The Importance of Concierge Medicine for Chronic Conditions

If you or a loved one is suffering from a chronic condition, it can be overwhelming and stressful trying to make sure your doctors and specialists are all on the same page with your treatment.

Juggling medications, hospitalizations and recommendations can be detrimental to your overall care when everyone is not in sync. That is where a concierge medicine comes in. Think of your concierge physician as your single source for all things medical—your personal physician and advocate who will always be by your side helping you navigate the complex health system.

Peace of Mind with Concierge Medicine

With concierge medicine, you can have peace of mind knowing that you have one physician overseeing all aspects of your medical care, and keeping your overall health and best interests top priority.

With a concierge provider from LifeScape Premier, you never feel rushed and always know that your physician is there for you. A traditional primary care physician visit lasts under ten minutes. That is not enough time to get to the root cause of most chronic conditions, or receive quality care to truly address and resolve your symptoms.

Because concierge physicians only see a select number of patients, they are able to provide more one-on-one interaction, depending on your individual needs. With LifeScape Premier’s concierge program, you also receive around-the-clock access to your concierge physician through email, text and phone, so when an urgent matter arises, you can easily get in touch with your doctor.

Quickly Return to Health with Same-Day Appointments

At LifeScape Premier, we will always use your time wisely with same-day appointments. This will allow you to get in, get out, get better and get back to living your most healthful life possible. You get the quality of care that you deserve for your chronic condition. No more wasting time in a waiting room only to be hurried along and shooed out the door with your questions unanswered, a misdiagnosis or no solutions to treat the root of your condition.

Understanding Your Chronic Condition

Chronic diseases are not something to take lightly. In fact, they are the leading cause of death and disability in the United States:

  • Chronic diseases are responsible for 7 of 10 deaths each year. (Source)
  • 60 percent of American adults live with at least one chronic condition. (Source)
  • Chronic conditions account for hundreds of billions of dollars in health care spending every year. (Source)
  • Chronic diseases can reduce a person’s quality of life and be disabling if left untreated or undiagnosed. (Source)

Understanding your condition is essential to managing it effectively. When your physician knows your unique and sometimes complicated situation, they will be better equipped to help you achieve the most desirable outcome in the management or treatment of your condition. The big picture and quality of your life will be addressed, not just your symptoms. No Band-Aids here or a prescription slip to placate you.

Concierge Medicine: Focusing on the Totality of You

Here are just some of LifeScape Premier’s concierge medicine patients who have experienced the vast benefits to their overall health and wallets.

"LifeScape Premier’s concierge program has been a lifesaver for my family and me. With children in colleges in different states, appropriate access to competent medical care has been challenging. Knowing that [LifeScape] is immediately accessible to evaluate and address these concerns is critical... [LifeScape] keeps my family’s health in top condition with rigorous annual physical exams that address all of our medical needs. This level of medical oversight has ultimately resulted in minimizing medical expenditures and eliminated excessive worry for me. It has been an extremely beneficial investment for my family. ” - BR

"I have been a patient with Dr. Wilder since around 2001 and became a concierge patient when Lifescape took on the concierge program. From the beginning, I found the entire staff, and Dr. Wilder as my PC, is wonderful at educating the patient in how to take care of themselves, understanding their bodies, and treating the patient as an individual, rather than "by the book". Wow, what a concept!

Many forms of treatment are considered based on the patient's need, including holistic methodologies. Lifescape Premier is, without a doubt, truly a premier medical group where it is, first and foremost, always "what's best for the patient". - AG

Living with chronic illness can be tough, but you will feel well taken care of with your concierge medicine physician. They won’t just treat a symptom here and there, but you will be treated as a whole—emotionally, physically and medically. Always.
