Concierge medicine is really a new term for what Naturopathic medicine has been practicing for centuries. It’s based on the premise that each patient is unique and needs to be treated well…… uniquely.
With the advent of current “evidenced based” medicine and cost-effectiveness as the key principles, we are quickly moving in the opposite direction. Remember that the moniker “evidenced based” is only as good and objective as those individuals and groups making the claim, and using their data.
Concierge medicine has two flavors. There is the pay as you go or the subscription model. The pay as you go is a set fee, typically based on time, whereas the subscription model has you pay a monthly or yearly fee, for a set amount of access to a physician. Each model has its strengths and weaknesses. We are currently using the pay as you go model. This afford you the opportunity to make your own calculated use of medicine as it fits your need and desires.
