Our Guide to Marin Health and Wellness Leaders in 2024

Marin County tops the lists for longevity, but it is also one of healthiest places to live in the country. Why? Well, we’d like to say it’s because of the talents of the health and wellness providers. Here’s our guide to the best.

Eric Pifer, M.D.

San Francisco Concierge Medicine

As medical director of Sutter Health’s San Francisco Concierge Medicine, I look forward to working with you to map out a comprehensive plan for your well-being — physical, mental and emotional. Our care philosophy centers on a personalized, whole-person approach to a small number of patients. When health challenges arise, you can reach me day or night by phone, video conference or in the office. I even make house calls. If you need a specialist, I’ll engage my network of top physicians at CPMC and beyond. You’ll also have unparalleled access to a team of integrative health specialists from the renowned Institute for Health & Healing.

My passion for high-quality care led me to be a clinical educator and assistant professor at the University of Pennsylvania and a two-time chief medical officer who developed a wide variety of innovative programs, from treating cancer and heart disease to optimizing women’s health and brain wellness. At SF Concierge Medicine, we stay on the leading edge of primary care by employing state-of-the-art diagnostics, specialized testing and wearable tech to help pinpoint the right solutions for you.

Now established in Tiburon, most weekends you’ll find me sailing on the San Francisco Bay in my sloop, Farah, which means “joy” in Arabic, my wife’s first language.

We are very excited to offer the Tixel treatment. Tixel is the first and only Thermal Mechanical Action technology for superior skin resurfacing results on all skin types. It is an effective treatment for lines around the eyes, tightening eyelids, and dramatically improving tightness and tone.

We are now offering the SkinVive treatment that creates long-term hydration in the skin by injecting a series of micro-droplets of hyaluronic acid without adding fullness or volume. It will leave you with a smoother and more radiant appearance that lasts up to 6 months. Now is always the best time to take the first step toward self-care! At Belle Marin we strive to provide treatments that are tailored to create a healthy glow and natural looking results.
