The concierge medicine approach to health care is one that has been around for a while, but has grown in demand in recent years. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic further raised demand for and utilization of concierge medical services.
Concierge medicine is a highly personalized, convenient approach to health care that goes above and beyond traditional medical services. It incorporates multiple aspects of your well-being, making it the perfect choice for those who want the best possible care.
Our providers here at Executive Medicine of Texas are proud to bring concierge medicine to the Southlake, Texas, community.
Keep reading to learn five essential benefits of switching to concierge medicine.
1. Quick access to care
Concierge medicine is the perfect way to get the care you need without the hassle of scheduling weeks ahead of time. Trying to coordinate your schedule to book an appointment four weeks into the future can be difficult, but with concierge medicine, you can expect efficient care that fits into your schedule.
Concierge medicine not only makes it easier to schedule appointments, but it also enables you to receive care when you need it most.
For example, if you feel sinus pressure building, you can talk with your provider on the phone about your concerns, without the need for an in-person visit.
If you need to come in for treatment or an exam, you can count on seeing your provider within a day or two. You don't have to waste time in a packed waiting room.
2. No rushed visits
Rather than spending an hour waiting in a doctor's office, only to be limited to a 15-minute appointment, you can take all the time you need to discuss your concerns with us. Because concierge providers see fewer patients, we have more time to care for you.
3. On-demand connectivity
No more waiting on hold for an extended time or trying to catch someone's attention during limited office hours.
Communicate with your provider easily and conveniently by calling the office and using the portal. Executive Medicine of Texas concierge members also have the physician’s personal cell phone to use in the case of after hours emergencies.
