INSIGHTS & ANALYSIS: Number of Concierge Medicine Doctors

Numbers

Source: Concierge Medicine Today; July 2017

“Industry sources from within Concierge Medicine confirm there are probably around 5,000 to 20,000 private medicine physicians[1] nationally according to the independent industry trade publication, Concierge Medicine Today. However, since there is no federal registry or official national database of these physicians, it is difficult to accurately estimate a precise number. These figures still only represent a minute percentage of the roughly 923,308 total licensed physicians in the U.S.,[2] that actively practice medicine today. Industry experts and observers tell Concierge Medicine Today that growth in the provision of subscription private medicine services has been primarily in internal medicine and family medicine, although specialty physician participation is on the rise. Concierge Medicine Today also cautions that there is no way that Internet searches and polling on the Internet can or will result in an accurate head count of these subscription-based business model physicians. Therefore, it is left up to industry examiners, physicians and thought leaders in the space, to accurately estimate and educate others about the history and future of this private medical space.”
