“Encore Careers And The Concierge Doctor”
“Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.” ~Proverbs 13:12 NIV

APRIL 3, 2015 – It’s no secret that many people, including physicians, view their work as a penalty box which they begrudgingly enter every Monday morning. Chain restaurants and country songs have been popular for decades because of it.
In the words of one of my favorite authors, Jon Acuff, ‘What if you could rescue your Monday’s?’
The “business” of Concierge Medicine and its demographically diverse and widely successful companion direct primary care, isn’t about doctors quitting something. It’s not even about starting something. Those physicians who have travelled down the often bumpy road before you and now offer transparent solutions to patients will tell you that entering into these categories of healthcare is about … ‘intentionally building an “Encore Career” using your skills; your character; relationships and a lot of Hustle.’
An Encore Career is full of hope, hard work and is in essence, work in the second half of your life that combines continued income, greater personal meaning, and social impact.
