Dr. Suk says..

Doctor Me is a Portland, Oregon medical practice that operates on the membership model to provide primary care. The practice was purpose-built to provide you with topflight care that is confidential, convenient, time-efficient and cost-efficient.

The annual fee per day compares favorably to what many people might spend on a daily basis at their favorite coffee spot.

Choosing Doctor Me represents a quality-of-life measure you can take action on in the short term. After all, isn't it time you had a direct and personal relationship with your doctor? We think so.

Chronic pain, pain that lasts from three to six months or more, affects one in ten adult Americans, according to a 2012 National Health Interview Survey. The sources of chronic pain vary. Chronic pain can linger for months or even years after an initial injury or infection, or it can accompany an ongoing ailment like arthritis or cancer. However, some people are afflicted with chronic pain in the absence of any damage or disease.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Suk says...

Dr. Samuel Suk was born in South Korea and grew up in America's heartland, Missouri to be specific. He graduated from medical school in Kansas City, which aligned his status as a loyal fan of the Royals (baseball) and the Chiefs (football).

The doctor moved to Oregon in 1999, where he worked in private practice for ten years. Then from 2009 to 2014, he served as medical director for the largest federally qualified health clinic in the vicinity of Astoria, Warrenton and Seaside.

Dr. Samuel Suk is married and has three sons. An enthusiastic cyclist and hiker, he's always ready to discuss his favorite writers: Lee Child, Ken Wilber, Jack London, and George R.R. Martin. But his favorite topic will always be your health and wellness.

Dr. Suk's Care Philosophy

Finding a good family doctor can be a challenge, but visiting your family doctor can make you feel like you're running an obstacle course. Appointments are scheduled for the doctor's convenience, not yours. Keeping kids occupied in the waiting room when there may or may not be age-­appropriate entertainment doesn't make it any easier. And they're exposed to sick patients all the while. Calls and emails are answered more often by nurses and office staff than by your doctor.

Our current healthcare system can leave you wondering if it's possible any more to have a relationship with a doctor who knows you, one who is available and accessible when your family needs attention.

Concierge family medicine from Doctor Me may be the answer to your family's healthcare needs.

Instead of rearranging your life around a medical appointment weeks away, you can schedule an appointment for a time that works for you. Often, even a same-­day appointment.

Instead of traveling across town for a long sit in the waiting room, you can schedule a visit from Doctor Me in your own home. Imagine travel and school vaccinations without the added anxiety of the waiting room. When office visits are appropriate, wait times are minimal.

Enjoy direct communication with your family doctor, either by phone or email.

Concierge family medicine from Doctor Me is more affordable than you think, especially when you consider the value of your time and peace of mind. Doctor Me emphasizes wellness and prevention and works with you to create a personal plan for your family's good health.
