“We are very pleased with the quality of care that General Medicine’s team of clinicians has provided to all of the members of our health plan. We respect their compassion, professionalism and attention to detail that has enabled your post-hospitalist/SNFist program to perform much beyond our expectations. Together with your assistance, we have been able to better manage our plan’s high costs of hospital admissions, readmissions and unnecessary ER utilization. Thanks for all your hard work”.

“We have had an affiliation with General Medicine for several years and during that time we have grown to depend on them to assume the care for our patients when they leave the hospital. We are able to discharge them quicker and sicker, and reduce lengths of stay. It is wonderful for the patients and us. When they follow the patients, we are assured that there is great continuity of care, and we know that unnecessary ER visits and re-hospitalizations don’t occur”.

“We tried other physician groups as our medical director and as in-house attending physicians for over five years.  None of them were responsive to our needs.  When we found out about General Medicine and they partnered with us, we didn’t know what we had been missing.  They are wonderful!  We’ll never change again”.
