History? Changes in Health Care
As we are all aware, things have been changing in the US Healthcare system. While both the government and insurance companies continue to cut payments to physicians, practice overheads are climbing at an alarming rate. Primary Care Physicians are being forced to see more and more patients each day, a term we refer to as “treadmill medicine”. As a result, patient’s time with their physician has been dramatically cut as well.
A perfect storm is brewing. Obamacare is dumping thousands of new patients into an already over-burdened system. Hospital corporations such as Scottsdale Healthcare, Banner Health and others are buying up and merging practices to create “mega-practices”. As this is occurring, few and fewer medical students are going into Family Practice, adding to an already severe supply and demand problem.
As a result, patients do not have the luxury of spending quality time with their doctor and asking questions and truly understanding what their illness is and why their treatment plan is important. The patient becomes another spoke in the wheel. In and out of the office as quickly as possible. Another issue is the actual wait time to be seen. Many offices are booked several months in advance. To simply have a medication refill, requires patients to schedule an appointment, wait several minutes to an hour in a crowded waiting area just for a few minutes with the doctor.
After working in a hospital setting for almost 10 years, office practice was never an interest due to the above mentioned issues. However, after hearing patients complain and listening to their concerns, I decided to offer patients a new option for their health care. Patients really needed access to a doctor and wanted the convenience of NOT having to go through an office to ask a question. Patients wanted an advocate that would listen to their questions and concerns and help them navigate through the often confusing and rapid waters of healthcare.
My new practice model offers personalized, customized care for a limited number of patients. This “direct patient care” model allows my patients to have direct access to my services both in person and electronically (via phone, text, email or video conference).
I am offering this opportunity to be part of this new practice model to a maximum of 350 patients. This is on a first-come, first-served basis. As a member to the exclusive practice, you will receive an annual comprehensive exam. In addition to this, you will also have VIP access to the following:
