Concierge Medicine Q & A
What is concierge medicine?
Concierge medicine is a more personalized approach to care. Most traditional primary care providers follow the health insurance model and carry a high patient load to survive financially. This insurance model is why you may need to wait for months to get an appointment and then only have 20 minutes with your doctor.
At Nightwater Medical Center, concierge medicine is a membership program. Instead of using health insurance, you pay a monthly $49 fee and $149 per visit. With concierge medicine, Nightwater Medical Center sees fewer patients, which allows for greater access to your primary care provider, longer appointment times, and shorter waits in the spacious lobby.
What can I expect from the concierge medicine program?
You can expect comprehensive, personalized, and attentive care when participating in the concierge medicine program at Nightwater Medical Center. With longer appointment times, the primary care practice develops a stronger patient-doctor relationship, which improves overall trust. The more trust you have in your provider, the more likely you are to share your health concerns and get the immediate care needed to prevent long-term health complications.
Located in the trendy south district of New Orleans, the high-end primary care practice is in tune with local professionals. It provides lengthy consultations or quick and efficient visits to suit individual health and lifestyle needs.
