What is Concierge Medicine?
Quality Not Quantity
Concierge healthcare has many forms and names (“boutique”, “retainer-based”, “VIP” or “membership”) but they all have one thing in common. You become a “member” of a practice and in return you get benefits above what a physician can offer otherwise. Benefits can be 24/7 availability – including email and cellphone, no-rush same day appointments, true wellness and chronic health monitoring, VIP physicals with genetic testing, and so on. The doctor can do this because instead of having to care for on average 2000-4000 patients, they take care of 300-600 patients with time and resources that they couldn’t do otherwise given the realities of independent healthcare.
Paragon Private Health is not just an expert at helping physicians convert their practices, we also help them manage the concierge program to ensure that the level of service is maintained and that patients are getting quality care. We are as discerning in choosing doctors as they are in choosing us. The physicians remain independent and practice care the way it should be done, patients get the better health services they deserve, and Paragon gets to manage the magic that makes it work.
