What is concierge medical care?
Concierge medical care provides patients with individualized care options and enhanced connectivity to care for a retainer. The goal is to give patients a direct connection to their medical provider and more personalized care than a standard medical practice can offer.
Most people can relate to the frustration of waiting weeks or even months for a medical appointment. When you see your provider at a standard medical practice, many people feel that time restrictions cause their appointment to feel rushed, and they may not receive the individualized care they need.
Concierge medicine puts the power back in the patient's hands and offers the opportunity to receive highly individualized, on-demand health care on your own terms.
Physicians at standard medical practices often see a lot of patients. The average primary care doctor has about 2300 patients under their care. This places a limitation on the attention and care they can provide to each patient.
Concierge medicine provides patient-centered care with an emphasis on forming a strong relationship between doctor and patient. Concierge medical practices are smaller and see fewer patients. This means that each patient receives high-quality care and the time and attention needed to maintain optimal health. With this unparalleled access to your provider you can take your health care to the next level.
