Principal Medical Group offers a unique alternative to traditional primary care practices
WASHINGTON, April 11, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Principal Medical Group, P.C. announced today that its concierge medical practice is now accepting patients. Located in the heart of McLean, Va., Principal Medical Group offers access to high-quality service from experienced physicians, same-day appointments, comprehensive, preventative services and 24/7 doctor access.
"Concierge medicine brings us back to basics and eliminates many problems plaguing traditional primary care practices," said David J. Jones, M.D., a physician at Principal Medical Group. "Most doctors see 3,000 to 5,000 patients each year. In contrast, a physician at Principal Medical Group sees only 350 patients a year. That means not only will our staff get to know you as an individual, we get to know your unique healthcare needs."
Early in his career, Dr. Jones provided in-patient medicine as a hospitalist providing medical care to acutely ill hospitalized patients. In this role, Dr. Jones built a thriving practice in partnership with 11 other physicians in three hospitals in Virginia, including Winchester Medical Center, Warren Hospital in Front Royal and Shenandoah Hospital in Woodstock.
Jones continued, "As a hospitalist, I was able to spend time with my patients and work with them to address their health concerns. Now as a concierge physician, I can continue to focus on providing that personal attention and really getting to know my patients and their health goals."
A leading primary care physician in northern Virginia, Dr. Jones received his doctorate a decade ago from Ross University School of Medicine. His internship and residency training was completed in 2004 at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. Dr. Jones is board certified from the American Board of Internal Medicine.
