5 Things to Consider Before Buying Preventive Medicine


Of course, we at Tiger Medical Institute want people to join our program who could receive significant benefits and for who it is suitable.

If this program happens not to be the best fit for you… that is okay!

When evaluating which preventive medicine program to use, here are five items to consider when looking at preventive medicine programs and where Tiger stands with them.

5 Considerations When Considering Preventive Medicine Programs

1. Price

As price is something to consider with nearly everything in life, we want to be straight up with our pricing and why we have our programs listed on our website – no hidden agenda, no trap sales calls. Just this is what we offer and what it costs.

Other programs are cheaper out there, and others are more expensive. However, others only offer some of what we do.

We have a premium product for a premium price. The right question to ask is not can I afford this program, but can I NOT afford to look into a program like this for my health?

2. Healthcare Administration

When my wife and I decide where to go for dinner on date night, she searches deeply into yelp reviews to help inform her decision to ensure our money is well spent and the chefs are top-notch.

While Tiger Medical is not on Yelp, we have board-certified physicians uniquely trained in root-cause medicine.

3. Duration

Preventive medicine is not about quick, short-term fixes. It is a more comprehensive, holistic approach that can take time for several reasons – some of those reasons are related to those in charge of client care and on the client for implementing the various suggestions into their life.

Tiger Medical is set up for short-term care (1 year), and longer-term continued care as needed for those who want/may need more extended care for health optimization.

Preventive medicine is not an annual visit to a PMC; receive a prescription refill and be on your way.

Preventive medicine is looking at treatment before illness and long-term solutions.

4. Patience

We are not anti-short-term solutions. Many of our suggestions can immediately impact your health and well-being. However, many of our health initiatives revolve around lifestyle transformation.

With this long-term approach in mind, patience is essential as life can get in the way, and sometimes inconsistencies can arise due to holidays, work circumstances, etc.

Being patient and gracious to yourself is essential when evaluating any program like Tiger Medical.

5. Commitment and Courage

The adage of what you put into something is what you get out of it – no surprises here. It is the same thing.

There is very little that can substitute for good old-fashioned hard work. We ask our clients to work hard, be brave and own their health and life.

What to Consider Before Buying Preventive Medicine

When evaluating preventive medicine programs, there are many items to consider before deciding, let alone a big decision.

Five points to consider are the following:

1. Price or Cost.

Not only cost to your wallet but the margin of your health.

Can you keep getting by with the status quo, or is it time to take the next step and schedule a consultation with preventive medicine?

2. Who’s in charge of your health?

Find the right program with properly certified individuals.

3. Duration.

Do you have the bandwidth to start a program like this?

Are you willing to make time for your health?

4. Owning your health requires patience and takes time.

A basketball game is not necessarily won in one specific moment. It is a buildup of multiple plays, coaching influences, substitutions, etc., that culminates in the overall win or setting up the game-winning shot.

The same for your health in a preventive medicine program.

Where you are now is a culmination of multiple factors that need to be explored and influenced over time for more significant change and results.

5. Commitment and Courage

It takes a willingness to change, dedication to the plan, and courage in preventive medicine programs to set yourself up for the best chance of success.
