“I’ve been going to Healthbridge for several years. If you’re not familiar with the concept of concierge medicine and the benefits for you as a patient you should be. This is a different kind of practice where you can get truly personal care. I’ve had experience with Dr. Klein and now Dr. Edelson. These are excellent, thorough and knowledgable doctors. They spend a long time with you in visits. They really care. The nurses and office staff are all top notch. This is the most helpful medical practice I’ve been to in my nearly 6 decades on this planet. They even have an on-site full gym!”
