While primary care and family medicine account for most concierge practices, subspecialty interest in concierge medicine continues to grow as reimbursements shrink for cardiologists, endocrinologists, pulmonologists, pediatricians and obstetricians/gynecologists. Learn why three of our “Special Docs” feel concierge medicine is an ideal fit for their practice.
Since transitioning to concierge medicine, cardiologist John Levinson, MD, believes the model has vastly improved his ability to provide preventive care to his patients.
Endocrinology, with its focus on complex metabolic issues, also fits well within the concierge medicine model. As David A. Chappell, MD, expressed:
“Personalized medicine provides the best opportunity to combine my expertise in endocrinology with internal medicine and primary care. My practice gives me more time to think outside the box and care for patients without onerous financial disincentives.”
After transitioning to concierge medicine, board-certified internist Uday Jani, MD, has more time to discuss preventative care with his patients, particularly important in his practice which is focused on integrative and functional medicine.
