Healthcare is changing. Too many patients feel like they are being herded through the system with little real interaction with their doctors, and they battle with insurance companies over ever-increasing costs, deductibles, and exclusions. Doctors feel pressure to get people in and out quickly and spend a lot of time trying to wrangle reimbursements from providers. At Four Seasons Medical Concierge, we know that health concierge medicine is a better way to handle your medical care.
Instead of having to make appointments and work around tight schedules, a health concierge is a private practice of physicians in which it’s more like having a doctor on an annual retainer to work with you. This provides a higher level of interaction, greater familiarity, and more flexibility in scheduling appointments.
Health Concierge Medicine: A Closer Relationship
Concierge medicine helps patients and doctors develop closer relationships. Patients want the time to discuss their concerns without feeling rushed, and they want that one-on-one care from professionals who know them well. A health concierge makes that happen.
Health concierge doctors have smaller patient lists so they can spend more quality time with their patients to discuss their health thoroughly. Patients spend more time with the doctor rather than nurses or assistants, and their time with their doctor will be longer than what they get at clinics and busy offices. Because a health concierge practice takes on fewer patients, you will find it’s much easier to get appointments that are convenient for you.
Better Preventative Care
Since your health concierge doctor will spend more time with you, he or she will be more likely to pick up on changes in your health, and regular visits can lead to earlier diagnosis of acute or chronic diseases. Instead of waiting for symptoms to show up, your doctor will help you develop a strategy for a healthier life and how to resolve any issues that may arise.
Experts and Specialists
Finding and getting appointments with specialists can take time, and the most sought-after doctors are often booked months in advance. Four Seasons Medical Concierge helps streamline that process by giving you direct access to experts that specialize in fields such as spinal medicine, pain management, podiatry, and orthopedics.
