Concierge Medicine Q & A
What is concierge medicine?
There is a problem in American medicine, including a significant shortage of primary care providers available to meet the needs of individual patients. That leaves people feeling rushed in and out of their doctor’s office, often with only a few minutes of actual face time with their provider.
Central Jersey Family Physicians has chosen the concierge medicine model to protect patient health and well-being. With concierge medicine, you pay a monthly fee. This allows Central Jersey Family Physicians to take significantly fewer patients, ensuring that each time you visit their office, you are their highest priority.
How does concierge medicine work?
To best enable Central Jersey Family Physicians to enact a preventive, patient-centered approach, they aligned with MDVIP. This is a national network of primary care providers who have chosen to take on fewer patients so they can be more involved in the wellness of each individual.
Working with MDVIP, Central Jersey Family Physicians can offer their patients convenience, more individualized care, and better support in achieving their health goals. And they do all of this through the MDVIP Wellness Program.
What does the MDVIP Wellness Program include?
Your concierge medicine membership unlocks this Wellness Program, which is designed to help you lead your healthiest, most balanced life. It starts with regular wellness checkups. During these appointments, your Central Jersey Family Physicians doctor talks with you about your personal and family health history and performs a physical exam. But they don’t stop there. They also use this time to talk with you about your health goals, developing a personalized plan to help you reach them.
What’s more, your Wellness Program membership allows your Central Jersey Family Physicians provider to perform all of the right screenings and diagnostic tests based on your current health, your family history, and other factors. While some of these tests usually aren’t covered by insurance, they’re included with your Wellness Program membership. This allows Central Jersey Family Physicians to catch any conditions early when they’re easiest to treat. In short, these regular wellness checkups protect your health.
For this kind of comprehensive, personalized care, call Central Jersey Family Physicians today.
