Frequently Asked Questions
What is concierge medicine?
Concierge medicine is a relatively new approach to the practice of medicine that addresses the most common complaints about medical care in our country lack of access to primary care physicians and inadequate time with the doctor. A concierge practice limits the number of patients in the practice so that the doctor can see each patient in a timely manner, and each patient can have more time with the doctor. Appointments are kept on time and not rushed. In order to allow the practice to limit the number of patients and promote a higher quality of service, the practice charges a flat annual fee. The annual fee covers all office visits and the majority of in-office tests and procedures. That means the doctor does not need to bill any insurance company; nor does the patient need to fill out or submit claim forms to any insurance company. It also means that there are no co-pays or hidden charges for patients to worry about.
