Just as Golden State Lifeguards has raised the bar in the Los Angeles private lifeguarding field, Willow Healing Center based in Woodland Hills located just outside of Los Angeles in the San Fernando Valley has raised the bar in medical care. Normally we do not blog about others however we feel we need to pay credit, where credit is due. Our visitors need to read about this new service which is gaining traction nationwide. For the record, we are not being paid to write this and we are not even compelled to do this but when something this good comes along, we want people to know about it. We want people to know about Dr. Michael Lewis, the founder of Willow Healing Center!
As they say, first impressions are the most important! When meeting Dr. Lewis for the first time, our impression was this guy was dressed like a cool hipster with a very professional demeanor. There was something about him that signaled this was the guy! Most of us have or have had quite stuffy doctors with no personality however Dr. Lewis was not what we expected. His office reflects his personality and you could just sit in there for a long while admiring his books and the decor! He is about as good as they come and quite refreshing to say the least.
Willow Healing Center specializes in concierge medicine. What is concierge medicine or also known as retainer medicine?
It is a relationship between a patient and a primary care physician in which the patient pays an annual fee or retainer. This may or may not be in addition to other charges. In exchange for the retainer, Willow Healing Center provides enhanced care, including a commitment to limit patient rosters to ensure adequate time and availability for each patient. How many have a doctor in an HMO that overbooks and makes you wait for an hour just to see them? We believe that most of us have had that problem.

What we love about Willow Healing Center is that as you walk into the lobby of the offices, you are greeted by a sense of warmth that is usually not present in a normal doctor’s office. The decor is very earthy and very calming. Upon arrival, you can help yourself to a cup of complimentary coffee or water which is great. One tends to feel quite relaxed which makes the visit so worthwhile.
If you have an appointment at a specific time, expect to be seen at the designated time. Wait, what’s that you ask? Yes, no more waiting an hour to see the doctor and most likely for a 15 minute visit. Dr. Lewis likes to spend as much time as he can during your appointment to fully absorb your reasons for the visit and goes to great lengths to address the medical issue you are there for. Customarily on your visit to the center, you can expect to have at least a 45 minute conversation with the doctor to discuss your medical history which is unheard of! This is unheard of in the world of HMO’s and PPO’s.
We highly recommend Willow Healing Center. You will not regret it!
