The Solution to the Problem
“Managed” Health Care, Online Medicine
Insurance companies and government agencies have managed to insert themselves between doctor and patient. Throw in fear surrounding medical care today, and we end up as we are today, with increasing anxiety, frustration, and an emphasis on reactive (instead of proactive) care. Many well-loved, well-established family physicians have become so disenchanted with this system that they’ve been pressured to retire in the prime of their careers.
With such a flawed system, it’s no wonder why it’s often impossible to speak directly with the doctor, why it’s difficult to schedule an appointment, and why so many online alternatives have manifested. Remote visits with a provider can never replace in-person visits with your doctor. Each online medical consultation is a missed opportunity to diagnose something unrelated the issue at hand. With no ongoing familiarity or continuity and no physical exam, proactive care takes a back seat, to the detriment of the patient.
Concierge Family Medicine- A “Retainer” Medical Practice
At Concierge Family Medicine (CFM) we are employed directly by our patients, so we are able focus all of our energy on them. Our small group of doctors and staff are committed to providing each patient with a proactive, overwhelmingly positive health care experience. In addition to urgent issues, we concentrate on early identification of potential health risks, aggressive management of those risks, wellness planning, and patient education.
Our unique approach at CFM makes it possible for us to provide the highest-quality, individualized patient care:
- A single annual fee guarantees our patients immediate access to excellent care as often as they wish throughout the year.
- We offer comprehensive, personalized, in-person medical care. We do not market any “sideline services” such as aesthetic procedures, alternative therapies, or dubious supplements.
- Our patients know that there will be no additional charges, so they are more likely to utilize the services available. Our patients:
- return faithfully for recommended followup visits, routine labs, etc
- come in annually for a thorough physical exam
- do not hesitate to call us 24/7 if they have an urgent question
- Our small practice guarantees patients the VIP attention they deserve.
