LernerCohen Healthcare – a Sarasota-based practice providing complete concierge medical care – proudly celebrated its tenth anniversary of delivering exceptional concierge care medical services under the direction of board-certified doctors Brad S. Lerner and Louis M. Cohen. “From the very beginning, Dr. Cohen and I have sought to offer a more proactive and personalized approach than traditional practices, with a focus on preventive care and wellness,” said Dr. Lerner. “We are thrilled to mark our tenth year of assuring that our patients’ healthcare needs are addressed efficiently and effectively at all times.”

To coincide with the ten-year milestone, LernerCohen recently added Dr. James Cocco to its team of board-certified physicians, and is in the process of expanding its footprint at the Waldemere Medical Plaza to include an additional 1,200 square feet for exam rooms, patient areas and office space. “We’ve grown substantially since we began our practice, from a staff of five to a full-time team of 13,” said Dr. Cohen. “This escalation in both resources and space better positions LernerCohen Healthcare to maintain the high level of attention and comfort we provide each patient.”

One of the first true concierge medical practices established in the Sarasota area, LernerCohen only accepts a limited number of patients, allowing the physicians the opportunity to know each patient on a personal level, along with their individual medical history. Drs. Lerner, Cohen and Cocco make themselves available to patients 24 hours a day, seven days a week, as patients are given their doctor’s direct cell phone number – a level of access unmatched by traditional medical care providers. Among the concierge services included are unlimited office visits, on-site dietitian, physical therapy, daily hospital visits, supervision of patients' outside testing, facilitation of appointments with top specialists and surgery coordination.
