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, billing issues, and insurance companies. Quality compromised, the concierge approach has emerged as the clear solution. Concierge medicine embodies ideal patient care: longer, more individualized visits in a relaxed setting where each issue is addressed thoroughly and properly, prioritizing the patient above the billing. Payment is replaced with one annual membership fee, eliminating any hassles with all visits throughout the year. The focus is on quality patient care, not billing, insurance rules or unnecessary paperwork.
In a traditional office practice, I have a minimum 3500 of 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. Additionally, I am no longer confined to an office setting; now I can include hospital visits and home emergencies. The key is not only to be your physician, but to form a true physician-patient bond aimed at your health and wellness.
