Let’s run through a scenario. You’re a benefits broker. Your phone rings. Or maybe it’s an email. It’s your client, perhaps the CEO of a small business or an HR Director at a small to mid-size employer. They want your advice.
Everyone wants a long-term relationship with a primary care doctor who guides them through the multiple stages of life. But there’s one thing that can throw a wrench into that plan – retirement.
As a concierge doctor, people frequently ask about the differences between what I do and what a traditional primary care doctor does.
Pretty much everyone who thinks about switching to concierge medicine has something in common: They’re ready to ditch 7-minute medicine, so they start looking for alternatives to traditional primary care.
So, you haven’t been to the doctor in years. No worries, you aren’t alone. It’s estimated that 25% of people in the United States don’t have a primary care physician and about 20% of people haven’t been to a doctor in more than five years.
Happiness is worth pursuing and it’s also, in some cases, possible to predict. You’re looking at concierge medicine likely because traditional care hasn’t been an ideal experience for you. We think you’re right to look for an option that satisfies you.
Are you close to choosing a concierge medicine practice? If so, you want that decision to go perfectly. And so do we. We’re big proponents of double-checking a practice’s fit and your expectations before you squiggle your signature on the dotted line.
