Are you tired of having to wait months to get an appointment with your primary care provider? Do you wish your provider spent more time talking with you instead of writing prescriptions and giving you handouts?
You’re not alone. That’s why so many people are looking for alternatives like concierge medical care.
At East Side Primary Medical Care on New York City’s Upper East Side, our compassionate primary care physician, Dr. Daniel Klein, specializes in preventative healthcare and always puts patient health above all else. That’s why we offer concierge primary care.
In this month’s blog post, we want to tell you what benefits you get with our concierge medical care program.
About concierge medical care
Concierge medical care is a health care business model in which you pay your provider directly instead of going through your health insurance. With the traditional health insurance business model, providers need to carry a heavy caseload in order to cover costs. That’s why it takes so long to get an appointment and your provider has so little time to talk to you about your health.
Our concierge medical care program has a limited number of patients. We do this so we can provide the personalized attention and care patients expect when they go see their doctor.
What’s included with concierge medical care
We are a primary care practice. That means we manage all of your health needs, from wellness to disease and everything in between.
With our concierge medical care program, you get:
- A comprehensive annual exam
- Unhurried visits with the doctor
- Same-day or next-day appointments
- Access to the doctor after hours and on weekends
- A dedicated phone number to our concierge coordinator
- Ability to retrieve electronic medical records
- Access to a national network of physicians when you’re traveling
We consider the comprehensive annual exam to be the most important part of our program. This exam is a thorough evaluation of your current health and your risk of future problems. We use the information we gather during this exam to develop your personalized wellness plan, which serves as the foundation of what we focus on throughout the year.
Benefits of concierge medical care
We consider concierge medical care an investment in your health. In addition to more personalized attention and care, our program focuses on wellness rather than sickness. We give you the time and attention you need to make the lifestyle changes that really matter.
Creating healthy habits may prevent the development of a chronic disease and the complications that come with it. Our program also helps those struggling to manage a chronic disease like diabetes or high blood pressure.
Your health is important to us. If you’re looking for a primary care provider who puts your well-being first, give us a call or book an appointment online.
