Concierge cardiologists report high job satisfaction along with more stable practice revenue, but experts caution specialists to learn about the differences in practice models.   

Response to stresses

Concierge medicine has its roots in dissatisfaction. Driven by both physicians and patients who long for more face time and relationship-building than the standard 15-minute appointment supports, concierge practices started popping up in the late-1990s, after a Seattle physician got attention for launching a membership-model practice. Patients paid a monthly fee directly to the physician in exchange for 24/7 access, same-day appointments and no time limits on visits.

For clinicians, the lure hasn’t changed much. Many want to step away from the grind of seeing six patients an hour and the associated fear of making mistakes. Approximately one in five U.S. physicians report intending to reduce their clinical work hours in the next year (Mayo Clin Proc 2017;92[11]:1625-35).
