As a physician, you like to think you have the resources and relationships to take care of your family’s medical needs, but sometimes we’re in the same boat as everyone else. When my college-aged daughter called home to report that she had twisted her ankle and had not been able to put full weight on it for a week, I immediately contacted PinnacleCare for help.

Even as a doctor, my own healthcare resources aren’t deep enough to facilitate the best care for my family anytime, anywhere.

I feared that she might have a fractured ankle and wanted her to be seen by the best orthopedic surgeon in the area. It was extremely frustrating because I knew my connections could not help in another state.

Within hours after I had called PinnacleCare to explain our situation, I received a follow-up call to notify me that they had arranged an appointment with a top specialist for our daughter that afternoon.

Even as a doctor, my own healthcare resources aren’t deep enough to facilitate the best care for my family anytime, anywhere. Now as PinnacleCare members, those resources are only a phone call away.
