Concierge Medicine takes the old-school practice of seeing doctors in your home and combines it with modern, innovative medical techniques. Since you may be more used to a more clinical setting, you likely have questions about how our method compares.
If you don’t see your questions below, feel free to contact us with any concerns or inquiries. We happily address any potential patients who are curious about how our house call services work.
What is ConciMed?
Q: What is a house call?
A: A house call consists of a doctor coming to your home, office, or hotel to treat urgent care or primary care concerns. We at ConciMed have a network of physicians. We provide one-off visits that can either be based on a specific service we provide or any non-emergent health concerns you may have. For those who prefer constant or preventative care, we design personalized memberships in which we address your specific health and wellness concerns and formulate a strategy to optimize your health.
Q: Can I call ConciMed for emergencies?
A: If you experience an emergent medical problem, please call 911 immediately. We treat urgent care needs but do not attend to emergencies.
Q: Does ConciMed accept insurance?
A: ConciMed is a fee for service concierge medical practice, so we accept cash or credit cards at the time of service. We do, however, provide you with the necessary bill documentation to submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement—which they may or may not choose to give.
Q: What is preventative medicine?
A: Preventative medicine aims to prevent, treat, and solve health problems. It starts with analyzing your current health based on blood test results and medical history. With these data points combined with your specific health concerns, we can proactively take steps to avoid health risks that may affect you in the future.
Q: How long will it take a ConciMed doctor to arrive at my house?
A: We aim to respond to your appointment request within an hour of contact and will usually arrive to you in that timeframe. At certain times later at night or when our physicians are with other patients, however, it may take a little longer.
Q: Can a ConciMed membership replace my family doctor?
A: Yes. We put together a custom health plan that will address your specific medical needs. Moreover, you will spend more one-on-one time with your doctor with ConciMed and be able to take proactive control of your health in a stronger capacity.
Q: How long do appointments take?
A: A typical appointment will take about 1-2 hours, but we don’t place time constraints on our in-home doctor visits. We strive to provide the highest quality of care, so we take any and all the time necessary to fully address your health needs.
Q: How do in-home lab or vital tests work?
A: We send a lab technician or medical professional to your home at your requested time to draw blood or take vitals (such as blood pressure, x-rays, and so on). We then send the blood to be tested or have our medical staff review your results and get back back to you promptly.
Q: How can I make a one-off appointment?
A: You can call us to either book a specific service or a house call for any urgent or primary care needs you may have. Soon you’ll be able to schedule your appointment for either of these online by choosing your specific service or simply our “house call” service option and pay online or in person
Q: How do in-home doctor visits work?
A: You first call us to book your specific service or let us know why you would like an in-home doctor’s appointment. We then arrive at your home, office, or hotel in about an hour or two. The appointment will go similarly to that at a doctor’s office, except more time and consideration will go into your care. If the visit is part of your membership, it will have been scheduled within your annual plan. Depending on your needs, doctor visits will be scheduled certain times a year—even monthly if necessary. You’ll be in a comfortable environment and can choose where in your home, office, or hotel room you’d like us to set up.
Q: How often will I receive an in-home doctor’s visit or medical exam?
A: If you become a ConciMed member, the amount of doctor’s appointments you receive annually will be based on your specific medical needs. This can be anywhere from 2 to 24 times a year with any added necessary visits from physical therapists, lab technicians, or nurse practitioners.
Q: Does your medical staff see adults & children?
A: Yes. We have pediatricians and pediatric nurses on staff as well as a slew of highly qualified doctors to attend to adult needs.
Q: What if I need to be referred to a specialist?
A: If you require specialist medical care, we’ll refer you to one of our many top-of-the-line specialists in our network and remain updated on your medical care and subsequent needs to which we can attend.
Q: Do you have an office where you see patients?
A: No. As a concierge practice, we attend to our patient’s healthcare in their homes, offices, or hotel rooms.
