5 Reasons to Switch to a Concierge Medicine Doctor:

Are you searching for a new primary care physician that is available this week and does not rush your appointments? If so, you are not alone. In the U.S., the average wait for a primary care physician appointment is 20 days. Yet, once seen, the waiting room is crowded, your appointment is rushed, then you have a hard time communicating with your doctor after the appointment. Unfortunately, there is a growing shortage of primary care physicians in the United States. Baby boomers are retiring, the overall population is growing, and less doctors are entering primary care.

This is a perfect time to establish care with a primary care physician that provides concierge-style care. Here's why:

1. Appointment availability for acute, chronic, and preventive care

2. Ease of communication with your doctor between appointments

3. Longer patient visits to address your medical needs thoroughly

4. Experienced, knowledgeable physician who knows your medical history

5. Overall lower healthcare costs

How is this achievable? Patient panels sizes in concierge medicine are only 10% to 30% than traditional primary care practices. To support this model, there are regular subscription fees to cover what insurance companies deem "medically unnecessary." These fees typically start at $150 per month. Yikes!

Thankfully, EnVogue Med & Wellness provides the elevated healthcare experience you desire at a fraction of the cost starting at $25 per month. Dr. Sandy Valino Stock, founder, has created a streamlined practice to keep your costs down and provide an efficient patient experience.

As I mentioned before, there is a physician shortage so don't hesitate to establish care! Book your appointment now!
