Why Choose Us
How It Works
Concerned about numerous healthcare trends that are negatively affecting doctor-patient relationships and the way care is delivered, Dr. Firshein 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, Dr. Firshein has considerably fewer patients than typical primary care doctors. This allows him to have enough time to provide each and every patient with personalized, unhurried care. Members of Firshein 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 Firshein CCPHP, a business entity formed by Dr. Firshein and CCPHP that is separate from his medical practice. Dr. Firshein provides all professional services through his practice, Richard Firshein, DO. 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 a physician, my greatest satisfaction is derived from working closely and comprehensively with my patients in an unhurried environment so that I can be my 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 my ability to continue to practice this way, I have collaborated with Castle Connolly Private Health Partners, LLC (CCPHP), to create a new concierge program called Firshein CCPHP, LLC.
The program provides my 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 me to optimize their wellbeing.
The patient-physician relationship is what I value the most as your family doctor. With this model, I will be able to provide a connected, convenient, collaborative care approach on a more ongoing and consistent basis. Ultimately, this program allows me to continue putting you, my patient, first.
You can learn more about the program as well as all of the benefits of Membership here and by calling (646) 412-5508.
