***** OPEN ENROLLMENT IS HAPPENING NOW *****
“As a boy growing up in Jamaica, I recall the doctor making house calls to my late, great-grandmother’s home. I wanted to emulate him and the many other doctors I watched in those old cowboy movies. These were the days when physicians were called doctors not healthcare providers, when surgeons were called surgeons not proceduralists and when patients were called patients not consumers. I decided to practice medicine the way it used to be and ought to be practiced in a more personalized way.” Those are some of the reasons given by Dr. George Chambers for creating the VIP access membership program.
George P. Chambers, Jr., MD, FACOG is a high-quality/award-winning OB/GYN who delivers exceptional healthcare that goes beyond the considerable limits of the traditional medical system. For the past decade he has offered both concierge and traditional OB/GYN care.
