New Dr. In South Florida

Recommended Posts

Dr. Santa Maria is located in Boca Raton, FL. He is a Concierge Dr. (sorry, you're on your own with this one :) ). What left an impression for me was that he treats POTS/Dysautonomia, something that I've been hardpressed to find in my area.

Just thought I'd put his infomation out there for anyone that is interested: http://santamariamedicine.com/sample-page/

He has two videos on his site as well. One describes him, his credentials, etc. The other focuses specifically on POTS/Dysautonomia.

*I have not been to this Doctor, don't know if I will, but it is exciting to me to at least have knowledge of a doctor in my area (sort of) that even knows what POTS is :)

Be well,

Bebe

P.S. He's not a "new" doctor. He's been in practice for years, only recently turning to Concierge.

Concierge medicine, is like buying a membership. You have to pay the doctor a monthly or annual fee to him/her. Sometimes on top of any other charges, and they often do not take insurance. So you probably would have to be well off to have one of these. But because of this they have fewer patients and spend more time with you. Some will go to specialist appt. or even meet you at the emergency room.

Joann,

Sounds good to me!! At this point, I'm willing to do just about anything (emphasis on just :) ). I'm reading all about it and currently watching a PBS Youtube video. I've read that since it has come to the forefront of treatment recently, sometimes it can be reasonable as far as $ goes, depends on the dr. I suppose. The only thing is with this particular dr., he is about 1.5 hours from me. I already wrote an email to see if he consults with other dr.s. We'll see what comes of it. I'm just thrilled to the gills that I've found a dr. within a reasonable distance that even knows what POTS is and treats it to boot!!

Sure hope you are feeling better :)

Be well,

Bebe
