-patient relationships and the way care is delivered, EMA CCPHP 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, EMA CCPHP has considerably fewer patients than typical primary care doctors. This allows our doctors to have enough time to provide each and every patient with personalized, unhurried care. Members of EMA CCPHP 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 EMA CCPHP, LLC, a business entity formed by the physicians of Eastside Medical Associates, P.C. and CCPHP that is separate from their medical practice. Dr. Lichtenfeld and Dr. Loria provide all professional services through their practice, EMA CCPHP. 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.
As physicians, our greatest satisfaction is derived from working closely and comprehensively with our patients in an unhurried environment, so that we can be our patients’ advocate and advisor regarding longevity and quality of life.
In order to alleviate some of the barriers in today’s healthcare environment that interfere with our ability to continue to practice this way, we have collaborated with Castle Connolly Private Health Partners, LLC (CCPHP), to create a new concierge program called EMA CCPHP. The 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 us 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 us 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 (646) 412-5561.
