Is Concierge Medicine Eclipsing Traditional Healthcare?

Forbes | November 27, 2017

With the traditional healthcare system in the United States broken and becoming increasingly outdated, what will take its place? Concierge medicine, a healthcare model that provides patients with comprehensive wellness exams and customized wellness plans. Jeffrey Friedman, MD, Director of Medicine at Community Health Associates and an MDVIP-affiliated physician, agrees saying, “In addition to being able to deliver comprehensive diagnostic and treatment capabilities, we [as concierge medical professionals are] able to be very proactive and work with [our patients], so they can live long and healthy lives.” Not only do physicians have time to thoroughly understand their patients’ medical histories with concierge medicine, it is also a more personalized alternative to the “7-minute medicine” provided by primary care practices.
