Off topic, sorta. What do you know about Iora Health?
In truth, until about 10 years ago I didn't know much about dealing with USA Healthcare. Except for innoculations, I never bought into the whole "preventive medicine" deal. Blessed with excelllant health, years passed between visits. I was willing to take responsibility for my own well-being and knew I could do more to maintain my health than physicians could.
Times have changed. Today, juggling the sometimes conflicting recommendation of four specialists, I could really use the advice of someone who could look at the whole picture, and knows more about medicine than I do. Theoretically, that would be my PCP. But...
I think he's a good doctor but I never feel like he knows me and I don't like the practice. I find myself vaguely dissatisfied, anticipating that any visit will be a hassle--minor, never a deal breatker--for one reason or the other. The more often I see them, the more I wish for something different.
A flyer came from Iora Health which takes only Medicare clients and promises a different approach to geriatric care. I'm cynical. I'm not sure how much wiggle room the US healthcare system has. I also wonder, in my cynicism, if it's fancy-dressed scheme for milking Medicare.
There's a lot of collective wisdom here at Pacemaker Club. So, I'm asking. Anybody here with experience with Iora? Is it different? Good?
