The Doctor Will See Only You Now

November 23, 2011

If you have ever waited days or weeks to see the doctor, concierge medicine sounds appealing: For an additional fee, patients have same-day appointments and 24-hour access, more face time with the doctor and extra preventative care, according to Knowledge@Wharton.

Doctors who offer concierge medicine say the practice frees them from the constraints imposed by insurers and allows them time to give patients the individualized attention they need. Skeptics say concierge medicine promotes a two-tiered system, improving health care for a few but worsening it for almost everyone else.

What do you think about concierge medicine? Have you had any success with it? How long have you had it? What have been the positives to your practice? Any negatives?
