Concierge medicine is a medical practice model that allows patients direct access to their doctor without booking appointments and waiting to receive care. Those who choose this mode of care pay a fee to participate and find that the benefits far outweigh the minimal expense.
The concept has been around since the 1990s but was initially tailored to the very wealthy. Today’s concierge medicine model makes concierge services available to everyone.
There are numerous ways that concierge medicine can be an excellent fit for your unique set of health needs. Here are some of the reasons patients prefer this approach to health care.
According to some statistics, patients wait around 24 days before they can get in to see a new doctor. Once inside the office, they can expect to wait nearly 20 minutes before they are called to the back. Concierge medicine allows you to book appointments that fit your needs, including same-day and next-day visits.
Most primary care physicians spend less than 15 minutes working directly with each patient, and under the concierge medicine model, that time averages around 35 minutes. We don’t place a time limit on our patient interactions; we simply give you the time and attention you need during each visit.
Medicare & Medicaid are not accepted.
In many medical practices, patient care can turn into a numbers game. Doctors are pressured to see as many patients as possible, which makes it hard to get to know them. Concierge medicine allows us to understand the men and women in our care, which translates to more personalized medical services, which is always a benefit.
