If you’re considering concierge medicine, first consider the context of your current health care situation, like the relationship you have with your physician and the experiences you’ve had during past visits.

Just a Few Questions

To determine if concierge medicine might be right for you, consider the following questions or statements. Ask yourself if they apply to the kind of health care you receive today:
