What are the Benefits of Concierge Medicine and What does it Cover?

Concierge Medicine offers a more intimate doctor-patient relationship through a more personal and individual relationship with your doctor.

Most medical practices that offer medical concierge services will include:

  • 24/7 triage and coordination of care for emergencies and medical emergencies
  • Same day/next day appointments
  • Complete physicals and medical exams performed in one location and in a manageable time frame
  • Compilation of all tests, treatments, and medical records.
  • Identification and scheduling with top physicians and specialists capable of diagnosing and treating particular conditions
  • Investigations and personalized medical reports related to particular diseases, symptoms, concerns, diagnoses, and treatment options
  • Coordination and access to healthcare while traveling in the US or out of the country

With 20 patients or less in a day and appointment times lasting between 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the patient’s needs, concierge physicians can devote more time and energy to each patient.

Beyond that, many physicians feel they can provide higher quality care than they could in a fee-for-service practice, where they could be scheduled to see up to 30 patients in one day.

Without the performance pressures, scheduling, and administrative burdens of traditional primary care practice, concierge medicine doctors report that they are more satisfied with their work and therefore better able to provide the best possible care for their patients.
