Carpe Diem Concierge Medicine is the brain child of a Nurse Practitioner who saw a need for convenient, personal, and home-based care / house calls in Maryland. Ameela, the owner, continued to notice that whenever she, her family, or friends were ill they never were capable of leaving the house to wait in the doctors office or urgent care. Nothing was more fatiguing than getting up to leave the comforts of your own home to sit in an office with others that possibly had more than you did. Moreover, in a busy world full of stay-at-home parents and busy professionals, it was not convenient to stop all you were doing to wait in a waiting room for a physical.“It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.”
CDCM was developed in order to serve an unknown need. CDCM’s goal is to revive Preventative Medicine and a service that was once present in history, house calls. In a society plagued with obesity and chronic illness the answer is not to treat disease when it appears; but to educate, eradicate, and minimize the complications. CDCM aims to provide personal care in which education and relationship building can lend towards better compliance and health outcomes. Our cash pay service affords an opportunity to escape high deductibles and offer a home to those still without health insurance.
Ameela Singh was born in Georgetown, Guyana in South America. Her family migrated when she was 3 and she was raised in Prince George’s County, MD. As a youth, Ameela was always drawn to caring for others whenever her family members were not feeling well or had cuts and bruises. It was inevitable that Ameela would pursue a career in medicine.
Ameela obtained her Bachelors of Science at The University of Maryland, College Park. She then focused her career path in the field of nursing and obtained her Bachelors of Science in Nursing at Marymount University and her Masters of Science in Nursing at The George Washington University. She was on the Dean’s list at each institute and was further inducted into Sigma Theta Tau, Nursing Honor Society.
Her medical experience spans many specialties and fields. She began as a RN at The George Washington University Hospital where she served in the NICU and many Med-surg areas: Acute Stroke, Pulmonary care, Neuro, Ortho, Oncology, and various other medicine services. As a Nurse Practitioner, Ameela has experience in acute primary care, preventative and functional medicine. She has a strong desire to continue to serve her community, under-served communities, and those in need here and abroad. Her one goal if asked, “is to leave a tiny foot print in someone’s life”.
