The Secret Sauce to Concierge Healthcare

Posted by Richard Stamps on Feb 23, 2015

What's the secret sauce to excellent concierge healthcare? Serving the patient with the gift of TIME.

See, in a typical healthcare practice, the goal is to maximize time in order to serve the business, the hospital, the insurance company.

But in concierge healthcare, we use time to serve the patient, which allows our physicians to…

  • Create and monitor an overall wellness plan that keeps you healthy in the long run, instead of focusing attention only when you're ill

  • Spend more time with you during office visits, usually between 30-60 minutes as opposed to 10 or 15 minutes

  • Make house calls when medically necessary or when you're too sick (or contagious) to venture outside

  • Dedicate time on weekends and nights to engage with you when you're unwell or you have questions or concerns—after all, illnesses don't keep a Monday through Friday, 9-5 schedule 

    Below, Dr. Daphne Goldberg discusses how critical this element of time is to each one of her patient's experiences and overall health and wellness.
