CMT Opening Address

“Do For One Patient What You Wish You
Could Do For Every Patient.”
Friday, October 22, 2021 @830-9am ET

“With hospitality as the backdrop, we’ll explore a few practical tips and tricks that can inspire you, your Patients and your staff to set the tone for “guests” to come back again and again and ultimately, live a healthier lifestyle with you quarterbacking their care … “We must remove every possible obstacle from the walkway of the worried, restless, irritated, annoyed, fretful, angry, depressed, concerned patient,” says Michael Tetreault, Host of the CMT Concierge Medicine Forum and Editor of the international trade publication, Concierge Medicine Today. “It requires an extra step in preparation which most medical offices and corporate leadership running medical offices are simply unwilling and don’t want to do. It’s different because it has to be. Patients today demand different. They deserve more. But this is how we lead Patients into a trusted and confidence-based relationship with their Doctor … by removing every possible obstacle on their path, one day, one step at a time. The goal is progress, not perfection and we must continue to lean in and support Doctors and teams that are will to do what’s difficult and raise the standard of care to a higher level.””

2021 CMT Keynote Speaker

“Treating Aging As A Disease.”
Friday, October 22, 2021 @9am ET

“We live in an era when simply extending lifespan is no longer the goal. Today, many people focus on “healthspan” meaning the number of years they feel healthy, stay active, and enjoy the vitality of both mind and body. Research into the revitalizing powers of oxygen has been in the spotlight recently. In October 2019, the Nobel Prize for Medicine was awarded to three researchers for their discovery of how living cells sense and react to changes in oxygen levels. Today, we understand that our body senses fluctuations in oxygen, and that rejuvenation processes can actually be triggered by these oxygen fluctuations. This is one of the main principles behind the Aviv medical protocol.”
~Dr. Shai Efrati, AVIV CLinics, (Israel; Florida) Director of the Sagol Center for Hyperbaric Medicine and Research, Shamir (Assaf-Harofeh) Medical Center, Israel; Director of Research & Development, Shamir (Assaf-Harofeh) Medical Center, Israel; Professor at Sackler School of Medicine and the Sagol School of Neuroscience of Tel Aviv University.
