Primary Care

James W. Reed III, MD is a Board Certified Family Medicine physician


At Reed Medical Group, you don’t just visit the doctor. You partner with Dr. Reed to navigate your health universe toward solid goals. Dr. Reed is a concierge physician, which means that he has the tools and the time to deliver personalized, on-demand health-care without the normal bureaucracy that you may experience in a traditional healthcare setting.

Some Primary Care treatments and services we provide:



Smaller Patient Panels = Stronger Doctor-Patient Relationships

Reed Medical Group limits the size of its patient panel.  This enables Dr. Reed, and the other physicians in his practice, to spend more time with you, as a team. There is time to genuinely understand your medical history, lifestyle, and personal preferences, leading to better and more informed healthcare decisions. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions, discuss concerns, and receive thorough explanations without feeling rushed. 

Personalized care, conveniently located on Longboat Key

Concierge medicine, also known as membership medicine, personalized healthcare, or retainer-based medicine, is a unique healthcare model that offers a high level of personalized attention and treatment, as well as  direct access to a primary care physician and their resources. 

One of the key differences between concierge medicine and traditional medicine is the enhanced relationship and communication with healthcare providers. In a concierge practice, patients typically enjoy longer appointment times, same or next-day appointments, and the ability to communicate directly with their healthcare providers at appointments or via phone or email.

Another distinguishing feature of concierge medicine is its focus on preventive care. By emphasizing the importance of maintaining good health and detecting potential issues early, concierge practices aim to prevent illness and promote overall well-being. Patients can expect individualized care, comprehensive annual physicals, and a proactive approach to managing their health.

Instead of being just another number in a massive health system, you will engage in personalized and targeted care from Dr. James Reed and his entire clinical and administrative team.

The benefits of being a concierge patient of Reed Medical Group include:

  • Full scope of primary care starting with our team building a complete picture of your health to address all your medical concerns.
  • Individualized care tailored specifically for you. We do not believe in cookie-cutter or a one-size-fits-all approach.
  • Unrushed office visits that allow for a comprehensive and detailed analysis of your health.  
  • Continuous open discussions between doctor, patients, and family regarding your care. 
  • In-office hematology lab services for ultimate convenience are included in your membership.
  • Continuous care and specialist coordination. If you require further specialized care, Dr. Reed will ensure you are taken care of and set you up for success with one of the many specialty doctors he has developed strong relationships with throughout the area. Our team will manage your care, ensuring seamless communication and collaboration between providers. 
  • 24/7 care availability and round-the-clock access to our staff and services via phone, email, or text, providing peace of mind and prompt attention during urgent medical concerns.
  • Limited membership base to maintain the integrity of quality care.
  • Telemedicine appointments that provide access to medical care from the comfort of your home. This is especially helpful for snowbirds, those with transportation issues, or disabilities.

Interested in first-class personalized health care? Call our office or complete our online contact form. You can also schedule a time to visit the office, meet the team, and ask any questions pertinent to your care before making a decision.

Once we receive your completed paperwork and first payment, you will secure your spot on our limited patient panel.  Memberships are renewed on an annual basis, but we are flexible with  payment schedules (monthly, quarterly, semiannual, etc.) upon request.  We accept major credit cards, checks, and cash.

At the start of your membership, our team will collect your past medical records to build a complete medical history and profile ahead of your first appointment.  Plan to spend at least an hour with Dr. Reed as he gets to know you, understand your lifestyle, and develop a customized plan to address your health concerns.

From that point forward, we will be your personal healthcare advocates and our partnership will begin!  Simply call the office whenever the need arises, and we will handle the rest.  Whether you need an appointment, a prescription refill, a referral, or just a phone call, we will make sure your needs are fulfilled.

By joining Reed Medical Group, you partner with us to produce the very best outcome for your health and life. 

A major benefit of our membership model is that it allows us to provide care independently of insurance requirements.  Rather than waiting weeks or potentially months for approval, we administer treatment right away.  Your membership fee will cover the vast majority of claims that insurance may decline to pay.  This means there are typically no additional costs for the patient beyond the membership fee.
