Concierge Medicine Q & A

What is concierge medicine?

Concierge medicine is a practice in which doctors only see a limited number of patients and spend more time with each of them. In some cases, doctors are available to meet with patients outside of the office to go over health concerns if needed. Doctors who provide concierge medicine typically give patients a way to get in touch with them directly, such as an email account or cell phone number.

What are the advantages of concierge medicine?

Patients gain a number of benefits from using concierge medicine instead of a traditional practice. Concierge medicine gives patients the chance to have longer visits with their doctor. Rather than feeling rushed, patients can take their time discussing health concerns and learning about treatment options. They can also count on receiving a comprehensive physical each year, as well as medical care for any health issues that come up at other times. With concierge medicine, patients don’t have to spend a lot of time waiting for appointments or be forced to sit in crowded waiting rooms. Patients can receive prompt care that fits their schedule.

When should patients consider concierge medicine?

Patients should consider concierge medicine if they have trouble getting appointments during regular hours or if they don’t have a lot of time to spend in waiting rooms. Those who want to ensure they receive comprehensive, high-quality care for health issues rather than rushed care in a traditional practice should also consider concierge medicine.
