The Docere Medical Advantage
At Docere Medical, we strive above all else to listen to you without interrupting or judging, provide you with the highest quality procedure available, and make you laugh and feel at home. Here are the reasons we feel we are best suited to perform your procedure:
If you are researching clinics to perform your adult stem cell therapy procedure, the first item to evaluate is the medical staff’s experience in the field of regenerative medicine. Consider this: Dr Adelson opened Docere Clinics in 2002 and since day one, his practice has been 100% regenerative injection therapy procedures. He began performing platelet rich plasma (PRP) in 2006, and adult stem cell procedures in February of 2010, placing him among the very early doctors providing these therapies. Since 2010, his practice has been nearly 100% adult stem cell procedures (the rest being PRP procedures). He has performed almost three thousand adult stem cell procedures that have produced zero adverse outcomes and many satisfied patients. This places him solidly among the most experienced in the world with adult stem cell procedures. He has personally trained Amy Killen, M.D. to lipoaspirate and isolate stem cells from whole fat and coordinated additional, advanced training from The Maestro, Robert Alexander, M.D. Dr. Killen comes to Docere Medical with many years of experience performing injections.
Because adult stem cell therapy for chronic pain is considered experimental, insurance does not pay for it; it is a ‘cash procedure’. Since Docere Clinics opened in 2002, we have been a ‘cash-based practice’ and have never billed insurance. The reason for this is that our philosophy is that we want to work for YOU, not for an insurance company. This means we have always offered and performed the treatments that we deem best and agree upon, rather than only what insurance companies deem they will pay for. Most clinics that offer adult stem cell therapies transitioned to a ‘cash-based practice’ from ‘insurance-based practice’. Because these clinics were originally designed and structured based on a traditional high-volume, insurance-based model, they have large facilities and large support staff. Alternately, cosmetic surgeons with cash-based practices who offer stem cell therapies, often are accustomed to charging very high fees for complex surgeries. Subsequently in both cases, their cash prices are frequently very high in order to pay for their large overhead. Because we have been a ‘cash-based’ practice since day one, our low overhead allows us to charge far less without compromising quality.
Perhaps what sets us apart the most is our patient-centered model. We recognize you first as a human being, and next as our boss. We understand that you are a person, not a diagnosis. Additionally, you are not just any person; you are the very person that pays us to provide you with a service and the reason we’re in business. Our reception area is NOT a ‘waiting room’. We believe that your time is just as valuable as is ours, so we make every effort to stay on time. Next, we spend ample time with you in order to fully understand your condition and not rush procedures. We never over-book or double-book our day. Our strengths are our capacity to really listen to you without interrupting or judging, our procedural skills, our adherence to safety protocols, our close follow-up, and our ability to make people laugh and relax. We’re providing you with a medical procedure, but we feel strongly that we also provide you with a positive human interaction.
