In a nutshell, a concierge medical practice is limited in size to several hundred patients – rather than the several thousand that is typical in conventional medical practices. This allows your concierge doctor to devote more time and personal attention to each patient. At Adult Medicine Concierge, we see a limited number of patients per day – significantly less than the typical 25 per day seen in conventional medical practices.
Having fewer patients allows Dr. Irma Lopez to offer:
- Same-day or next-day appointments with little or no wait time
- Longer visits with the doctor that are never rushed
- More personalized care
- 24/7 access to the doctor via private phone number
- Other important healthcare amenities
If Dr. Lopez is already with a patient when you call, a detailed message will be taken, and your call will be returned promptly, ensuring your question or issue is addressed in a timely fashion.
