When my general practitioner retired a few years back, I became extremely concerned about the difficulty accessing the best care available in a timely manner.

Signing on for you and the BJC Concierge Care clinic was the best decision I could make to take care of my health. You all are my lifeline!

Dr. Kamat’s staff is warm and efficient, and the office atmosphere is serene and comfortable with all manner of beverages and snacks provided. There is a strong atmosphere of mutual respect and teamwork in every consultation we have had since joining Concierge Care. It is well worth the monetary investment to participate, and we would recommend it to anyone.
