Dr. James Eells is a leading provider of healthcare services under the concierge medicine model. This model offers very personalized, premium-quality healthcare for patients enrolled in his clinic’s membership plans.

Dr. James Eells Concierge Practice
The practice Dr. Eells runs in Las Vegas is not your ordinary health clinic. It revolves around the patients; specifically, their health concerns and their goals in living healthier lives. The concierge medicine model the clinic practices under ensures that the patient load stays small, giving the staff and Dr. Eells more time with each patient. By spending more time discussing illnesses and long-term health goals, Dr. Eells is able to tailor proactive solutions that help his patients reach those goals, whether that is weight loss, reversing the aging process, or simply living a healthier lifestyle.
Dr. Eells is very confident that the concierge-style healthcare he practices is the right fit for people looking to get more out of their healthcare provider. New patients can receive a complimentary 30-minute consultation with Dr. Eells, where he fills them in on the services the membership plans offer and gets a feel for their long-term wellness goals. Unlike traditional healthcare settings, or even other concierge physicians, the healthcare memberships include things like routine physicals and laboratory analyses – services others try to cut to save costs.
Concierge Medicine Costs and Insurance
There are a lot of misconceptions about the costs associated with personalized healthcare like the concierge medicine model. Many believe this type of healthcare is reserved only for the wealthy, but nothing could be further from the truth. Dr. Eells offers a range of personalized plans in his healthcare memberships, finding ways to fit any budget by selecting from the vast array of services he and his clinic staff provide. The yearly fee is often substantially less than the deductible many people pay to their insurance companies – deductibles that are paid long before insurance benefits kick in. In practice, the yearly membership fee may even be applied to insurance deductibles.
The clinic accepts many insurance plans to cover costs not associated with the personalized membership plans. These include:
- Blue Cross and Blue Shield
- Mutual of Omaha
- United HealthCare
- And many more!
With this business model, Dr. Eells has the time to really get to know his patients, understanding their health histories and future wellness goals in ways that traditional physicians simply do not get to experience. A smaller patient load give him and his staff the ability to manage and coordinate a patient’s complete medical care. Comprehensive evaluations and thorough examinations are performed, helping to identify underlying nutritional deficiencies and other issues that could compromise well-being. Dr. Eells wants to keep his patients out of the hospital, and he does so by stressing the importance of preventative care. By being proactive and encouraging his patients to do the same, this premium healthcare can not only maintain one’s health but also to improve it over time, adding years to one’s life by reducing the risks associated with developing diseases in the future.
