"A Bay Area native, Dr. Jennifer Abrams completed her bachelor’s degree, M.D., and Internal Medicine Residency at Stanford. As an undergrad she was awarded the Dean’s Award for public service. Before medical school, she received a Fulbright scholarship to create a public health internship in Roatan, Honduras. As a resident, Dr. Abrams was formally recognized for her “clinical judgment, leadership, teaching and kindness” with the Julian Wolfsohn award on graduation. Dr. Abrams is an active member of the American Medical Association, The American College of Physicians and the American Academy of Private Physicians. In addition to caring for her patients at The Village Doctor, Dr. Abrams is currently the Physician Director for Be A Good Doctor, a Stanford Haas Public Service Center partner organization dedicated to mentoring our next generation of physicians to cultivate compassion and humanism. She joined us in 2014. “I feel so grateful to practice at The Village Doctor, where I have the opportunity to truly get to know my patients, partnering with them on their unique goals and overall health and wellness.”"
"Imagine having 2,500 clients. How would you find the time to take care of them all? You can’t really. But that’s what the average physician has to deal with today– 2,500 patients to look after. It can mean weeks of waiting for a 10-minute visit. That’s stopwatch medicine. Now imagine reducing that number to 250 patients. 90% fewer patients. It’s more than just healthcare since there’s time to actually care for their health. That’s Concierge Medicine. For the past 15 years, The Village Doctor has taken it even further. We treat everyone from infants to elders, so your entire family gets the care they need. And, since we often treat everyone from grandparents to grandchildren, your internist and pediatrician are able to share information that can affect the health and wellbeing of your entire family. Better health for those you love. It’s all related. Literally. Visits are as short or as long as you like and the time and place is up to you and your doctor. We do not have a stopwatch. Just the opposite, we have the time to stop. And watch. And listen. We also believe that achieving wellness is just as important as eliminating illness. That’s why we work closely with our Wellness Studio providers to achieve that end. Feeling better, feeling good, both physically and emotionally, are all very real, very human needs. When everyone has the time to listen, wellness happens. So, fewer patients and more time. Families as well as individuals. And the belief that wellness really matters. That’s The Village Doctor. I look forward to talking with you soon."
