Concierge Medicine Q & A

What is concierge medicine?

Concierge medicine is a unique healthcare model that allows physicians and patients to work together without the barriers found in the traditional medical model. 

With concierge medicine, you pay a single fee to Howard Health and Wellness, which covers greatly expanded access to medical care, including:

  • In-office visits
  • Telehealth visits
  • Phone calls
  • Text messages
  • Emails
  • All other interactions with the office

With concierge medicine, you bypass all the complications and frustrations of insurance for routine medical care. 

The practice doesn’t accept any type of insurance, so you’ll never have a copay if you’re a concierge program member. However, the team strongly suggests that patients maintain insurance for lab testing, specialist consultations, and hospitalizations.

Concierge care is a way to remove hassles and barriers so you can get exceptional care around the clock whenever you need it.

What can I expect with concierge medicine? 

You will first have a  meet-and-greet with Dr. Howard and the team. You’ll get an office tour and learn more about the process.  Dr. Howard will review the philosophy of the office and how his practice operates. 

Once you joint the practice, the first visit usually takes one or two hours because it involves a full medical history review, a comprehensive physical exam and the creation of a highly personalized health plan. At that time, Dr. Howard will likely order laboratory testing and/or imaging as well. 

The first visit also includes an explanation of the electronic health record portal and access instructions. You can use this portal 24/7 to see test results and view your care plan. 

Your visits are always thorough, unhurried, and focused on your individual needs. Between visits, you can reach out anytime and get a fast response. The office provides same-day and next-day appointments for concierge patients. ‚Äč
