As we approach the new year with renewed goals and resolutions, it’s a great time to consider if you are satisfied with your current primary care provider (PCP), or if you’d like to make a switch in 2024. 

Think of your PCP as your project manager or the “quarterback” of your healthcare journey. A PCP has a wide range of responsibilities including regular checkups, managing chronic conditions, specialist referrals, coordinating care with specialists, and ensuring that you don’t miss or duplicate screenings and vaccinations.  With such responsibility, it’s important that you have a PCP you can trust. Visit Primary Care Provider | LifeWise to understand the benefits of a trusted PCP. 

If you are considering a switch in PCPs, consider a Kinwell provider. Kinwell clinics are primary care clinics that are available exclusively to LifeWise members, which means timelier appointment availability. 

Gone are the days of needing to schedule you and your family’s checkups months in advance. Kinwell offers primary care, virtual care, health coaching, and integrated behavioral health care. 

What’s the Kinwell difference?  

Unlike other providers, Kinwell clinicians aren’t paid by the transaction, but by the quality of care delivered to each patient. The foundation of this relationship is open communication and trust. Your clinician is available to you for in-person treatment, online consultations, or a quick chat over the phone.

Dr. Mia Wise, Kinwell’s Chief Medical Officer, elaborates on the Kinwell difference:

"One of the biggest challenges in primary care is that it has become a transaction. Instead of taking care of patients and focusing on outcomes, physicians must push through a whole set of patients each day. Managing that volume becomes the focus instead of patient health and well-being. That diminishes what drove most of us to go into medicine—the desire to help people and make a connection. At Kinwell, we want to create the space and the time needed for patients to feel seen and heard and for clinicians to stay engaged and curious."

Kinwell’s whole-person approach to healthcare includes diet, fitness, and behavioral health. Clinicians are supported by behavioral health specialists who can help you navigate life’s rough patches, and health coaches to encourage smart decisions regarding weight and exercise. 

Kinwell specializes in:

  • Women’s health
  • Bariatric medicine
  • Wellness checkups
  • Integrated behavioral health
  • Onsite blood tests
  • Sports physicals
  • Lifestyle medicine
  • Geriatric Care
