What is the difference between Primary Care and Concierge Medicine?
Primary care doctors are typically family or internal medicine physicians. It can take an average of 2 weeks to see a doctor, including 40 minutes waiting in the lobby and 20 minutes waiting in an exam room—for an average of 7 minutes spent actually speaking with your physician.
In exchange for a membership, concierge medicine means your doctor sees fewer patients, resulting in more personal, prevention-focused care for the patient.
Isn’t concierge medicine only for rich people?
Concierge medicine is for anyone who demands a higher level of health care. Everyone deserves the proper amount of attention during appointments, security, and trust in primary care physicians no matter their income.
Can you draw labs?
Yes, we do in-office lab work.
What if I have an emergency?
Depending on the emergency, we highly suggest calling 911 immediately. After you call 911, contact your provider to coordinate your care. Patients are asked to contact their provider before going to an urgent care facility at any time of day. Your provider will address critical after-hours problems directly.
What if I need to see a specialist or surgeon?
Our team will help refer and coordinate you with any specialists to see and will coordinate with them so the best arrangements can be made, and your applicable medical information will be sent in advance of your visit.
Can I be reimbursed through my Health Savings Account (HSA), Flex Spending Account (FSA) or other insurance providers?
Please confirm eligibility with your individual plans if you wish to be reimbursed for your membership. Elite MD, LLC does not guarantee coverage and/or reimbursement for services rendered.
