What is concierge medicine?

Concierge medicine is a growing trend across the county and is intended to help preserve the invaluable doctor/patient relationship. The patients that chose to participate in this type of medical care see the tremendous benefits of maintaining a trusting relationship with their own personal physician.

 

The Concierge model is based on providing personalized care to a limited number of patients. This number is typically somewhere between 500 and 600 patients. This allows the physician to fulfill his commitment to giving each patient the opportunity to be seen with little or no waiting time, and to not feel rushed or hurried during the visit. The physician is also available after routine office hours, via direct cell phone access, for those unexpected medical issues that may arise.

 

The patients in this type of practice are asked to pay an annual membership fee to receive the above benefits. These annual fees can range from $1000.00 to $2000.00 per person, depending on the extent of benefits covered by the annual fee and the number of patients the physician accepts into the practice.
