Concierge Medicine in Santa Barbara
Santa Barbara provides the perfect environment for a luxury surgery, recovery and vacation experience and has become a popular destination for concierge medicine. Santa Barbara is located along the Pacific Coast about 85 miles northwest of Los Angeles. It is bisected by Interstate Highway 101, which links the city to the rest of the Central Coast area. The coastal region of southern Santa Barbara County is often called the “American Riviera” due to its Mediterranean climate. For most of its history, Santa Barbara was a quiet agricultural community. However, in the second half of the 20th century Santa Barbara evolved into a robust, well rounded city. Many early movies were filmed in Santa Barbara during this time and as a result it was known as the “Hollywood of the North.” Much of the city’s architecture is Spanish Colonial style, paying homage to its rich Spanish heritage.
Santa Barbara is renowned for its warm climate, downtown beaches, beautiful views of the Santa Ynez Mountains, and Spanish architecture. There are dozens of wineries in the region, which over the years have earned a reputation for high-quality Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Santa Barbara wine grapes command prices that are amongst the highest in the state of California.
