Concierge Model of Care

Pacific Point Podiatry’s concierge model of care ensures highly personalized, comprehensive care for our patients. Preserving the direct relationship between the patient and physician without insurance regulation allows us to elevate customized care. Paying high monthly insurance premiums for routine office visits is no longer a necessity. You will always know the cost of services and never get a surprise bill from us. This puts you in full control of your medical health and gives you access to expert care.

You can afford exceptional care with our concierge model because:

  1. We see fewer patients, therefore Dr. Tea is able to spend more time with you.
  2. Dr. Tea focuses on your overall well-being. Her therapies have been backed by science and experience. She is committed to ongoing education to bring the most modern and innovative techniques to her patients.
  3. We do not contract with Medicare or Medicaid insurance. That means you will have direct access to Dr. Tea without delay. Decisions for your health will be made by you and Dr. Tea, and not influenced by a third-party payor.
  4. Faster appointment times with in-person or virtual appointments. Urgent cases can often be seen within the next business day.
  5. We value clear communication, the ability to choose, and price transparency. You will always know the cost of treatment upfront so you can make an informed decision that works with your budget. We offer Care Credit to help manage your medical expenses without interest.*
  6. Dr. Tea provides expert care and is the only fellowship-trained wound specialist who also specializes in minimally invasive surgery in all of Santa Cruz and Monterey Counties. No hospital, no hardware, and minimal downtime.
