Welcome to the Office of Juliet Asher, MD, P.C.
Personalized care for you.
It’s about TIME…
Understanding the complex web of physical, emotional and cultural issues that affect health is vital to providing quality primary care.
This kind of care requires time and dedicated attention to the individual patient that is simply not possible in today’s healthcare system. Physicians are rewarded for treating more patients in less time, which too often results in cursory examinations and rushed visits, without the opportunity to step back and look at the whole picture. That inevitably leads to a feeling that giving a pill or ordering a test is the appropriate response, when, in fact, taking the time to listen to results in more effective care with better outcomes. I believe concierge medicine provides the solution we’re all seeking.
In my concierge practice, patients receive the level of care they need and deserve because there is more time to address complex conditions, answer individual concerns, and offer support to make healthy lifestyle changes. Patients have peace of mind knowing that I will be there whenever needed, providing care in a highly personalized way.

Telemedicine now available
I am pleased to offer my patients the easy to use telemedicine option called Doxy.me as a convenient alternative to in-office appointments for check-ins, prescription refills and other routine matters. Doxy.me is accessed through a simple link that I’ll send by text or email before our virtual visit. All you need is a smart phone or computer with a webcam.
While we can handle many issues via telemedicine, please note that symptoms such as chest or abdominal pain may require a physical exam. Please call my office first so that we may determine if a virtual visit is the best option for you.
"Dr. Asher is very thorough and takes the time to explain things and answer any questions. I have been with Dr. Asher for years and I truly appreciate the level of care and compassion received from her. She is the best!"
"Dr. Asher asked pertinent questions in an articulate, easy manner. She always makes it easy to confide my problems, aches, pains, illnesses, etc, and is excellent with diagnosis and quickly ordering tests."
A Patient Centered Approach
Your care will be coordinated seamlessly to the specialist, to the hospital, or to your home, by the doctor who knows you best. My aim is to create customer service in healthcare, similar to what you would experience with an excellent concierge.
Concierge Medicine Practice
Patient-focused medicine, also known as concierge or membership medicine, is an alternative practice model. It is based on a relationship between a patient and a primary care physician in which the patient pays an annual fee or retainer. Doctors limit their patient panel in order to ensure direct availability and adequate time for each patient. These extended, unrushed visits enable physicians to spend meaningful time with patients, build relationships, and provide more comprehensive, proactive care than in traditional practices.
As a full-service concierge primary care practice, I offer routine care as well as comprehensive annual health assessments which far exceed the traditional standards…individually tailored to optimize your quality of life.
