Dr. Cathy Grellet, MD
Los Gatos, CA
After her breast cancer diagnosis, Dr. Grellet realized she couldn’t continue the same grueling pace, seeing 26 to 30 patients a day. She began considering concierge medicine, and was drawn to the flexible SignatureMD model.
“No one was dictating to me how to practice medicine,” Dr. Grellet says. She prides herself on providing thoughtful comprehensive care, and didn’t want a third party mandating that she conduct specific tests during annual physicals, for example. “I want the freedom to use my judgment to personalize care for the person in front of me,” she says.
Since becoming a SignatureMD affiliate, she sees 9 to 12 patients a day. “I don’t bring work home at night, I don’t work on weekends anymore, I do things with friends and work out regularly with a trainer,” Dr. Grellet says. “Life is so much better.”
