The Center for Longevity and Wellness Membership

  • 1 Annual Fee Show More

    The Center for Longevity and Wellness, LLC is a unique medical practice seeking to revitalize medical care by delivering healthcare that meets the needs of our patients.  In order to meet these needs, CLW charges a fee that you pay once a year to receive services that are necessary to accessing comprehensive healthcare. Our annual fee is not covered by insurance companies or Medicare.  However, the fee may be reimbursable through your company’s flexible spending account and/or medical savings plan.

  • 2 What are the benefits of joining CLW? Show More

    Our philosophy of treating patients includes readily available access and extended appointments.  That is why every patient is given his or her doctor’s home phone, e-mail address, and direct office line.  Furthermore, we guarantee same-day and next-day, acute illness appointments with little or no waiting time before your scheduled appointment.  Listed below are some examples of services covered by the annual fee.

  • 3 Treatment of ailments via telephone and/or e-mail when appropriate. Show More

    Through detailed telephone conversations and/or e-mail exchanges, patients may sometimes obtain relief from symptoms or referrals to specialists without the delay of an office visit.  Many patients benefit from this service because our physicians spend time and energy keeping you out of the hospital.

  • 4 Extended telephone consultations without a related encounter. Show More

    This works great for medication adjustments, interpretation of diagnostic tests, a family conversation when facing difficult decisions, and answering questions about your care.

  • 5 E-Mail communications with the physician without a related encounter. Show More

    This is a great way to communicate when time is less of an issue or when you prefer written answers to your questions.  This is also useful when you want to share information with family or friends.

    Finally, discounts are given to our members for our medical spa services and supplements which are sometimes recommended as treatment for illness, or in support of a program to improve wellness and promote longevity.

Dr. Joseph Mather is Board Certified in Family Medicine with the American Board of Family Medicine and Dr. James Mansfield is Board Certified in Internal Medicine with the American Board of Internal Medicine.  As patient advocates, Dr. Mather and Dr. Mansfield are sympathetic and experienced interpersonal counselors of preventive medicine and diagnoses, delivering comprehensive, ongoing care for complex or severe multi-organ disease, from adolescence through senescence.

The Primary Care Physician is the continuing and current expression of the doctor in our society.  The first physicians were generalists, and for hundreds of years provided medical care for all ailments.  As medical technology grew, many physicians chose to limit their field of practice to defined areas of medicine.  In the twenty first century, we fill the medical role providing personal, primary care.

In the role of primary care specialists, our physicians integrate the clinical, biological, and behavioral sciences with scholarly medical analysis.  Our physicians act as consultant and teacher for both individuals and their families.

To a great extent, we have the ability to alter the body’s aging process.  By doing so, individuals can arrive at an advanced level of physical, social, and psychological well-being, extending the body’s lifespan in a healthy, harmonious way.  One of the main aspects of Longevity Medicine is to prevent disease and assure maximum attainable health.
Our goal is to intervene effectively at the earliest detectable signs of a suboptimal physiologic state, rather than waiting for extensive pathology to occur, manifesting itself in clinical disease.

This program helps you take control of your own health.  We will be there to guide you through this process, and assist you in achieving the highest level of health and longevity possible.  The ultimate goal is to maximize both one’s lifespan and health span, and by doing so, adding not just years to your life, but life to your years.
