Concierge doctor/medical group in Contra Costa County
February 19, 2014 12:09 PM   Subscribe

I'm looking for a concierge medical practice. People in this question, as well as on Yelp and other review sites, have raved about One Medical. Unfortunately, the nearest One Medical is in Berkeley and no way am I going to drive that far to see my doctor. I'd like suggestions on a good concierge doctor or medical practice in Central Contra Costa County.

I've switched from Kaiser to a PPO, and have heard so many good things about concierge medical practices. In particular, people rave about One Medical. However, there is no office near me. There is one in Berkeley, but I don't want to drive that far.

I would like to find a concierge doctor and/or practice in Central Contra Costa County (Concord, Martinez, Pleasant Hill, Walnut Creek, Lafayette, Alamo, or Danville). I have Googled and Yelped for ones in my area but all the ones I can find have some really iffy/mixed reviews. Does anyone have personal experience, or know someone with personal experience, of a concierge medical practice in Central Contra Costa County?

This might not be especially helpful, but the Berkeley One Medical is super Bart adjacent.

This isn't a concierge practice, but the kind of service we get from John Muir physicians (PCP, obstetrics, gastroenterology, pediatrics, ENT, etc) is all top flight stuff.

Now that you're off Kaiser, consider setting up an initial appointment with a potential John Muir PCP and tell the doctor about the kind of experience you're looking for. John Muir is really an incredible institution.

Unfortunately, driving to the BART station, and then BARTing into Berkeley, (combined) is about an hour's one way trip from where I live. I would only go that far out of my way for a highly-regarded specialist.

I will give John Muir a call. They are about 10 minutes from where I live. Thanks, Colin L!
