Concierge medicine is an area of medical care that has become popular in recent years. It involves breaking down the barriers between doctors and patients. Have you ever stood in line at a pharmacy just to be told that the pharmacist cannot help you because he or she cannot get your doctor on the phone? Or maybe you need a medication from the pharmacist and you find out it requires a prescription.
In a traditional “big box” doctor’s office, you must make an appointment with your doctor during office hours. You must drive to the office, sign in with the office staff and sit and wait. In some busy doctor’s offices, the wait can be quite long. Sometimes, you don’t get to see your own doctor. Some medical practices employ more than one doctor and other health care providers who are like doctors but may be more limited. All of this stressful and time consuming activity is just to get to the point that you can get back in line at the pharmacy to get what you need.
If you do not want to suffer with the frustrating and time wasting activity of going to see a doctor, you may be very interested in concierge medicine, also referred to as VIP medicine.
