Concierge Medicine For the Masses

Concierge Medicine For the Masses " Dr. Alan Dappen is available to his patients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, by phone, email and in person. Visits may be scheduled on the same day if needed, prescriptions may be refilled any time without an office visit, he makes house calls, and all records are kept private and digital on a hard drive in his office.

How much would it cost to have the luxury of a personal physician on-call for your every whim?

Would you believe only about $300/year?

What's Dr. Dappen's secret to success? He accepts no insurance, keeps his overhead low, offers full price transparency, has physician extenders who work with him, and charges people for his time, not for a complex menu of tests and procedures.

'I believe in doing what is necessary and not doing what is not necessary. The healthcare system is broken because it has perverse incentives, complicated reimbursement strategies, and cuts the patient out of the billing process. When patients don't care what something costs, and believe that everything should be free, doctors will charge as much as they can. "

  2. Healthcare is a top priority for Americans, even in continually difficult economic times. With people all around the country cutting back on everything from eating out regularly to family vacations, it seemed only a matter of time before reductions on health care spending began. But that just isn’t so.

    Take Concierge Medicine for example, an avenue within the healthcare industry in which you can find personalized, quality care. Concierge Medicine has barely been touched by the recession.

    Studies show that Americans value their high quality healthcare and are not eager to give it up, even when money is tight. They see top healthcare as a necessity, not a luxury. And it’ll take more than hard times to change that.
