We are proud to offer you a medical care practice where patients are what matter most. Here, there are no more middlemen, no more intrusive insurance requirements, and no more barriers to your care. In our practice, it’s just us working together to keep you healthy. It’s time for primary care and internal medicine to get personal again! I hope you’ll join me. ~ Dr. Reese and Dr. Villaythong
Our chief goal is to make our patients the center of the medical practice by providing more time for office visits, better communication between visits, more continuity of personal care and more attention to detail than what is offered in a traditional insurance-based practice.
Erin Reese MD is able to provide concierge medicine services to residents across the state of Texas and the following local cities; Houston, Dallas, Austin, New Braunfels, San Marcos, Victoria, San Angelo, Bulverde, Canyon Lake, Boerne, Corpus Christi, Galveston.
Approach: Concierge MD Program
Our approach to your care is evidence-based, comprehensive, individualized, and compassionate. In order to provide you with the quality care you deserve, we will take the time to get to know the whole you so we can tailor your treatment plan to your individual needs. There is no “one size fits all” approach to internal medicine.
What gives us joy is working collaboratively with our patients to form unique solutions to very complicated medical problems. Whether it is a focused discussion about the prevention of disease or a lengthy discussion about treatment options for a new diagnosis, we believe that education empowers my patients. The more we can teach you about what we’ve learned over 7 years of training and 10 years of practice, the more likely we are to be successful in improving your health. This approach takes time and is not achievable in a traditional “insurance-based” model.
Our practice is based on a concierge care model. This means that for an annual membership fee you will have 24/7 access to Dr. Reese, usually directly unless she in clinic or with a patient. That annual fee covers all concierge doctor services she provides. We will not bill your insurance company and you will never have to pay a co-pay for office visits.
