Medicine has changed over the past 20 to 40 years with massive additions of technology and reduced time with patients. The cherished doctor-patient relationship has evaporated, faded out and mostly vanished.
We do better. Our patients feel connected to their doctor.
This quote from a Washington Post article sums it up nicely:
As a physician “….I would reinvent myself today as a “confidentialist”. Someone who has the time to really get to know a patient. Someone available to be confided in. An advocate, not just for the moment, but across time. An explainer about what’s wrong; an educator about what will help and what will not. Someone who has the knowledge and confident wisdom to stand down the legions of specialists with the scalpels, catheters and scopes; the backbone to stand up to bottom-line toeing administrators and self-serving insurance execs and policy wonks.” - Jerald Winakur MD
It’s a heck of a job. We love it.
That means that, yes, we will get out of bed at 3 AM for existing patients. We will even listen to you at 3 AM.
If you want this relationship, then it’s time for an honest discussion about how to have a private physician 24/7 and still leverage ObamaCare or an individual PPO insurance in YOUR favor for a change.
Call and we'll help.
