Concierge Medicine Q&A

What does the term “concierge medicine” mean?

Many great hotels and resorts offer concierge service. When you check in, you have access to a professional who helps you find a great restaurant, secure event or tour tickets, or find the perfect place to buy a special gift. Concierge medicine offers a similar level of personalized service. 

Practitioners who choose to specialize in concierge medicine feel strongly that patients should have easy access to their health provider. They believe that health services are best delivered in a setting where a trusting professional bond has developed. 

High Mark Internal Medicine accepts insurance, but Dr. Contreras is proud to also offer concierge medicine through a monthly fee structure.   

What are some of the benefits of concierge medicine?

Convenience is a primary benefit of concierge medicine. Because High Mark Internal Medicine limits the number of patients they accept, you won’t have to schedule your visits many weeks in advance. If you need a sick visit, you can often come in on the same day. 

If you don’t have insurance, concierge medicine is also a great way to manage health care costs. You simply pay a monthly fee that covers your primary care services, including annual exams and preventive health resources. This helps you manage your budget and know exactly what to expect in terms of annual expenses. 

Unrushed, highly personalized visits are yet another reason why patients and practitioners prefer the concierge approach. You’ll never feel like a number on a spreadsheet, and Dr. Contreras has the opportunity to get to know you and your unique health needs. 

What happens if I need specialized health services?

Now and then, you might need specialized health services. If that need arises, Dr. Contreras can help you find the best practitioner for you. He remains in communication with your extended health team as you move through specialized treatment and ensures that your personal medical record accurately reflects the details of your care. 

If you ever need to be hospitalized, Dr. Contreras provides inpatient care. This ensures you’re seen by a practitioner who knows your health history and is dedicated to helping you get back on your feet and comfortably home as soon as possible.
