My mission as a physician over the last 20 years has been to provide quality care by never rushing through issues, and by truly listening to my patients. Recently there has been increased pressure on traditional practices to see more patients in less time thus making my approach to medicine very difficult. In an effort to correct this I have decided to shift from a traditional practice to a concierge practice. As a result, I will be able to take my time with patients, make myself more available, oversee hospitalizations in person daily, make house calls if needed, and to work with you to improve your wellness with our team approach. It all starts with you making that first step.
To better explain why I chose concierge medicine, please read my article, The Concierge Revolution, as published in the November issue of Old Naples News.
Modern day medicine fixates on physicians rushing through as many appointment visits as possible, putting courtesy and quality care aside. With insurance companies’ seemingly endless restrictions and complexity, the majority of each physician’s day is dedicated to dealing with paperwork.
In a traditional office practice, I have a minimum of 3500 patients. However, in this setting, I limit my patient volume to around 300 patients. Limiting my overall patient volume frees me to dedicate more time to each patient’s individual appointment or concerns.
The only time that you will need your insurance will be to go to the lab, imaging or to see your specialists.
