Why Choose a Concierge Doctor?
How many times have you had a doctor’s appointment, but the 10 minutes you got with the physician felt more like a drive-by obligation than an actual exchange of information critical to your health? Perhaps only later you remembered the questions you still have. Often, people give up at this point, thinking limited time with the doctor and quick fixes are just the nature of the healthcare system today. However, that doesn't have to be the case. There is a new healthcare delivery model that patients and doctors alike are clamoring for.
Concierge medicine is in high demand. Patients pay a membership fee, or retainer, which allows physicians to stay in business serving a smaller patient base. With concierge care, your doctor truly becomes your doctor. Physicians no longer have to squeeze 15 or 20 patient appointments per day just to make ends meet. Instead, your doctor can take the necessary time with you to develop a more intimate and productive doctor-patient relationship. This often results in better care and long-term health for patients. It also allows patients 24/7 availability of their medical provider.
