A concierge medical practice serves only several hundred patients vs. the thousands served in a traditional medical practice. The benefit of serving a small population is more time devoted to each individual patient. As a result, the care is more individually focused, and there is greater availability of appointments with shorter wait times and 24/7 access to your primary care provider.

Concierge medicine is designed for individuals + families who want a more personalized doctor-patient experience. If you want longer visit times with a high-quality primary care provider who is invested in your health and well-being, concierge medicine is for you.
