Concierge Medicine, the Doctor is always in

The Doctor is Always in
Concierge medicine takes the doctor/patient relationship back to the good ol’ days

You have a sore throat, a fever and feel achy all over. You pick up the phone, call your doctor’s personal cell phone and ask him if he can see you now. He says, “Absolutely, why don’t you come in right now?”  If you think physician service like this went out with poodle skirts and bobby socks, think again.  It’s called Concierge Medicine and it’s available right now for patients in the Stone Oak Area.

Grey Canyon Family Medicine is one of only about 300 practices in the U.S. making the commitment to deliver the type of personalized quality care that is virtually nonexistent in the traditional medical setting. Thanks to today’s fast-paced world of managed care, physicians have been forced to run their practices by the numbers – see as many patients as possible each day. But don’t be too hard on the doctors. They are literally being forced to spend less time with their patients and overbook their calendars because of shrinking payments from Medicare, Medicaid and commercial insurance providers.
