A Concierge Physician Offers Custom Care Concierge Physician

Doctors from all corners of the health care system are expressing concerns about care quality. Many point to current conditions, including regional doctor shortages, like the primary care physician shortage affecting Nevada, described in a July 9, 2013, 8 News Now report, and the sharp decrease in per patient time allotment. Increasingly, doctors say they're failing to provide the quality of care their patients deserve because of such factors, and worry about a further decrease in quality when the new health care laws go into effect. A concierge physician works outside of that stressful system, offering custom care to patients.
Custom care isn't about luxury. It's a health care strategy designed to meet a patient's specific health care needs and goals, a plan that promotes long-term health and well-being. In addition to expert diagnosing and treatment of health problems, concierge care has a strong focus on preventing illness by working towards patient specific physical fitness and nutrition goals. A concierge physician offers a style of care that may seem revolutionary to recent generations. However, to older generations, this type of care is very familiar and its return quite welcome.
The house call has come back with the concierge physician. This common sense care option – people don't want or need to go out when sick – harkens back to an era when doctors really knew their patients. They spent time with them, quite different from the almost indistinguishable blur of faces many doctors see in a day as they struggle to provide decent care in mere minutes. We take a more personal approach to care, providing a group of specialists able to offer an overall health care strategy. Nutrition, fitness, disease support, preventative medicine, and mental health care are all a part of our holistic model of care.
When patients see a concierge physician, they see someone with time for questions and discussions. Their doctor cares about their individual health and has an in-depth understanding of their personal health challenges and goals. Health plans and treatment strategies should be made for the individual, something that can be difficult for doctors still working in today's standard medical industry. Many doctors are excited about the concierge care model because it takes them back to the sort of medicine they love – true health care.
At our care center, our doctors are enthusiastic about helping you to achieve your health goals. Amenities include state-of-the-art equipment and technologies, limousine service, and a commitment to offering excellent health education via a highly skilled and responsive staff. Communication and relationship building are essential parts of our health care philosophy, and we look forward to discussing ways to optimize your health.
