It’s possible you haven’t yet heard of it, but you will: concierge medicine is the latest developing trend in healthcare. Also known as boutique medicine, concierge medicine is fighting back against a healthcare system that can leave both patients and physicians cold. Concierge medicine works like this: physicians charge an annual fee to each patient in their practice; fees can range from hundreds to tens of thousands of dollars. In exchange, patients get 24-hour access to their physician, including last-minute appointments and answers to medical questions. Plus, patients can expect more personalized visits, with appointments lasting nearly an hour.
