READER SUBMITTED: Connecticut Docs Enter Tenth Year Of Concierge Medicine

By Thomas O’Connor, MD, Personal Care Associates, LLC

March 27, 2014 Drs. Paul Guardino and Thomas O’Connor, principals of Personal Care Physicians, LLC, both Board Certified Internists, graduates of UConn Medical Residency, and faculty at UConn School of Medicine, describe their unique practice as providing 24/7 physician access, same day appointments, extended office, home and hospital visits as needed, family consults, wraparound coordination with specialists and pharmacies, and nutritional and conditioning consults.

This greatly enhanced level of care is made possible by patient retainer fees which allow the doctors to see approximately 500 patients, in contrast to the 4-5000 doctors typically see. Their patients represent private citizens, business owners and their employees, across Connecticut, internationally and out of state. PCP has become increasingly popular with seniors because these physicians accept Medicare, unlike a growing number of doctors. Concierge practices like PCP have grown from 500 to 5000 in just the last five years.
