Concierge Medicine Q & A

What is concierge medicine?

Concierge medicine is an arrangement between a doctor and patient in which the patient pays an annual fee for the doctor’s medical services. The annual fee, or retainer, typically includes a variety of primary care services.

With concierge medicine, patients get more time with the doctor and more personalized office visits. Patients aren’t rushed in and out of the clinic, which helps cultivate a relationship of trust.

Concierge medical plans vary. If you have health insurance, you should understand what it covers and what your concierge plan covers. Some health insurance plans can support concierge medicine and cover additional testing or diagnostic services. 

How is concierge medicine different from traditional care?

Concierge medicine gives patients enhanced, personalized care. With concierge medicine, you’re guaranteed adequate time and availability for appointments. Genesis Functional Medicine accepts a limited number of concierge patients to ensure a high standard of care.

You can expect to build a long-term relationship with the team at Genesis Functional Medicine. Appointments are longer, giving you ample time to get your questions answered and explore all your treatment options. 

In many cases, the relationships developed through concierge medicine allow the doctor to provide elevated care and recommend more comprehensive preventive screenings. Highly personalized care plans, coupled with preventive testing, can give you the best possible health long-term.
