Pediatric Concierge Medicine

When it comes to their children, every parent knows the value of having a dedicated and experienced pediatrician. Unfortunately, many physicians are overwhelmed with patients and simply cannot provide the level of care they would like. In addition, there are often strict insurance parameters that must be fulfilled to maintain coverage.

As the world of healthcare changes around us, the popularity of concierge pediatric medicine continues to grow. This emerging style of healthcare allows pediatricians to focus their attention on exceptional service, freeing themselves from the shackles of traditional, insurance-based systems.

Why Pediatricians Are Choosing Pediatric Concierge Medicine

As the world of medicine evolves, more pediatricians are switching to concierge pediatrics. Although every practice differs and may even specialize in a certain field of medicine, all pediatricians appreciate the autonomy, work-life balance, and effective patient outcomes that concierge care provides. Some of the main advantages that a membership-based model offers for physicians and patients include:

  • Enhanced Personal Care: With concierge medicine, physicians have more time with patients, know them (and their symptoms) better, and can more effectively treat children. Concierge pediatric medicine is especially crucial to treat children with chronic conditions, as these patients would typically be outsourced to specialists in the first place.
  • Availability and Convenience: Typically, concierge physicians offer same-day appointments and 24/7 access to your doctor. Many doctors are even offering online and in-home appointments to provide greater convenience to patients.
  • Preventative Care: Another benefit of the concierge boutique pediatrics model is that doctors have the time and energy to focus on preventive care. This means a greater emphasis on promoting healthier lifestyles and identifying potential issues that could lead to more-serious ailments in the future. Parents can feel secure that their pediatrician is looking out for their children’s long-term health and wellness.
  • Advanced Methodologies: The fact that concierge pediatricians have the time to slow down and concentrate on their patients also means they often provide more advanced care than their traditional counterparts. They can devote more of their time to keeping up with the latest advancements in their field and therefore offer better treatments.
  • Holistic Care: Children who have complex medical needs often require the help of one or more specialists. Working with a concierge pediatrician makes this process much smoother because the primary care provider has more time and attention to spend working with these specialists. This means children who need specialized treatments will experience a more holistic approach to their care as well as better overall results.
