Where the doctor
waits for you.

OUR HISTORY

Sollis Health was conceived by Dr. Bernard Kruger, referred to as “a family doctor to the stars,” and a pioneer of concierge medicine. He is an internist with a specialty in Medical Oncology, on faculty at Weill Cornell and maintains his private practice on the Upper East Side.

Kruger was initially inspired to create Sollis as an extension of his and other physicians’ practices for after-hours, immediate and emergency care needs.

The way medicine was meant to be practiced.

Our members-only approach to medicine allows physicians get back to why they wanted to practice medicine in the first place. Sollis members are truly our one and only focus.
