Concierge Medicine: Just the Ticket for Many Patients and Doctors
Concierge medicine offers more than quicker access to care, explains Dr Klemes. “Our doctors have smaller patient panels. Patients can develop a deeper relationship with physicians. There can be a much greater emphasis on prevention and wellness – not just acute care. Physicians can get to know their patients better, and spend more time with each patient.” One often heard criticism of concierge medicine is that it further drains the pool of dwindling primary care talent by pulling internal medicine and family medicine physicians away from more traditional primary care practices. According to Dr Klemes, this view is misguided.
