Thursday, April 13, 2017 at 8:35 a.m. – You might have seen concierge doctors depicted on television shows such as Royal Pains and Rush. The same thing happens in every episode: A rich or famous person needs medical assistance, but if they go to a doctor or hospital, the press will find out. So, they summon their private physician, who just happens to be driving around with a hospital’s worth of medical equipment in the trunk of his or her car. The doc performs life-saving surgery in the privacy of someone’s living room. But in reality, concierge doctors aren’t on call for life-or-death emergencies and they don’t only serve the rich and famous.
