Great Health is the Ultimate Luxury ™
-- John R. Prufeta, Chairman of Medical Excellence International
Welcome to Medical Excellence! We are a private health advisory firm designed to carefully curate the best doctors, top medical science, and expert management services. The pace of innovation in health care diagnostics and treatment, most notably in the last few years, has been nothing short of amazing. And, in the 2020s we will see the greatest decade of medical advances in the diagnosis and treatment of illness in history. Truly, with the advent of precision health, patients will enjoy a much larger menu of preventative and interventional choices to pursue good health and healthy longevity. Navigating the complex medical innovation landscape is both difficult and, at the same time, highly valuable. Founded in 2007, Medical Excellence is the preeminent Private Health Advisory organization created to provide our Members with preferred access to the best that medicine can offer. Families in four Continents trust Medical Excellence to curate the medical innovation landscape to ensure they are receiving state-of-the-science medical care.
Elite Private Health Advisory Services
Concierge Care Coordination Worldwide. Emphasis: Prevention
Medical Excellence is the preeminent coordinator and facilitator of high-quality care for international patients seeking the finest physicians and health care facilities in the United States. The cornerstone of our approach to health is preventive in nature; we believe that the best health and longevity outcomes are achieved by avoiding altogether the need for catastrophic care, particularly when our clients are distributed across the globe in the pursuit of business, personal, or other endeavors, far from our academic partners.
Nonetheless, we recognize that the nature of medical and surgical illness is unpredictable. Even those with the best and most regular access to primary and preventative care can experience unanticipated illness at any time and at any age, by virtue of injury, accident, or a medical event that arises without warning. This can be true despite having had access to the finest preventative care available. We further recognize the geographic constraints created by the “global mobility” of our members, and the often-limited health care infrastructure in many of the countries where ME members travel and reside. However, regular rigorous preventative medical services significantly de-risks the potential and severity of major illness.
The global mobility of affluent individuals creates another problem that Medical Excellence solves: The health care experiences of high-net-worth individuals – from common colds to orthopedic injuries to unexpected hospitalizations – is typically scattered across the globe, and generally in an uncoordinated fashion. Medical Excellence network physicians augment the care provided by your local doctor, American Physician and Medical Center, whether you are at home, in the United States for your annual evaluation, or traveling anywhere in the world. We do this by understanding, chronicling, and conveying your up-to-the-minute “big picture” health status to your Physician at Home, in the United States, or someone rendering care anywhere in the world. And precisely when it has a bearing on your immediate medical situation.

Telling Our Story
The Science of Cancer
is changing very rapidly within the research labs of the major medical research organizations across the world. Truly, the entire disease category is being revolutionized. New discoveries in treatment methodologies, technologies, and medicines are being developed, approved introduced to patients every day. Only a few institutions in the world have the combined clinical and research capability to perform at the elite level of cancer patient care. For patients with cancer, it is literally life-saving to receive the perfect combination of available science. Medical Excellence has developed close relationships with the leading figures in cancer treatment. As an example, recently we were introduced to a patient suffering greatly from a particularly difficult lymphoma. A retired physician and active outdoorsman, the disease was causing major systemic issues that dramatically affected his quality of life. Walking even two hundred meters taxed all of his energy, forcing him to abandon all of his outdoor activities. This individual had experienced the recommended treatment regimen of his home country, as well as in Europe, and was ready to admit defeat.
One of his family members, already a Medical Excellence member, recommended MEI as a possible alternative. Fortunately, we were able to find the patient an oncology expert that is at the very top of his profession. Having recently participated in the creation of a revolutionary new medication (principally developed by his faculty), he placed our patient on the new drug, which had only received government approval six weeks before. Described literally as “an atomic bomb against lymphoma”, the response was slow at first. We continually monitored his progress each day. However, within three weeks our patient was freely walking and returned to deep sea fishing and most of the activities he enjoys. Today, seven years later, he is symptom-free and living an enjoyable, energetic, and active life. Cutting-edge medicine has much to offer individuals suffering from cancer. Having an advocate to organize treatment, follow-up with doctors and hospitals, and provide personal support provides a solid platform to receive optimal treatment.
We organize the data, build the medical team, arrange the care, manage the information, and stay with the patient throughout their treatment, follow-ups, and long term care. Medical Excellence works as your advocate every step on the road to recovery.
