5 Benefits of Switching to a Concierge Medicine Practice

Maybe you’re tired of waiting weeks or months for your next doctor’s appointment. Or perhaps you hate the rushed atmosphere at the doctor’s office, where it feels like you’re just another appointment on a very long list.

Traditional health care can be frustrating, and it’s not always easy to get the care you need when you need it. Concierge medicine practices take a different approach.

Helene Wechsler, MD, Scott L. Bernstein, MD, and our team at Scottsdale Private Physicians, LLC provide top-tier concierge medicine for our patients. With a monthly or annual upfront fee, you have easy access to your doctor, longer appointment times, and a team that cares about your health needs.

Are you curious about concierge medicine? This unique model of health care is growing in popularity, and it’s a trend that’s here to stay. Here are five of the best benefits you can expect when you make the switch.

1. Dedicated time with your doctor

One of the biggest benefits of concierge medicine is that our team manages our appointment schedule so each patient has plenty of one-on-one time with your doctor. Concierge appointments are never rushed.

When you choose concierge medicine, you can expect your appointments to be longer and more available. Concierge doctors spend an average of 30-45 minutes with their patients at each appointment compared to eight minutes in a traditional medical practice.

These longer appointments give your doctor the chance to better understand you. You and your doctor have the time to build a trusting professional relationship that results in comprehensive health care for you.

2. Personalized health care management

More in-depth appointments mean your doctor can get to know your health, your lifestyle, and your unique needs. More available appointments allow your doctor the opportunity to detect medical issues as early as possible.

Along with early identification, preventive medicine tailored to your needs can help you enjoy your best possible health. If you have an existing condition, our team integrates chronic disease management into your health care plan. 

3. Easy access to your health care team

Concierge practices have a smaller patient base than traditional offices, which means our team isn’t stretched thin. We offer longer appointments for our concierge patients, but we strive to make your doctor accessible even without a scheduled appointment.

Your doctor maintains a balanced schedule so you can talk to them when you need to. In many cases, same-day appointments are available for our concierge patients. We also offer virtual consultations, so you don’t have to go through the hassle of scheduling an appointment if you just have a quick question.

4. Comprehensive in-house care

Your concierge doctor helps you navigate preventive care, chronic condition management, and many other types of medical care. To make it as easy as possible, we offer a host of in-house services so you don’t have to travel somewhere else for care. 

We offer routine physical exams and Executive physicals for:

Our specialty services include:

We also provide weight loss programs, lifestyle coaching, and stress management to help you live your best life.

5. A team to coordinate your care

Scheduling doctor’s appointments, communicating with your insurance company, and coordinating specialist visits can quickly become a huge headache. Concierge medicine can lift that stress from your shoulders.

Our doctors, nurses, and staff are here for you. As part of our concierge model of care, we streamline health care coordination, from setting appointments and refilling prescriptions to handling billing and insurance.

Personalized concierge medicine eliminates the hassle of traditional medical care. Find out more about concierge services at Scottsdale Private Physicians with a consultation today. You can call to schedule a visit or contact our team online.
