Z. Michael Taweh, MD, FACP
Premier Medical of CT (PMC) offers a retainer based healthcare plan that gives you personalized care, same-day appointments, and a comprehensive annual wellness exam which includes diagnostic testing and extensive blood panels that are not typically paid for by Medicare or commercial insurance.
Dr. Taweh has been practicing Internal Medicine for over 22 years. In that time, his goal has been to create the optimal practice for patients. Over the years, what he has learned is that the traditional practice model, of fifteen minute office visits, is not enough time to get to know his patients, properly care for them, and help solve their problems. With Premier Medical of CT, Dr. Taweh can provide compassionate care that is never hurried or rushed.
