Concierge Family Medicine Comes to Long Island’s South Shore
“I wanted a practice where I could make a real difference in the lives of individuals, the public, and the planet we call home…. it’s why I became a doctor.”
-Daria Blyskal, MD.
In this concierge medical practice, I provide each patient with the time they need to address what may be concerning her/him – no issue is too complicated or too small for you to call, text, email or visit. I am a US-trained, board certified physician current in the latest western medical practices. The concierge style allows us to take a more holistic approach to healthcare that emphasizes preventative care, respectful listening and honest recommendations. I am have no ties to insurance or pharmaceutical companies, or healthcare corporations. I provide the comfort and feel of an old-fashioned country doctor. Prior to the pandemic, I made house calls with my old-school doctor bag! I’m looking forward to resuming that when it is adequately low risk.
