Dr. Apicella and Dr. Bago began their medical training at Nova Southeastern University in August of 1997. They shared many classes together and began dating in January, 1998. After earning their medical degrees, they both entered the Family Medicine Residency Program at Wellington Regional Medical Center where they became a well-respected duo among their peers and colleagues. Through their hard work and determination they were chosen as Chief and Co-Chief of their residency class in the Family Medicine Program. It was during this time, that they began to formulate the concepts of practice that would become the foundation of the family practice they would later create. They married in 2001.
Premier Family Health, PA was established in 2004. In July of that year, Dr. Apicella and Dr. Bago cared for their first patients in an office on the campus of Wellington Regional Medical Center. It wasn't long before they built out their own office space in their current location, the Wellington Reserve, with the vision of creating the unique model of health care that exists today.
From the very start, Dr. Apicella and Dr. Bago set out to establish a medical practice with a strong focus on wellness and prevention. The physicians knew that empowering patients through education and motivation was key to helping them achieve their health and wellness goals. It was their goal to develop Premier as a Medical Home for patients, offering many needed healthcare services at one location. This innovative model of healthcare delivery, they were certain, would add great value with regard to providing convenience, and continuity of care to their patients.
Today, Premier is one of the most progressive medical practices in Palm Beach County. At the core, is a team of credentialed and experienced medical professionals, a quality and compassionate staff, and comprehensive and convenient medical services. It is our goal to help each patient meet their health & wellness goals and achieve an extraordinary sense of wellbeing. It is with this belief that Premier forges ahead to meet the challenges of healthcare in the future.
