GLOBAL MEDICAL ADVISORS® (GMA) offers personalized and confidential medical concierge and private health management to individuals and families worldwide.
Our mission is to be your lifetime healthcare partner – to ensure that you will have the best care when you need it, and where you need it.
Needing medical care is stressful under the best of circumstances. These days, whether you reside in the United States, Europe, Asia, or anywhere else in the world, you often face bureaucratic hassles, and overemphasis on testing and procedures. In addition, there may be concerns around lack of privacy and unacknowledged conflicts of interest.
In response to this growing need, medical concierge concepts are now being promoted by numerous companies, many of which are operated as a referral service by business professionals, and not by doctors. Some hospitals offer VIP concierge service, but mainly promote their own brand. By contrast, GLOBAL MEDICAL ADVISORS accesses an independent network of world-class doctors who can provide you with a global insider perspective on medical research and practice trends. Combined with an understanding of the requirements of the busy world citizen, we shield you and your loved ones from the challenges of 21st century health care.
