CONCIERGE MEDICINE PRACTICE
Concierge medicine 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 knowing that the doctor who knows you best will be available when needed. A call to my office, or to my cell phone after hours, can frequently prevent a trip to the emergency room or an urgent care clinic.
Please call my Patient Information Line to learn more about my concierge medical practice that begins October 14, 2019:
Concierge medicine, also known as membership medicine, is a relationship between a patient and a primary care physician in which the patient pays an annual fee or retainer. In exchange for the retainer, doctors provide enhanced care, including a commitment to limit patient enrollment to ensure adequate time and availability for each patient.
The difference is evident from the moment you call the office. During office hours, calls are answered live, with no phone prompts to navigate or buttons to press. If you wake up feeling ill in the morning, for example, you will be scheduled promptly for a visit and there will be little or no waiting time once you arrive.
