Concierge Medicine Specialist
What is Concierge Medicine?
hen you choose concierge care, you pay a set fee to receive specific services. Dr. Ed offers different plans, so the level of services varies depending on the one you choose. No matter which plan you choose, you can count on the convenience of:
- No answering service. Your questions go straight to the doctor with almost immediate answers.
- Avoid office visits. When you send a text, pictures, or a video, Dr. Ed can answer your questions and provide treatment.
- Housecalls. If your child needs medical care on the weekend or after office hours, the doctor makes housecalls.
With concierge medicine, you don’t need to wonder and worry about what to do with a sick child because you have direct access to the doctor any time you need it.
Why Should Parents Consider Concierge Medicine?
Life with children is unpredictable, which is a challenge for all parents, but is especially anxiety-producing for first-time parents. All parents inevitably face issues such as a newborn who is unusually cranky and won’t eat or a toddler with a fever or a rash.
When those moments arise, parents face a lot of decisions. Do you watch and wait or use over-the-counter medications? Is the problem severe enough to call the doctor at midnight?
Concierge medicine eliminates all those questions and concerns. When you enroll in concierge medicine at Southern California Integrative Wellness Center, you have open access to Dr. Ed, and your questions are answered quickly.
What Other Benefits do you Gain With Concierge Medicine?
Although Dr. Ed always provides in-depth and individualized care, participating in concierge medicine takes that concept to a higher level. With many concierge plans, your fee entitles you to longer office visits, which provides more time to talk with the doctor and be sure you understand everything you need to know about helping your child.
Concierge medicine also makes your child’s health care more affordable, as it guarantees a specific level of services for a set fee. In many cases, these services aren’t covered by health insurance, so you can get the unlimited health care your child needs for an affordable fee.
Concierge plans are personalized so that every family can choose their price point and services. If you’d like to learn more, schedule an interview by calling Southern California Integrative Wellness Center.
