About Personal Care Medicine
Personal Care Medicine is often referred to as “Concierge Medicine”, “Boutique Medicine”, “Direct Care Medicine” and “Wellness Care”. Personal Care Medicine is designed to help doctors diagnose and treat patients with understanding and compassion. Government and insurance bureaucracy have lessened the doctor patient relationship. Considering doctor reimbursements are based on diagnosis instead of the time taken to perform the actual diagnosis, physicians are forced to see as many patients in a day as possible. This action has resulted in patients feeling hurried and uncared for while doctors feel as though they are not providing the valuable medical service they once held sacred.
Traditional practitioners attend to a total of 1,000 – 3,000 patients. Personal Care Medicine is membership based and limits the number of participants in order to provide more personalized care. Physicians are able to establish a relationship with their patients, providing improved diagnosis and treatment options. Personal Care physicians are also accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week via phone or email. Appointments are available the same or next day and wait times are significantly reduced.
The services provided vary amongst personal care / concierge medicine providers. The standard services provided are an extensive annual examination, gynecological examinations, wellness visits, minor surgical and cosmetic procedures, coordination of specialists as well as hospital admitting physicians and preventative screenings for cancer, heart disease and diabetes. Additional services are available at most personal care / concierge medicine practices.
