MAY 27, 2015 – Even in the star-studded environs of Burbank, California, home to the country’s best-known movie and television studios, Dr. Monica Sarang proves to have star power of her own. The 16-year veteran of private practice recently made the change to concierge medicine, assisted by Specialdocs Consultants. Dr. Sarang says ever longer wait times for physical exams and acute appointments, continually seeing more patients in less time, and spending too many hours on non-care tasks spurred her decision to jump off the treadmill to a new model of medicine.
“The current healthcare environment rewards speed and technology, not listening, thinking and compassion. I was certain there must be a better way to provide the kind of care and attention I set as my standard in 1999…but it required a change,” explains Sarang. “I couldn’t be more excited about the promise of my new practice and the opportunity it brings to address multiple issues in one visit, focus on prevention and wellness and serve as my patients’ medical advocates whenever and wherever needed. It’s the way medicine used to be practiced, and it’s the way we know it still should be practiced.”
Dr. Sarang opened the doors earlier this month to her Personalized Medical Care practice, at 201 South Buena Vista Street Suite 250 in Burbank, California. For more information, visit www.sarangmd.com or call (818) 471-4930.
A Special Message from Dr. Monica Sarang
“I have always loved the challenge of practicing good medicine…putting the puzzle pieces together to form an accurate diagnosis. For me, being a primary care physician offers a blend of the best science and critical thinking combined with a healthy partnership between doctor and patient. Throughout my 16 years in private practice, I’ve always felt that the time I spend listening to you and working together to determine the best course of action is the best medicine, achieving the best outcomes.
Time, while not the most sophisticated diagnostic tool, is the most important resource I have in caring for you. Despite my best efforts, however, I am seeing more patients in less time, and spending too much time on tasks not directly related to your care. I want to move forward and practice medicine again the way it used to be, the way you want it to be, and the way we know it should be.
My new practice provides more time to address multiple issues in one visit, focus on prevention and wellness, and help you feel your best and live your best life. It allows me to be with you whenever and wherever you need a medical advocate, whether it’s during regular office hours, in the middle of the night or while you are traveling. I am the doctor who knows you best…and I want to remain a part of your medical life at all times.
I could not be more excited about the promise of my new practice, and the opportunity it brings to personalize your care, without compromise.”
Monica D. Sarang, MD
