Igor’s Riviera Real Estate News
No Other Realtor Has Sold More Homes in the Hollywood Riviera Since 2003

When is a waiting room not a waiting
room? When it’s in a concierge medical
practice, like the one offered by Riviera
residents Thomas LaGrelius, MD and his
partner, Nicole Lawrence, MD, at Skypark
Preferred Family Care.
Unlike traditional medical offices,
concierge practices allow doctors to limit
the size of their client base to a few
hundred rather than several thousand
patients. As a result, patients can make
same-day appointments, spend more time
with their doctor, and reach their physician
by phone or text 24 hours a day year-round.
And as for the traditional waiting room
with boring magazines and long waits? The
non-waiting rooms at Skypark Preferred
Family Care offer complimentary snacks
and beverages and almost no time between
checking in and seeing the doctor.
“Our patients joke that they don’t have
time to peruse the magazines before we
call them in,” said Dr. LaGrelius. “But it’s
our personalized, one-on-one care they
really rave about. We’re as concerned about
our patients’ welfare as we would be with a
close relative or friend.”

As part of that care, Drs LaGrelius and
Lawrence have a strong focus on preventive
medicine and long-term health and
wellness. Patients are not limited to a 10minute visit, so there is ample time for
discussion, collaboration and a real focus
on optimizing health. Patients are seen in
whatever environment is best for them,
whether in the office, a hospital or nursing
home – even in their own home when
appropriate.
“The fact that we’re available to our
patients every day, all the time, means they
don’t need to spend an uncomfortable night
or weekend waiting for their doctor’s office
to open,” said Dr. LaGrelius. ”We encourage
our patients to contact us anytime, even
after calling 911 in a medical emergency so

we can help until the paramedics arrive and
then assist with coordinating emergency
care thereafter.”
Dr. LaGrelius knew he wanted to be a
physician at the age of 5, when his
pediatrician convinced him that shots
tickled and the red blood that sprang from
a prick on his finger was the nicest color on
earth. He has specialized in family
medicine since 1977 and geriatric
medicine since 1990.
For Dr. Lawrence, doing community
service at a nursing home while in college
piqued her interest in geriatrics. She is
board-certified in both internal and geriatric
medicine, and also specializes in women’s
health and weight management.
"I love being able to spend time with my
patients and their families, focusing not
just on their health, but also who they are
as people,” said Dr. Lawrence. “This kind of
relationship allows me to practice medicine
in the kind of personalized manner patients
deserve."
Both physicians find concierge medicine
the best way to truly work for their patients,
not an insurance company, a large
healthcare organization or a corporation.
“Concierge practice is the only way to
do ongoing care of geriatric patients in
particular and of all patients for that matter
at the level of quality and attention I want
to provide,” said Dr. LaGrelius. “The
insurance system is a failure at providing
primary care coverage because primary
care is not an ‘insurable event’ like two
weeks in the ICU or a major back surgery.
Primary care is an ongoing, inexpensive
process that should be budgeted and paid
for like food, clothing and shelter. It does
not fit into the insurance model. Therefore,
concierge medicine is the solution. With
today’s medicine, the insurance company is
the customer. With concierge the patient is
the customer.”
Dr. LaGrelius and his wife, Patti, have
lived in the Riviera since 1985 and raised
three kids here.
“The Riviera is the best kept real estate
secret in California,” he said. “I can be at
the office or hospital in five minutes. I can

Beach to Malibu from my front window. I
can walk to the beach, shopping and
restaurants in minutes. It is far enough
away from freeways to make it safe and
almost rural. Furthermore, we are
surrounded by fabulous neighbors we love.
This is truly the best place to live on earth.”
Dr. Lawrence moved to the Riviera one
year ago with her husband, Ryan, a rocket
scientist with Millenium Space Systems in
El Segundo.
"Our family loves to take walks around
the winding neighborhood streets,” said Dr.
Lawrence. “We enjoy being so close to the
ocean and the shops and restaurants in the
Riviera Village. It is the perfect place to
raise our son."

Dear Igor:
Laura and I just wanted to say thank you again in finding our new home, as
well as selling our existing property. To say that you were wonderful and that
you are an asset to RE/MAX is an understatement!
Your professionalism, experience, and hard work throughout our transaction on both properties was completely amazing. You not only guided us
through uncovering some unknowns, but you also helped us with the positives
and negatives to the decisions that we needed to make when these unknown
items were brought to surface.
In selling our property, your recommendation on staging and appraisals/
timing not only helped us receive a record sale price on the condo unit in a
very quick escrow, but we were extremely happy to receive above asking and
multiple offers. This would absolutely not have happened without your guidance and input!
Because of your hard work and efforts, we strongly feel that Wesley and
Matthew will not only have a place to live, but a home that they very possibly
will grow up in and enjoy for the duration of their childhood. We are not only
happy with your service and being our real estate agent, but we
consider you a friend.
Thank you again Igor. Anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the South
Bay area would need to think twice before not using you as their agent. Please
feel free to have any potential clients call or email Laura and I if they would
like a reference, and we would be happy to share our wonderful experience
with others.
Regards,
Alex Froloff and Laura Heyn
