Event, Location and Tour Medical Management
Artists often spend quite a bit of time traveling to accommodate hectic tour or event schedules. We offer comprehensive concierge healthcare support and options that are convenient and practical for artists and other talent, managers and other support crew when they are staying locally, nationally and internationally. A board certified experienced physician will be available 24/7 for discrete medical care at production shoots, sets, theatrical venues,studios, events and concerts or any other convenient location (including hotels and private residences) or at our office or to provide exceptional medical services and treatments as necessary.
We also offer comprehensive destination-specific pre-travel consultations are customized to the needs of artists who are traveling internationally. During the approximately 1-hour pre-travel consultation and physical examination, patients learn all potential risks of their trip and are given specific instructions for contacting us if they become ill while abroad. Pre-travel consultations also include immunity screening and prophylactic antibiotic, anti-diarrheal, altitude illness and anti-malaria prescriptions. All routine, required, and recommended vaccinations are available.
The risks and benefits of medications and vaccinations are discussed, and the patient’s questions are answered. Travel insurance and security issues are discussed in detail. All patients receive customized trip itineraries containing destination-specific health information. Services are also available for completion of visa requirement forms for international travel including yellow fever vaccination certificates.
We also provide comprehensive consultations during and after a patient’s trip. If an artist or crew member becomes ill while abroad, we coordinate medical care with our extensive network of top international physicians or assist in arranging for evacuation. Consultations via e-mail, video teleconferencing, and still digital imaging are available as well. Post-travel consultations and treatments are available to patients who require medical care after returning from their trip.
Medical escorting services are also available for artists who wish to be accompanied by Dr. Primas while traveling for that additional "peace of mind".
We also provide cast and crew preproduction physical examinations as well as insurance examinations for talent who need to cancel shoots or concerts due to unforeseen illness or injury. In addition, we provide certified ancillary staff including set medics, nurses and physician assistants for those productions that require on site medical assistance.
Medical and technical script consultations for film,television and theatre are also available from our experienced team of medical doctors who are well versed in this. We can assist in rewriting existing scripts or polish specific aspects of it, including structure, characterization, dialogue, pacing, theme, and other elements so it sounds professional and precise. We can also be on set to help ensure that the medical details of each aspect of the shoot is medically accurate.
