Concierge medicine has been growing as people have begun to look into different ways to seeing a doctor. When wanting to avoid waiting times, and other inconveniences that may come with a visit to a doctor, concierge medicine can be a positive alternative.

Concierge medicine is a relationship between a patient and a primary care physician where the patient pays an annual fee or retainer. Patients can receive returned phone calls and same day appointments.  Some other benefits of concierge medicine are:

Personalized plan
24/7 availability
longer visits
personal attention
no co-payment or deductibles

These are just some of the many benefits associated with concierge medicine. Concierge care physicians are able to devote more time and energy to each of their patients. This healthcare option is definitely worth looking into if you are looking for a change.

Holistic and natural medicine are another option if looking for a change. Holistic medicine is a is the consideration of the whole body, mind, spirit, and emotions. In the holistic approach, the belief is that our well-being relies not just on our body physically but also psychological and emotional state. Both being equally important.

While many seniors may be reluctant to utilize these options because they usually only take cash and not insurance or Medicare options. Consider that is what makes these options empowering as they are NOT tied to insurance and Medicare restrictions. And could offer you life-saving, symptom relieving options that your Medicare Dr is not allowed to suggest.

Here is an Empowering Senior tip: Keep your primary physician for insurance-based visits and arrange a concierge physician as your backup for second opinions. And also, as an investment in your overall quality of life. See these medical doctors to have a review of your meds. In addition get suggestions for detailed supplements & vitamins and other preventative protocols and testing to enhance the way you feel. Furthermore, enhance your cognition and to hopefully add longevity to your mobility, independence and lifespan.
