One of our speakers Michael Golden, MD, from Beverly, Massachusetts found that spending time with his patients was the most important factor in his transition. “I’ve always liked to take time with patients despite the myriad of forces that the insurance market and health care throws at us. As it became harder and harder to preserve the time together with my patients, I finally decided there had to be a better way. We just want to see patients, solve problems, care for them, be there when they need us, and not be emotionally bankrupt at the end of the day so that we can be available to our families.”
Rebecca Perlow, DO, an OB-GYN from Tarzana, California wanted to preserve the independence of her practice. Rather than being beholden to a big hospital or large health care entity, she wanted to practice medicine without anyone telling her how to care for her patients. She goes on to say, “I don’t want to work for other people that tell me I can only do a certain amount of things with patients. To bring your best self to medicine is the best gift you could ever be given. We all love this job. This is not a job for us, it’s a passion. Specialdocs allows us to do that. It guides us along the way.”
Amy Loden, MD, FACP is a doctor from St. Louis, Missouri and a mother of four. She was having a hard time maintaining her work-life balance, always finding herself working into the late evening and having no time to spend with her family. “It became apparent to me when my eight year old daughter said, ‘Mama, why do love your work more than us?’ That’s not the mom I wanted to be, that’s not the mother I am.” Dr. Loden then reached out to 3 different companies and found Specialdocs to be the best fit for her. With fewer patients to care for, she can now find the time to be with her family.
If you find yourself wanting to spend more time with your patients and family while not being beholden to a large hospital, then consider taking the next step towards a concierge medicine practice. CEO of Specialdocs Terry Bauer finishes Part 1 of this series by saying, “I am very privileged in having terrific relationships with our clients, but I’m also very privileged in having a great staff. We have a great group of people that work with our clients everyday doing everything they can to help them be successful and reach their dream practice.”
Specialdocs knows how to help physicians and their patients understand the transition to a concierge practice, enabling physicians to make the transition as smoothly as possible. Watch Part 1 of this series and see how three current concierge physicians changed for the better with Specialdocs.
