FARMINGTON, CT (WFSB) –Concierge medicine is becoming more popular with people who want 24/7 access to their doctor.
Like so many people these days, J.R. Clisham is super busy. He owns a self-storage facility business, he’s always on the go and he didn’t have a lot of time to sit in a waiting room.
“I can see my doctor right away. There’s no waiting here. You come in and you have an appointment,” Clisham said. “That’s the appointment. You don’t show up and wait in the waiting room with a bunch of other people.”
Clisham said he now has a concierge doctor, and he’s guaranteed to be seen.
Doctors Paul Guardino and Thomas O’Connor own personal care physicians in Farmington.
“What people are really getting is accessibility when they need a physician,” O’Connor said.
“Whenever you need to talk to your doctor, you talk to your doctor, not to a nurse practitioner or something other than your doctor,” Clisham said.
