Our commitment to quality care is personal, pleasant, and above all, professional. Each member receives a comprehensive annual executive physical and lifestyle counseling, so Dr. Jones is able to make accurate health assessments. This includes comprehensive examinations, close monitoring of chronic or developing conditions, and the coordination of diagnostic testing and if needed, specialist referrals.
The annual executive physical exam enables Dr. Jones to establish a health baseline and customize a health and wellness plan. This yearly assessment serves as a key component of concierge medicine by identifying health issues early on and preventing conditions from developing into crises.
The annual executive physical and lifestyle counseling session takes about three hours to complete. We use cutting edge diagnostics and analytic testing to ensure that we have a comprehensive understanding of your health status. Dr. Jones will follow up personally to go over the results. Our goal is to make sure you understand the present state of your health, establish a detailed plan to take action where necessary and improve your overall health.
When care from a specialist (such as a cardiologist or orthopedic surgeon) is indicated, Dr. Jones will assist you with referrals and scheduling appointments, to ensure your care is given the attention it requires.
The comprehensive concierge medicine annual physical and lifestyle counseling includes:

Tired of waiting? Did you know at a normal primary care practice that patients typically wait 27 minutes in the physician’s office and exam room before they spend just 8 minutes seeing their doctor or often a physician’s assistant or nurse practioner? Principal Medical Group guarantees no more long waits in the waiting room, in the exam room or even to just schedule an appointment and you will always be seen by a board certified physician.
Principal Medical Group values you as a client and treats you as such. Dr. Jones will take the time to treat you and will ensure that you leave with all your questions answered and concerns addressed.
During our comprehensive annual executive physicals, we run our patients through a gamut of tests to determine a more complete picture of their overall health. In certain instances, patients may require the involvement of a specialist within our extensive referral network and our doctors will work closely with them to ensure your care is being optimized.
At Principal Medical Group, we use the InBody 570, a state-of-the-art body composition analyzer, to get a much clearer, and more accurate, understanding of an individual’s unique physiology. Within a minute, this remarkable piece of equipment tells us how much peripheral fat, visceral fat, muscle, and water are in your body. Additionally, body fat percentage and BMI are calculated as well as fat and muscle distribution.
Principal Medical Group offers the Salveo Labs food sensitivity test, which identifies immune reactions to 222 foods. Unlike food allergies (which are based on an IgE immune system response), food sensitivities can over-activate the immune system creating inflammation in the body and a variety of symptoms, e.g., headaches, fatigue, joint pain and arthritis, anxiety/depression, skin rashes, abdominal pain, bloating, and diarrhea.
Low levels of testosterone are associated with numerous symptoms relating to physical and mental health in both men and women. However, it often goes untreated. Dr. Jones will perform a blood test to determine if you have low testosterone and review a symptom questionnaire all while performing a complete history and physical exam to determine how you may benefit from bio-identical testosterone pellet therapy.
Traditional lipids are only one piece of the diagnostic puzzle when it comes to evaluating stroke and heart attack risks. Principal Medical Group offers advanced cardiac testing and heart CT screening (when indicated) that provide a far better predictor of risk than traditional lipid profiles and stress testing.
Traveling to foreign lands entails exposing yourself to new or exotic types of bacteria, viral strains, and conditions. It is important to take proper precaution in order to maintain your health. Some of the requisite vaccinations may require a series of immunizations weeks apart, and Dr. Jones can both prescribe what you need, based upon your travel plans, and schedule your immunizations so you are ready to go by your date of departure.
A healthy diet and regular exercise contributes to your overall sense of wellbeing. Dr. Jones can take the time to sit with you and discuss your personal health goals and create strategies that will work for you.
A fundamental part of personalized healthcare is an annual exam, allowing your doctor to set benchmarks for your current state of health and track your progress during your ongoing journey to wellness. At Principal Medical Group, we go further in-depth with our assessment, utilizing comprehensive diagnostics and additional testing in order to get a fuller picture of your health. The combination of annual executive exams, lifestyle counseling and follow-up consultations between you and Dr. Jones form the basis of Preventive Care, an integral part of concierge medicine.
If the circumstance presents itself where your condition requires the care and attention of a specialist, Dr. Jones can liaise with a doctor from our professional network of referrals and assist with the scheduling of appointments and coordination of care.
And if/when your level of need surpasses the level of an office visit and requires hospitalization, Dr. Jones will act as your advocate when arriving in the ER. This helps tremendously in minimizing wait times and wondering when the ER doctor will see you. Additionally, Dr. Jones will coordinate your care with the inpatient physicians to assure that you are receiving the best and most appropriate care.
The level of access provided by your membership extends to those times when you are traveling outside the area, state, or even country. Although this does not mean we are ready to fly in Dr. Jones while you complete business in Russia, it does allow for consultations by phone or email. In the event of hospitalization, the hospital physicians should contact Dr. Jones to determine both your medical needs and appropriate levels of care.
