The ultimate personal medical resource.
The ultimate personal medical resource.
The Comprehensive Wellness Membership is the ultimate personal medical resource for global families and others who desire a different kind of relationship with their physicians. To truly practice medicine at the level that patients deserve, Comprehensive Wellness is partnering with the phenomenal team at WorldClinic to offer a unique level of personalized medical care right here in the Bay Area.
Built on 30 years of experience in emergency medicine and 20 years of practicing telemedicine, the Comprehensive Wellness Membership partners at the WorldClinic offer comprehensive, customized care that ensures patients stay healthy, no matter where in the world.
The membership foundation is built with primary care internal medicine physician, Dr. Rebecca Parish. Dr. Parish is an exceptionally well-respected physician with more than a decade of experience in the San Francisco Bay Area. She is on the medical staff at John Muir Medical Center, a Level One Trauma Center with a national reputation.
The small number of Comprehensive Wellness Membership patients allows Dr. Parish to advocate for her patients within the health system and with other physicians in a way that only a long term, well-respected primary care physician can.
Unlimited Access to Dr. Parish
Office visits and calls/emails are all included. There is no limit on time spent with your physician. Routine vaccines, lab draws, EKGs and office-based injectable medications are all included in your membership.
24/7 Immediate Access to Your Care Team
Immediate diagnosis and treatment by your care team while away from home.
Proactive Medical Risk Management
We leverage the latest science (such as genome analysis and biomarker testing) to create a personalized action plan to reduce the risk of conditions such as hypertension, cancer, and heart disease.
Personal Prescription Medical Kit (PMK)
You will receive a personal medical kit (PMK) stocked with a comprehensive pharmacy of prescription medications to keep with you at all times. This allows your physicians to begin many treatments immediately, whether you are in town or away from home.
Secure Summarized Electronic Medical Records
A central, secure archive of your summarized medical records are available for rapid reference and transfer.
Destination Medical Risk and Resource Contingency Planning
We have access to the latest medical intelligence on worldwide destinations as well as referrals to the best local providers wherever you may be traveling.
Global Medical Evacuation
When emergencies strike while traveling more than 150 miles from your home of record, we coordinate air medical evacuation to bring you home (optional).
On-demand Guarantee of Payment
When traveling internationally, we provide upfront payment for emergency admission or treatment ad foreign medical facilities to prevent any delay in medical care (member agrees to fully reimburse all expenses subject to appropriate documentation of all receipts).
Our partnership with WorldClinic allows us diagnose and treat you remotely, anywhere in the world, at any hour of the day.
The process is straightforward. When you are sick, injured, or have any health concern or question, you call our 24/7 Hotline using the Comprehensive Wellness/WorldClinic app. The physician who answers your call has access to your summarized medical records as well as information about local disease risks and best doctors and hospitals in your location. The physician will interview you and direct you in the use of your personal Prescription Medical Kit (PMK).
We have found that 95% of the time, the combination of our team of physicians and your PMK can fully address most medical problems. In the remaining situations, the physician will begin treatment using your PMK and then facilitate referral to emergency or specialized care. Detailed physician follow-up and tracking of your progress will continue until your issue is fully resolved.
Because we are not tied to a particular insurer, we can provide the highest quality of care and alignment of incentives between patient and physician.
Along with instant physician access, your Prescription Medical Kit (PMK) enables immediate treatment by providing key medications for many common ailments. Your on-call physician will use your PMK to provide immediate treatment and address potential urgent care needs, no matter where you are.
The first thing to do if you experience a medical emergency while abroad is call the 24/7 WorldClinic MD Hotline using the Comprehensive Wellness/WorldClinic app. Our physicians immediately provide care and, if necessary, simultaneously coordinate your transfer to the best local hospital through our geolocation feature. We have a proprietary 9,000-member database of international doctors and providers that meet our high standards. During your care, we confer with the treating doctor, transfer medical records and facilitate evacuation, if needed. We coordinate each step and follow through until you return home safely.
Each member, at the time of their enrollment, has the option to purchase a global medical evacuation policy. The policy term is for one year and provides the member with two medical evacuations per year when 150 miles or more from their home of record when evacuation is needed.
No. Wherever you are, your medical team is there. Whether you’re dealing with an unexpected diagnosis, emerging health concern, or sudden crisis, your membership ensures exceptional care for you and your family at home and abroad, 24/7.
Using the Membership App and PMK can also prevent the need for unnecessary office visits and hassles when you are local, streamlining care safely in coordination with your team.
Membership also provides preventive and longevity planning, chronic disease monitoring, an expert referral network, and coordination of all aspects of your healthcare.
Our membership is unique in that we are a true medical practice. This means that we do not just make recommendations, we take full responsibility for the health of every patient – unlike health advisories and referral services.
In contrast to local concierge physicians, we provide immediate physician access and treatment globally. Connecting local, high quality medical advocacy with our international network is uniquely available through the Membership Program. We also provide care through a platform that integrates every element of your personal medical information to leverage the latest longevity science.
Travel insurance and travel assistance are NOT medical care. With travel assistance, you place a call and then must travel to a care provider you have never met before. This reactive model may create an unacceptable delay and possible miscommunication due to cultural and language differences.
With our membership model, familiar and expert care comes to you with a single phone call, thus addressing your greatest point of risk in a crisis—a delay in receiving effective care.
We do not share personal medical or contact information with any third party under any circumstances without written consent of the member. Membership is a HIPAA-compliant entity as are its pharmacies, evacuation, and USA- based participating physician/hospital partners.
Our clinical team carries a specific medical malpractice policy for delivery of telemedical care. In over 15 years of operation, the company has never been named in a lawsuit or deposed in a medical case. Our competent and caring physicians, along with our care practices, are the keys to our success. We track the progress of every case to closure.
We look forward to a productive and collaborative relationship with you. Dr. Parish and Amber (along with the rest of the Comprehensive Wellness team) work closely together to ensure that you are looked after you in a timely, collaborative and patient-centered manner. Below are some tips for making the most of your membership.
Our goal with the CW Membership is to better align incentives in healthcare between physician and patient. We believe that, if we work together, we can deliver more efficient, personalized care and provide the uncompromised advocacy that we believe all patients need in our current healthcare environment. If there are issues or obstacles that come up, please communicate with our team so that we can help address them to the best of our ability.

Appointments & Medical Records
We like to keep an eye on you! Please make sure that you book an annual physical. In addition to an annual exam, you may access your Membership as much as you would like, in whatever way you are most comfortable.
As a convenient compliment to the service that we provide, we recommend using Alto Pharmacy as allowed by your insurance plan. This San Francisco-based pharmacy delivers at no extra charge and utilizes email and texting to communicate with patients. We are not affiliated with Alto Pharmacy – we just appreciate the service that they can provide to our patients. Set up is easy: www.alto.com for more information.
We want to maximize what your insurance covers with the CW Membership.
Wishing you good health and wellness always,
Dr. Parish, Amber and the CW team
