MARCH 1, 2017 – Countless interviews over the years with successful Concierge Medicine Physicians inform us that for one to succeed in Concierge Care, you must understand that your audience is overwhelmed. Reaching an overwhelmed audience isn’t great for doctors. Between insurance headaches, EOBs, prescription renewals, etc., the patient of today yearns for simplicity because they are overwhelmed by marketing and noise.
