Why Concierge Medical Care is the Ultimate Choice for Your Health

Why concierge medical care

How often have you left your doctor’s office frustrated? It took you weeks, even months, just to get an appointment. And when you finally got in to see your doctor, they spent all of 10 minutes with you — and most of that time, they were tapping away on a computer and didn’t even seem to listen to your concerns. You walked away feeling unheard, unseen, and untreated.

You’re not alone. The traditional, insurance-driven medical care system is set up to treat you like an item on a conveyor belt, shoving you forward with no chance to stop and get the actual care you need. The wait time to see a doctor has been increasing steadily for the past 10 years, and there are no signs of that changing.

That’s where concierge medical care comes in. When you visit a private-pay medical office, you enter a world where your needs come first. It’s no wonder that thousands of Americans are opting for the personalized medical services provided through concierge medicine. (And while few concierge medical practices bill your insurance directly, you still have the option to file for reimbursement with your insurance company for any charges they cover.)

Take a look at the difference that concierge medical services can make.

What Is Concierge Medical Care?

Concierge medical care provides a personalized experience that’s long been lost. You pay for the services you receive, receiving insurance reimbursement and coverage where available.

In return, you get individualized care that takes your needs seriously and personally. You enjoy greater time with your physician (and greater attention), and you can make appointments on your own schedule. You have telehealth access to your medical care practitioners as needed, and you don’t have to worry about copays and deductibles.

And you don’t have to worry about whether an insurance company is going to deny you a procedure or treatment you need or want based on automated decisions. You get the care you need, as you need it, when you need it.

The Gaps in the Traditional Health Care System

Modern health care doesn’t give you enough time with your doctor. A physician might have to see as many as 40 patients a day, thanks to pressure from insurance companies. They’re paid based on how many patients they see, so visits can be as short as 10 minutes, even for complex issues. And a given physician might have a patient list of up to 4,000 people (so how can they possibly remember you from one visit to the next?).

In contrast, a doctor working within a concierge practice will see only a fraction of that patient list. They can spend 30 minutes or more with each patient, and the wait to see a doctor is measured in a few days, rather than weeks or months. All that extra time means that doctors can dive deep into understanding patients’ conditions, explain test results thoroughly, and develop treatment plans that are truly individualized.

Not surprisingly, doctors love the concierge model. Instead of spending hours on insurance forms and other administrative trivia, they get to focus on their patients — which is why they went into medicine in the first place. No wonder top doctors are stepping away from the traditional model to deliver their services through concierge care.

The Perks and Benefits of Concierge Medical Care

The benefits of concierge medical care are ample, including easy access to your medical practitioners, quick appointments with short wait times, and deeply personalized care from world-class experts. Let’s take a deeper look.

Strong Relationships Between Patients and Doctors

When you spend time with someone, your relationship becomes strong — and that’s true of your relationship with your doctor in a concierge care setting. Because you have greater access to your doctor and spend more time at each visit, you can develop the bond of trust and understanding that everyone wants with their doctor.

Specialized Care From World-Class Experts

Your doctor’s office should be one place where everybody knows your name. You want your doctor to remember your concerns and your health history, to understand all your options and provide you with targeted, personalized guidance and treatment. And with concierge care, that’s what you get.

At Texas Vitality, our medical professionals are world-class experts who stay up to date in their fields so they can connect you with just the right treatment for what ails you. Because you’re getting the specialized care your body needs, your time in the doctor’s office is spent effectively and productively.

Little to No Wait Time

If you added up the time you spend in doctors’ waiting rooms each year, the number might be very discouraging. Add to that the weeks and months it can take to get a doctor’s appointment in the first place, and it’s clear to see that the traditional health care system isn’t working the way it should. In fact, the average person in the United States waits almost a month to see a family medicine practitioner – And once you start looking at wait times to see a specialist, you can easily find waits as long as 10 months.

That frustration (and the potential threats to your health) disappears with concierge medicine. Say goodbye to watching your health deteriorate while you wait (and wait) for an appointment. Concierge physicians see their patients promptly. That means no more 30 minute waits once you’ve arrived at the practice. We respect your time in every way.

More Time With Your Physician (and More Attention)

Concierge physicians spend two to three times as much time with each patient as traditional primary care physicians do. Think about the last time you visited your primary care doctor. You made an appointment late in the day because it fit in with your schedule — only to find the doctor was running way behind.

That’s because, with only 15 minutes allotted for each patient, one person with significant problems can cause a physician’s whole day to go crazy. And by the time you get seen, maybe the doctor’s now trying to squeeze everyone into, say, 8-minute slots. You don’t get heard, you don’t get the treatment you’ve waited for, and you don’t get the advice you need.

In a concierge medical office, by contrast, your doctor gives you the time you need. They don’t have to keep one eye on the clock, because they aren’t over scheduled. Your examination is thorough, and you can discuss any and all of your concerns amply. Over the long run, you get to build a trusting and healthy long-term relationship with your physician.

How Do People Respond to Concierge Medical Care?

Concierge medical care is relatively new, but early research shows that about 97% of concierge medicine patients appreciate the personal care they receive and believe their doctors are truly concerned about them. In general, one-third more patients are satisfied with their concierge medical care compared to the satisfaction rates of patients pursuing traditional health care options.

Is Concierge Medical Care Right for You?

If you aren’t getting the specialized care you need via your primary care provider or if you need to access world-class experts in your condition, concierge medical care can make a world of difference. Many people without specialized needs turn to concierge medical care simply out of frustration with the old-school, insurance-driven health care system.

Because concierge medical care does such an amazing job of meeting patients’ needs, these practices typically see an incredibly high return rate. They’re clearly doing something right and meeting health care needs that are left by the wayside at most medical practices.
