Trade Winds Family Medicine Opens First of Its Kind Clinic in Kailua
Trade Winds Family Medicine, located in Kailua, Hawaii, announces the opening of its first "no wait, no rush" family medicine clinic.
At the core of Trade Winds’ philosophy is the belief that patients must be afforded adequate time with highly-trained nurses, physicians and providers during each visit in order to provide the level of service, personalized approach and attention to detail demanded from today’s sophisticated patient population. Furthermore, the clinic is based upon the premise that in order to provide exceptional care, medical services must be delivered on time, every time.
To achieve these goals Trade Winds developed a comprehensive team approach to patient care using an advanced operating model which ensures that the provider and nursing staff are better able to give individualized care to each patient, and that every patient has sufficient time to communicate their concerns and further educate themselves about their health. Instead of spending time in a waiting room, Trade Winds’ patients spend that valuable time with medical personnel. This has allowed Trade Winds to offer improved patient-provider relationships through consistent provider matching and more time with experienced medical personnel while maintaining a perfect record of on-time appointments.
“We are absolutely delighted to offer something so unique and patient centered,” said Dr. Kimberly Lund. “We worked very hard to integrate what we call the ‘no wait, no rush’ healthcare model into the practice as we believe it exponentially improves the quality of care that we are able to provide while dramatically improving our relationships with our patients. It is our hope that our patients will benefit not only from the ‘no wait, no rush’ visit, but more importantly from the longer-term improvement in their health that will come from our spending more time with them.”
In its first two months of operation, the clinic witnessed significant growth, adding an additional physician to compliment its already wide range of services. Trade Winds Family Medicine continues to actively build its practice and is currently accepting new patients .
“We’ve seen an incredible response to how we provide care,” said Dr. Elaine Colby. “We have some of the highest quality staff I’ve ever worked with. Their experience and enthusiasm, coupled with Trade Winds’ personalized approach, means that our patients are spending more quality time with their care-givers and less time waiting for them. This improves the quality of care our patients receive, and ensures that patients who are already taking time out of their busy schedules to come to the doctor are making the most effective use of their time.”
Trade Winds is open Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm, except major holidays, and can be reached at (808)263-7383 to schedule an appointment. Trade Winds accepts most major forms of insurance.
