How Freelancers Medical is more than just a doctor’s office

Nov 18, 2014

There’s a lot more to health than tests and 15-minute doctor’s visits.

At Freelancers Union, we believe in a holistic model of health and wellness. Sure, doctors visits and tests are important, but staying well is what helps you thrive in your life and business. And we mean well in all senses: physically, psychologically, and emotionally.

That’s why we built Freelancers Medical, a medical home with locations in lower Manhattan and downtown Brooklyn. Primary care is free and unlimited with health insurance plans through Empire BlueCross BlueShield.

We believe in going above and beyond the norm to offer resources to help you live well: mental health services, diet counseling, acupuncture, yoga, group support, and even Skype calls with health coaches available 24/7.

Come by this week to check out what we’re talking about: Thursday, November 20 in Brooklyn, any time from 4pm-8pm.

In the words of a current member, Jess Grippo:

“It’s so much more than medical attention - they provide the human connection and empathy that, in my opinion, is often missing from our highly busy NYC lifestyles...a loving oasis in the midst of a lot of craziness. And I think you would have to be crazy to NOT join the home they've built. I see it as a model of medical care that is going to make radical shifts in our current system, and I hope that more and more health centers everywhere start to follow in their footsteps.”

Or from Yasuyo Takeo:

“I've never felt so connected with medical providers until I became a patient at Freelancers Medical. They are all about keeping me happy and healthy, and we're on a first name basis! Can't believe I'm making visits to a medical office on a weekly basis for yoga, workshops and acupuncture. The network of professionals there is the number one reason we are staying with Freelancers Medical. Their presence allows me to focus on my work, and I'm very grateful.”

Come see what we’d like to share with you. Hope you can join us at an open house on Thursday. If you can’t make it, let us know when would be a better time for you!
