Living in Canada and working in the health care field I can’t complain too much about our health care system. Well … sure you can always complain about something, but considering that people in other parts of the world don’t have access to health care I really can’t complain much.
Now, having said that, I know that the US health care system is very different that my own. I know that you generally need to have health insurance to get access to services that you need, and sometimes HMO’s don’t allow their clients to see the doctors that they want to see, or to have the tests that have been recommended.
Now I’m not going to get into all of that as that would be a huge post in itself. However what I did want to tell you about does have something to do with the level of service you might currently be experiencing.
If you are tired of not being able to see the doctors that you think you should be seeing, or not being able to see your doctor as often as you think you need to then you might want to take a look at the services provided by MDVIP.
MDVIP provides a service that’s somewhat like having your own concierge doctors. Even doctors seem to enjoy working with MDVIP because they can spend whatever amount of time they need to with each patient, they can counsel their patients properly about diseases and disorders that they have, or that they are at risk of getting because they have time to sit down and talk with each patient, and they don’t have to worry about tests and other services being declined by outside HMO’s.
Think about it from the patient side of things. Wouldn’t it be nice to make an appointment with your doctor to talk over all the symptoms you might be having? To actually sit down and get a full understanding of a disorder that you might have recently been diagnosed as having? Instead of being handed a pamphlet and being told that you’ll hear from another service about treatment?
Physicians at MDVIP focus on preventative medicine which is why they take the time to explain things to their patients and discuss concerns so that they can better evaluate a patient, their progress and their risk for future ailments and try to prevent those diseases or disorders from happening.
The doctors limit their practice to only 600 patients so that they can devote the proper amount of care and time to each individual in their practice.
As a patient you’ll get the MDVIP yearly physical which is a complete physical, a personalized wellness plan, same or next day appointments that last as long as needed, and access to your physician through a 24 hour pager or cell phone.
To me, this sounds like medicine the way it’s always been supposed to be practiced.
