Concierge Medicine Transition and Start-Up
If you are one of the many physicians today who is frustrated with the direction of your medical practice, tired of seeing more patients making less money and working evenings or weekends just to keep up, you are not alone. More and more physicians are turning to concierge or “direct pay practice” to regain control of their practice as well as the ability to improve the quality of patient care.
According to the Concierge Medicine Research Collective, concierge medical practices have increased tenfold over the past four years. Additionally, physicians and specialists who have converted to a direct pay or concierge practice report that they feel a stronger sense of control over their lives, income and how they deliver patient care.
Our concierge team works with physicians in any stage of the decision-making process. In the early stages, we assist in the assessment, market feasibility, planning, patient conversion, and more. You can rest assured that you’ve considered all the benefits of transitioning and remain confident that you’ll avoid any pitfalls. Our concierge consultants can help you:
