  • ECGs as needed.
  • An annual comprehensive physical with associated routine blood tests included.
THRIVE does not accept insurance payment for our medical services. Rather, our stated services are covered by the annual fee.
Yes! Your insurance will be billed directly for lab work that is not part of a physical, vaccines administered in our office, any diagnostic testing not done in our office, specialist visits, emergency room visits and hospitalizations.
You may reach your THRIVE doctor directly during regular office hours via phone, text message or email through our secure app, or messaging through MyChart which populates directly into your medical record. You can also reach your doctor directly after hours for emergency care.

No, your doctor will be accessible and appointments will be readily available. Each doctor will have a limited number of patients in her panel in order to ensure that we can provide specialized care to each and every patient.

Appointment scheduling is available by phone call, by sending us a message on our secure practice app, or through MyChart. Appointments are available on your time – same day or next day availability is typical. Ample time is allotted for appointments.
Yes. THRIVE will use the EPIC electronic medical record (EMR) system. If you have been a patient at Northwestern Medicine, all of your medical records will be available to THRIVE.
If you have been seen at another institution that uses EPIC (NorthShore University Health System, Rush University Medical Center, Loyola University Medical Center, Amita Health, Advocate / Lutheran General Hospital, Mayo Clinic and many more), it is likely that THRIVE will have access to your records via the “CARE EVERYWHERE” portal in Epic.
Part of our mission at THRIVE is to keep patients out of the emergency room by providing timely and appropriate care, but emergencies do happen. THRIVE patients can receive emergency care at any facility in which they have coverage and THRIVE doctors will be available for consultation with any emergency care physicians. Emergency room care will be billed to your insurance.
We are on the Medical Staff at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital.
Thrive doctors will coordinate closely with the inpatient (hospitalist) team at the institution where you are admitted.  Given our privileges at Northwestern facilities, our shared medical record, and our long-term relationships with these hospital teams, this coordination is seamless if hospitalized at an Northwestern Medicine facility.

THRIVE doctors are not available for house calls at this time.  However, we are able to send skilled nurses to your home to provide a variety of services such as lab draws, select rapid tests and IV fluids (if medically necessary). These services are not included in the annual fee.
