If you feel like your doctor doesn’t pay attention to you when you visit him or her, or perhaps your HMO doesn’t let you or your family see a doctor as often as you feel that’s needed you might be interested in looking into MDVIP where they practice something that’s known as Concierge Medicine.
MDVIP is a health care program where the doctors are able to give more focused care to their patients. In fact, the doctors only take on a limited patient load in order to devote more of their time and attention to their current patients.
The focus at MDVIP is preventive medicine. By that I mean the doctors that work with MDVIP provide more detailed and thorough screenings and checkups for their patients in order to catch any illnesses or disorders early or in fact prevent them from occurring in the first case.
Patients are actually given their doctors cell phone or beeper number that they may call day or night if they feel it’s necessary. Now that’s VIP service isn’t it. I’m actually kind of surprised that they offer that level of service!
Now, I live in Canada and we have a great health care system but one of the things we don’t get is such personalized healthcare. That’s one advantage Americans have over us.
If MDVIP sounds like a great health care program you can visit the MDVIP website and learn more about switching over. There’s quite a bit of information on the site including patient testimonials, an FAQ and information about joining the program.
