Seven years ago my client told me how pleased she was with the concierge medical practice she and her spouse had joined. She had called her doctor a few days before with a medical need. The nurse answered immediately, and because it was an urgent issue, she was seen that day. The doctor spent 30 minutes with her and called the next day with test results that indicated a need for a specialist referral. The doctor’s staff made the appointment and sent the specialist her records. Just yesterday she told me, “I love our concierge medicine setup.” She said there is an on-call doctor available 24/7, and because for many years my client cared for her severely ill husband, she used this service extensively.
