How Does Concierge Care Benefit Patients and Physicians?
A primary care physician’s role as educator, guide and the patient’s best advocate is at risk in today’s medical landscape. Mounting administrative tasks take time once devoted to patient care.
The challenges for patients add up: dealing with impersonal phone systems, long waits for appointments, rushed visits and lack of coordinated care with specialists. Most importantly, there is little time to develop a strong physician-patient relationship that is at the core of the best care. This is not acceptable to me or my patients. I believe concierge medicine provides the best solution.
How is This Practice Different Than A Traditional One?
A concierge practice, with ample time to focus on preventive measures and wellness, has proven to be one of the most effective models for maintaining health.
If you do become ill – and we recognize that health is unpredictable – you will have peace of mind that the doctor who knows you best will be available when needed. A call to my office or cell phone after hours can frequently prevent a trip to the emergency room or an urgent care clinic.
