Imagine arriving at a boutique medical center and being invited to enter through a members-only, private side door – with no waiting. No having to sit in a crowded lobby, but rather being taken right to a room for a visit with the doctor.
And concierge orthopedics works the same way, specializing in the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic physicians specialize in diagnosing and treating injuries and health conditions involving the bones, muscles, and ancillary structures – everything from arthritis to a torn ACL to a sprained ankle.
How Does Concierge Orthopedics Work?
Let’s say that over the weekend you fell and hurt your back. Whereas most people would wind up at the emergency room and possibly have to wait for hours – or receive subpar treatment – concierge patients can call their concierge direct phone number to get an appointment quickly.
They will likely be seen the same day or the following day. Concierge medicine patients have this perk as well as direct email access to the doctor. This is what personalized medical care is all about.
Benefits of Concierge Medicine
The benefits of concierge orthopedics are clear. If you have arthritis, are an athlete, or enjoy an active lifestyle and require occasional (but urgent) medical treatment on your joints, signing up for concierge orthopedics is an ideal solution.
Would you think it possible to get a knee replacement within a couple of weeks? As a concierge patient, your name goes right to the top of the list.
You could reduce your wait time from weeks to days or hours. Plus, all of your scans and medical records are handed to you at the conclusion of each visit for any other doctors who might need them, or for your own personal records.
Every concierge patient is given a direct phone number to consult with the doctor and to arrange every aspect of the patient’s care, including appointment scheduling and travel arrangements, if necessary.
