Why You Should Consider Concierge Medicine - Image
October 9, 2022

Did you know Americans typically wait 24 days to see a new doctor? But the frustration doesn’t stop there. Instead, most people spend more time in the waiting room than they do with their new provider. Why? Because the average traditional primary care physician can have up to 4,000 patients and see up to 40 people a day.

But there is another option: concierge medicine. Concierge medicine gives you access to stress-free, personalized health care, including quality time with your doctor.

Our team proudly provides concierge medicine services at Scottsdale Private Physicians, LLC. If you’re tired of the stress and frustration that come with traditional health care, here are a few reasons to consider switching to a concierge care program.

What sets concierge medicine apart

Have you ever felt like you loved your doctor but hated their office? That’s a common complaint with traditional primary care.

With high patient loads, doctors can usually spend no more than 15 minutes at a time with each person. On top of that, it can take weeks to get an appointment and hear results of basic tests and screenings — and you may not get to discuss them with your doctor.

Concierge medicine takes an entirely different approach that focuses on the patient experience. This model aims to limit patient loads, so most concierge care providers typically have rosters that don’t exceed 600 people. This means the provider can see 6-10 people a day and spend at least 30 minutes with each one.

What makes this approach possible is a flat monthly or annual fee. This membership-based model gives you access to a selection of specialized services and custom features designed to save you time and make your health care experience as positive and stress-free as possible.

The benefits of concierge medicine

The most obvious benefit of concierge medicine involves more quality time with your doctor. But the advantages don’t stop there. When signing up for concierge care services at Scottsdale Private Physicians, LLC, you can usually expect:

  • Same-day appointments, including virtual consultations
  • Visits that last an average of 30-45 minutes
  • Direct access to your provider
  • No copays or deductibles for office visits
  • Convenient and streamlined communication, from scheduling and refills to billing and insurance

Plus, having a more in-depth appointment with your provider means they gain a better understanding of your health, lifestyle, and unique needs. As a result, they can better tailor your preventive care to help you enjoy optimal health.
