FAQs

What is Liv's care philosophy?

We believe healthcare for women needs some work, and that the status quo isn’t good enough for you.  That’s why we’ve built a healthcare experience around you and your needs – not around insurance companies, doctors, or your employer.

We believe in whole-self care, which is why we’ve assembled a diverse clinical team dedicated to a comprehensive continuum of care.  Liv’s integrated services support your whole health, giving you confidence in your care, every single time.

What makes Liv different from a typical doctor's office?

We believe you deserve coordinated, convenient care from a compassionate team that takes the time to listen. At Liv, your Care Team works together to personalize a wellness plan around your distinct needs and goals. Our innovative care model puts you at the center, making it easy to start out healthy and stay that way.

We offer primary care, mental health, obstetrics, and gynecology all housed in one location. We focus on the patient experience and using technology to streamline it by booking appointments and communicating test results. For problems requiring a specialist, we promise your records will make it to their offices and in very complicated situations, the providers will speak with the referral doctor directly.

At Liv, we don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all healthcare approach – because you deserve to be treated like the whole woman that you are!

What type of care do you provide?

Your Liv membership gives you access to a full suite of services including gynecology, obstetrics, primary care, mental wellness, and so much more, all under one roof!
