What is concierge medicine?

Concierge medicine is a highly-personalized type of medical care that provides additional support and advocacy services as well as additional care options like extended hours and additional options for communicating with the doctor. Concierge programs are typically provided on a membership basis, conferring exclusive options that make it easier for people with very hectic lifestyles to continue to receive top-quality care despite their busy schedules.
