What Is Concierge Medicine
With today’s fast-paced lifestyle, from fast food to instant messaging, and a whole world of rapid means of communication and sharing, we have grown use to things moving much more quickly than they used to. But do we really want such speed when it comes to sitting down with our doctor? Same day appointment – yes. Quick and efficient to get in to see the doctor – yes. But quality time with our doctor – maybe not so fast.
With pressures from insurance companies and high demand to see more and more patients in a day, most doctors have been forced into spending as little as 10 minutes with a patient. They do a quick assessment and often prescribe some medications. Some patients come in, prepared with their list of ailments and issues, to try and speed talk with their doctor in hopes of covering more ground, but can end up walking away with half or more of their issues unaddressed.
Wouldn’t it be nice to not be rushed during that precious time with your doctor? To have plenty of time to elaborate on the details of your symptoms and concerns? Wouldn’t it be nice to have a doctor who not only listened, but who then looked for the underlying causes of your symptoms, ordered the right labs or tests to be done, who then sat down with you to explain what is going on and then laid out a treatment plan that would bring you back to a healthy state?
While this kind of service is not too common, Concierge Medicine allows for exactly that – quality time with a doctor who listens and cares. Concierge Medicine is becoming more and more popular because this kind of care and attention is what a lot of people truly need. And while you may pay a bit more for this level of service, what’s it worth for you to feel good, to have enough energy and to be physically able to do the things you want to do? Optimizing your health for wellness and prevention of disease can also save you a lot in the longer run.
It is for these reasons that Dr Casad offers Concierge Medical Services to a limited-size group of patients, so that she can spend the time that each patient needs to truly achieve health, mobility and the activity level they desire.
