WHAT IS CONCIERGE Primary Care?
Concierge medicine, also known as membership medicine, personalized healthcare, or retainer-based medicine, is a unique healthcare model that offers a higher level of personalized attention and access to a primary care physician, and all of their resources. It’s an increasingly popular option for individuals seeking comprehensive and customized care.
One of the key differences between concierge medicine and traditional medicine is the enhanced access to healthcare providers. In a concierge practice, patients typically enjoy longer appointment times, same-day or next-day appointments, and the ability to communicate directly with their healthcare providers via phone or email.
Another distinguishing feature of concierge medicine is its focus on preventive care. By emphasizing the importance of maintaining good health and detecting potential issues early, concierge practices aim to prevent illness and promote overall well-being. Patients can expect individualized care, comprehensive annual physicals, and a proactive approach to managing their health.
