May 06, 2013 3:32 PM EDT – It is called boutique or concierge medicine. The concept merges the familiar bedside manor of yesteryear with the modern technology of today.
“You have pretty much total access to him 24-7; if you need something you can just call him,” said Tracey Moser, a patient at Dr. Tim Jones’s boutique practice in Charleston, South Carolina.
Moser has been coming to Dr. Tim Jones for more than a decade. In 2009 she stuck with him as he made the transition from a traditional practice to MDVIP, a company that encompasses a nationwide network of boutique-style doctors.
“It’s very much personalized the services,” said Moser. “You can see who you want, when you want.”
