(New York, NY)     MD Medical Navigators, LLC (mdmednav.com), a prominent health advisory firm made up of leading physicians throughout the world, announced today that it has partnered with Canyon Ranch, one of the world’s foremost health and wellness brands. MD Medical Navigators specializes in crisis medical management and is known for their hands-on approach to healthcare by personalizing the patient-doctor experience.  By intimately pairing an individual up with a top-tier physician at an acclaimed academic hospital, MD Medical Navigators provides clients with a life-long health manager, expert guide and advocate. The company also delivers unparalleled connections to renowned specialists throughout the world and provides patient education, advocacy and meaningful communication with the family and the treating medical team.

Medical Navigation is a novel solution to personalized healthcare whereby a top-tier physician is retained to serve as a life-long health advisor, guide and advocate for those who need assistance in making cogent and educated decisions when it comes to all matters of their health. The partnership complements the integrative wellness practice at Canyon Ranch by offering medical navigation as part of its commitment to customize medical experiences.

“We are proud to be the first health and wellness brand to offer medical navigation to our homeowners, members and guests” says Mark Liponis, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Canyon Ranch Lenox. “In the rare occasions our guests’ results convey a serious medical issue, they can leave Canyon Ranch with the security knowing they are in the competent hands of physicians who are part of the prestigious MD Medical Navigators world-wide network.”

“It was important to MD Medical Navigators to partner with a brand that shared our philosophy,” says Brendan Amyot, CEO of MD Medical Navigators, LLC. “When a patient is facing a medical issue or crisis, it is so important for them to be able to concentrate on their well-being. My hope is that all of our clients take advantage of the Canyon Ranch experience before, during and after their treatment.”

All Navigators at MD Medical Navigators are hand-picked based on key qualifications of academic distinction and their ability to connect with patients emotionally.  Relationship building, exclusivity, communication and continuity are key components of the MD Medical Navigator experience and all interactions take place directly between the navigator and client as opposed to a third party.  “We want our clients to feel that they have a direct line whenever and wherever they need their personal navigator and are not limited by time and engagements with a doctor when it comes to making a major health decision,” says Dr. Jonathan Cohen, Founder and Chief Medical Officer of MD Medical Navigators. “By directly communicating with a navigator who understands your health concerns, a client feels less stress when time restraints require immediate answers about a condition.”

As part of this partnership, Canyon Ranch will distribute a series of special offers to MD Medical Navigators clients. These packages also include guidance by Canyon Ranch physicians, nutritionists, life management experts and exercise physiologists.  In addition, Canyon Ranch guests, members, staff and all Canyon Ranch home owners will be offered special preferred introductory rates to MD Medical Navigators.
