SMD Concierge Medicine Q & A

What is concierge medicine?

Concierge medicine is an approach to health care that links patients and practitioners without having to go through the traditional scheduling process. Dr. Ditz and other practitioners who practice concierge medicine make themselves available to a select few patients who want easier access to the diagnostic and treatment services they need to thrive. 

Traditional medical practice often means lengthy wait times before you can come in to see your doctor. For those with pressing health needs, that waiting period can be a source of anxiety and the cause of worsening symptoms. 

Concierge medicine allows you to book a same-day or next-day appointment with Dr. Ditz. That means you won’t have to live with troubling symptoms for long and can focus on getting better. 

Will I have enough time with my doctor?

Concierge medicine also allows for more face time with your practitioner. Because Dr. Ditz gets to know you and your specific health needs, he can tailor your visit to yield optimal results.

For example, an older patient who has a chronic health condition and is experiencing mild cognitive decline will need more time and attention than a young executive who simply wants a thorough annual exam. Concierge medicine allows Dr. Ditz to spend more time with the patients who need it, without compromising the services provided to all other patients at the practice. 

Is concierge medicine the only available option?  

Securing concierge medical care requires an annual or monthly fee. This fee provides you with streamlined communications with Dr. Ditz, as well as quick scheduling, 24-hour medical advice via telephone, and swifter delivery of medications. 

However, not everyone needs this level of care. For many men and women in Melbourne, Florida, traditional medical services are perfectly sufficient. Family Practice of Suntree and Viera made the decision to offer concierge medicine to provide options for patients of all ages. 

If you’d like to learn more about the services available through concierge care and the value of this personalized approach, come in for a one-on-one consultation. Online scheduling is available and makes it easy to find a time that fits your busy life, or you’re always welcome to call the office to check appointment availability.
