Becoming a member of a concierge practice is a decision to take your healthcare into the 21st century. Over the past few decades, science has demonstrated considerable progress in treating illnesses. Technology has brought advances like telemedicine, robotic surgery and electronic medical records have become standard tools for modern practices. Conversely, the antiquated model of office-based practice has not significantly evolved. Concierge medicine has created new modes of delivering healthcare that are considerably more efficient and patient centered. Combining the latest advances in medicine with readily available access to one's physician is the true definition of concierge medicine. In a concierge practice, patients, not insurance companies, are the doctor’s priority. The result is an undeniable higher quality of care. It is inevitable that those who are fortunate enough to have their doctors spend more time with them will translate to a better healthcare experience. Choosing a concierge doctor is a choice for improving one's health.
It is fair to say that there are only a limited number of exceptional physicians in each US city. Thus, the emergence of concierge medicine is a simple case of supply and demand. With the limited supply of first rate medical providers as well as a greater demand from the more knowledgeable healthcare consumer the market for personalized concierge healthcare has grown substantially. And while specialists abound, finding those who can expertly manage a patient's complete healthcare is most difficult. In fact, there has been a constant increase in shortage of primary care doctors in the US over the past 20 years. It is therefore inevitable that the most skilled doctors will move away from the traditional insurance based model of practice, ultimately causing a shift to the concierge model of medicine.
