What Is Concierge Medicine?
Isn’t it time you got the VIP treatment you deserve at the doctor’s office?
Most medical practices are forced to overschedule patient appointments in order to stay in business – but there are only so many patients a doctor can see in a day. When medical practices are that rushed, it’s difficult to provide adequate healthcare, and things are bound to get missed with so many patients and health histories to juggle.
Concierge medicine, however, is different. It allows doctors to take on fewer patients because patients pay an annual fee to join a membership-based concierge care plan at the practice. Concierge care is essentially a type of VIP program, in which patients have receive enhanced healthcare services, including same-day or next-day appointments, and the ability to reach their doctor at any time, day or night, when needed. Most importantly, you get a doctor who is committed to you and your healthcare needs.
At Lake Oconee Concierge Medicine, the personalized medicine we offer allows us to level-up our healthcare services – so you get the best medical care, customer service, and doctor-patient relationship.
We spend quality one-on-one time with our concierge patients. Our focus is big-picture and comprehensive: we aim to treat your mind, body, and spirt.

Our focus is on prevention, early detection of problems, and overall wellness. It is our goal to see you not just healthy but thriving and living your very best life.
More Time, Greater Availability
In a way, concierge medicine represents a return to old-fashioned values, back when doctors made house calls and really got to know their patients. This was a time when the family doctor could be counted on in times of crisis and was there to help celebrate many of life’s transitions and milestones.
This is the level of service we aspire to at Lake Oconee Concierge Medicine. We invest our time, expertise, and compassion into our relationships with our patients, which are built on trust, respect, and care. It’s the type of care we imagined being able to give patients back when we first started our medical training. Our patients benefit by more quality time with their doctor as well as 24/7 physician availability. Find out why you should choose a concierge doctor.
We’re here to prioritize your health and wellness – isn’t it time you did, too?
