Patient
Benefits

We believe the doctor's office should be one of the most irresistible and pleasant places to visit in any community. This vision is delivered and deployed each day by a number of concierge-style medical physicians across the country.

According to the Center for Studying Health System Change’s Community Tracking Study In August 2008,
76.3% of Primary Care Physicians Surveyed DID NOT STRONGLY AGREE
that they had adequate time to spend with their patient(s) during a typical office visit.

As a Patient of a concierge / retainer based physician, you can expect to receive:

  • Virtually Unlimited Access And More Time With Your Doctor…Each environment allows your physician to manage and monitor more carefully your health and wellness activities.
  • No waiting…concierge medicine environments offer no wait, same-day appointments.
  • Better Dialogue With Your Doctor…each question you have and the best course of treatment can be discussed a length to ensure you ask and receive answers to all of your questions or concerns.
  • Freedom…from worry about whether or not you can access your physician in a timely manner.
  • Focus…on preventive medicine and virtually unlimited office visits.
  • Make Healthier Choices…and adapt healthier behavior patterns by having your physician available to you anytime day or night.
  • Be More Organized and Efficient…Whether you're on vacation or in another country, your physician is just a phone call away.

Concierge Medicine is a brand new form of medicine in which doctors provide patients with a private cell phone number, same-day appointments, visits that last as long as it takes to address your needs and varying other amenities. An concierge-style doctor becomes your singular source for all things medical. Essentially, your very own physician becomes a trusted friend, advocate and is fully prepared to help you navigate the complex healthcare system. In the event of emergencies, hospital care is closely monitored, and specialists are personally briefed and debriefed by your physician.

 

In exchange for this enhanced access and personal attention, your doctor will receive a retainer fee which enables them to increase the amount of time they spend with you each year, no matter if you’re calling with the flu or on your way to the hospital because of a serious car accident.

 

Services you may receive may include guaranteed same-day or next-day appointments, no waiting time at office visits, in-depth medical evaluations, customized health care and lifestyle plans, around-the-clock access to your physicians’ cell phones, pager, and e-mail, coordination of care with specialists, and even housecalls.
