CONCIERGE PRIMARY CARE
What is Concierge Primary Care?
The typical primary care physician today carries a patient load of 2,500-3,000 patients, seeing 25-30 patients per day. On average, primary care physicians spend only 10.7 minutes with each patient during a typical office visit. This often leaves the patient feeling rushed and unsure their concerns have been fully addressed.
Concierge medicine is a reaction to assembly line health care. The concierge model of care focuses on providing exceptional care and convenience to fewer patients giving you the time and attention you deserve, and includes services not provided under medical insurance plans.
Typically patients pay a monthly concierge fee (much like a retainer) which allows the practice to remain financially stable while offering extraordinary care, comfort and convenience to the patient; such as extended office visits, more direct access to your physician, and medical updates. At Eastside Premier Medicine your insurance is billed for medical services such as office visits and procedures.
