Who are we?

At DAIM, we believe that you and your doctor should really get to know each other. You should have a relationship, not just a series of 15-minute encounters initiated only when something goes wrong with your health. You should work together as a team and have the kind of access you need to truly optimize your health.

We limit our patient base to about one fourth of what has come to be the norm, which allows us to spend that much more time getting to know each patient, to provide unhurried, high-quality care, and to be available when and where our patients need us.
Meet the team with whom you’ll have this unlimited access!

“I have peace of mind knowing I can speak to my doctor at any time.” – John M.
