Although concierge medicine is not new, only recently has the service been made available to people in many different regions of the U.S.
If you’re tired of being treated like a number instead of a person at your doctor’s office, then concierge medicine may be what you’ve been looking for.
With concierge medicine, you get the full attention of your doctor, who spends enough time with you to establish a personal relationship and to answer all your questions. Compare this to traditional insurance-based practice, where the doctor spends only 5 minutes with you in order to rush to the patient in the next room.
Concierge medicine is one of the newest health care delivery models available – and its popularity is growing.
Role of a Concierge Doctor
Concierge physicians see far fewer patients so they can spend far more time with each patient, thereby creating a much closer bond than one gets with a basic in-network doctor.
Concierge doctors can even arrange treatment for when patients travel or are on the road. The entire premise of a concierge doctor is to provide personalized, timely, and convenient treatment.
Because your concierge doctor is interested in serving your health care needs over the long term, you can expect a lot of time to be spent on preventive measures to help you avoid medical problems down the road.
When your doctor knows you, you can expect recommendations for certain vaccines, tests, or procedures based on what’s going on in your life. In this way, patients get far better preventive care from a concierge doctor than they would in the traditional health care model.
