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. Kakoulas 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. Kakoulas has considerably fewer patients than typical primary care doctors. This allows her to have enough time to provide each and every patient with personalized, unhurried care. Members of Kakoulas 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 Kakoulas CCPHP, LLC, a business entity formed by Dr. Kakoulas and CCPHP that is separate from her medical practice. Dr. Kakoulas provides all professional services through her practice, Kakoulas 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.

Practice Philosophy

As an internist, I strive to treat my patients with a focus on overall health and well-being. With Yaffe Ruden & Associates, I have the honor and privilege of building strong relationships with my patients, and establishing myself as their approachable health advocate.

I take pride in offering a personalized approach to care. I like to spend time with my patients, and provide an unrushed and unhurried environment that allows for open and extended conversations about their health and wellbeing. Unfortunately, in recent years, many of my patients have been experiencing long wait times and have felt the need to book appointments up to a year in advance. Continuing to practice medicine and serve patients in the way that I wish to is unsustainable in this increasingly complex healthcare environment.

To ensure that I can continue providing an elevated level of care into the future, I have collaborated with Castle Connolly Private Health Partners, LLC, (CCPHP) to create a new membership program, Kakoulas CCPHP, LLC. Members will have access to a wide range of membership amenities, such as 24/7 accessibility to me via cell phone, text or e-mail, extended office visits, same-day or next-day appointments, virtual telemedicine visits, when appropriate, opportunity to participate in the SENS Solution Health Coaching program, care coordination when you are in the hospital, and enhanced connection to more than 50,000 of Castle Connolly’s America’s Top Doctors®.


CCPHP was established by Castle Connolly Medical Limited (CCML) in order to connect patients with top physicians in order to facilitate an optimal healthcare experience. CCML is a highly-regarded research organization best known for its America’s Top Doctors® publication. Dr. Kakoulas and CCPHP have developed a membership program that will provide members with an array of amenities and enhancements, including enhanced connectivity to CCML’s elite compilation of America’s Top Doctors®.
