What sets Premise Health apart?
Our goal is to provide healthcare that departs from the status quo. We are far more than just another clinic or doctor’s office. The cornerstone of the Premise Health experience is simple: it’s all about you.
Compared to traditional community medical practices, our providers spend more time building an understanding of your health. It’s a truly different experience. It’s less rushed. It’s more convenient. And it starts with having the right people to take care of you. People who will listen. People who will build a real, trusting relationship with you – leading to better care. Our average wait time is just 2 minutes and our Net Promoter Score – which measures how likely our members are to recommend us – is 88.
