More and more people are turning to concierge medicine. We get asked all the time what that term means so we decided to dedicate this month’s blog to it. Customized, cost-effective, comprehensive care – that’s the definition of concierge medicine.
Concierge medicine, or private medicine, provides patients with comprehensive, individualized and coordinated care under the direct supervision of a world-class, board-certified physician. Concierge physicians attend to an average of 300 patients, unlike primary care physicians (PCPs), who handle an average of between 2,000 and 4,000 patients. This means concierge doctors can devote more time to patients, seeing seven to ten a day and offering 24-hour availability to each and every one of them. PCPs, by contrast, have to see between 30 and 50 patients a day.
