St. Petersburg, FL (December 11, 2013) Known internationally for her dynamic work in the medical field, St. Petersburg native and Cleveland Clinic trained, Lora L. Brown, MD is excited to announce the opening of TruWell, A New Health, a unique offering of age management medicine and concierge services created for patients who demand greater access to superior medical care.
Dr. Brown is a double board-certified, fellowship-trained physician, specializing in the minimally invasive interventional treatment of pain, as well as anti-aging and regenerative medicine.
TruWell’s services include preventive aging with utilization of a comprehensive approach, focusing on bio-identical hormone optimization combined with fitness, nutrition, stress management and spiritual well-being. Bio-identical hormone replacement (BHRT) is one of the fastest growing specialties in the medical field. It is much safer than traditional synthetic hormone replacement therapy because physicians balance your hormones with naturally derived substances that are identical to your body’s hormones. Other offerings include: men’s and women’s wellness, anti-aging, preventative care, physical therapy, pain management, fitness, smoking cessation, nutrition, life-health and aesthetic counseling.
Internationally heralded for her work and dedication in pain management, Dr. Brown was asked to speak at the World Institute of Pain, an international medical conference that took place last week at the University of London, in England. “We had been working for nearly a year to engage Dr. Brown in this conference. She is well known as an expert in pain medicine and was involved in presenting new technologies. She also instructed European physicians in a hands-on course at our London conference,” said Dr. Muhamaed Ather, World Institute of Pain Conference Director.
Dr. Brown believes that balance and wellness are crucial in the prevention of the negative side effects of aging. She is a member of the American Academy of Anti-Aging, graduate of Wordlink Anti-Aging Foundation, and founder of TruWell, where she personally oversees every aspect of the patient’s clinical diagnosis, treatment and education.
“Each patient has very specific needs when it comes to their individualized wellness. What I have learned as a practicing physician over the past 15 years is that I can no longer focus on sick care as many of us were trained to do. In a true “well care” system we address issues before they become problems. That is true health care. Some patients have goals to achieve, some have symptoms to resolve, or both. And these needs are constantly changing. The TruTeam at TruWell will provide our patients healthcare mentorship through every step of the journey,” said Brown.
TruWell charges an annual fee for medical services and will only accept a limited number of patients. While insurance is not accepted, patients with a flexible spending account may be able to use that money towards a portion of the annual fee.
The annual fee includes:
• Access to all medical and wellness physicians and specialists
• No per appointment fees
• Same- or next-day service scheduling and no long waits
• TruWell appointments last as long as it takes to address all needs and concerns
• Full access to TruWell physicians via multiple means of communications. Reach the TruTeam 24/7 via email, text and webcam.
• Discounted labs & medication costs. TruWell professional benefits are passed along to patients.
The quality of healthcare can suffer in a system that forces physicians to treat high volumes of patients, and expects patients to visit their doctor only after they are sick. A TruWell priority patient will enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing they have a trusted team of proactive, medical and health professionals on their side, and on their schedule.
