Concierge Medical Practice in Mechanicsburg, PA

Never Underestimate the Investment you Make in Yourself

Primary Concierge Medical Practices is an enhanced way to experience health care. The Burick Center for Health & Wellness has a limit to the number of patients that can be in the practice. Concierge medicine in Mechanicsburg, PA ensures each patient receives as much time and attention as they need.

Patients pay a membership fee to be part of the practice and receive many benefits in return. The primary concierge physician acts as your primary care provider, coordinates your medical care, and is an advocate for your health and wellness.

Primary Concierge Medicine vs. Traditional Primary Care

In today’s world, healthcare can be quite frustrating. This is mainly due to the fact that the average time to see a traditional primary care doctor is about 6 weeks. When you do finally get in for an appointment, the average wait time in the waiting room is around a half hour and then when you’re called into the exam room, you experience an additional 15 to 20 minutes of, you guessed it, more waiting! Finally, in comes the doctor, only to have an appointment that lasts 5 minutes with little time for casual conversation and niceties.

At The Burick Center, our doctors have a significantly smaller number of patients than traditional primary care doctors, which allows us to take the proper amount of time with each patient. This ensures all questions are answered and they receive the time and attention they deserve as a human being. This in a nutshell is concierge medicine.

What is Primary Concierge Medicine?

Primary Concierge Medicine, also known as relationship-based medicine, boutique medicine, concierge care, retainer-based medicine, direct primary care and platinum practice is membership-based healthcare that is personalized, accessible and convenient.

For a monthly fee, you receive unlimited office and telehealth visits, free of any time limits and lasting as long as you need. You also do not have to worry about copays and other charges, as this is covered in your monthly fee. You also gain access to your doctor’s direct phone line for medical questions.

Additional Benefits of Primary Concierge Medical Practices:

There’s No Need for Lines or Appointments.

Primary Concierge medicine or concierge care refers to the practice of providing round-the-clock medical care available anytime, anywhere. When you get concierge medicine, you’ll be paying a medical professional a yearly or monthly fee for their exclusive and responsive treatment whenever you’re near each other.

This way, you never have to wait days or weeks for your appointment, nor will you have to endure through hours in a waiting room. For the most part, concierge practices arrive within the day or the next day, depending on the severity of your condition.

Telemedicine Consultations and More

Another emerging trend these days is telemedicine. Aside from regular updates and communication with your primary care physician, they also offer more convenient virtual conferences, meetings, and appointments with you to discuss your health.

Often, it can be inconvenient and time-consuming to go all the way to the doctor’s office, depending on your daily schedule. Concierge practices are all about making your life and managing your health much easier. If part of that requires fewer face-to-face meetings unless necessary, they can do that for you!

Better Patient/Physician Relationship

Having more direct access to your physician means you’re more likely to develop a trusting and familiar relationship. By facilitating the development of a personal bond, you’re more willing to follow the recommendations for preventative care.

More Time With Your Physician

As mentioned earlier, the norm for most primary care physicians is to schedule patient visits at 15-minute intervals. Physicians are typically under pressure to keep moving between patients at these 15-minute intervals, which means they are probably more focused on watching the clock during your examination than actually giving you their full undividided attention that you deserve. The pressure to complete an office visit in this short timeframe may created missed opportunities for patient education and advice.

Primary Concierge physicians typically spend 30 minutes or more on a patient visit. This extra time allows for a more thorough examination, so they can help identify the root cause of your issue and talk with you not only about a plan of action, but educate you on the why’s behind this recommended plan.

The Bottom Line

The most frustrating part about traditional primary care is that it often involves too many things that have nothing to do with the patient. A great alternative to all of that is concierge medicine.

The Burick Center for Health and Wellness in Mechanicsburg, PA, specializes in dramatic biological interventions to improve your life and well-being. Our primary goal is to provide our members with the best care possible. If you are interested in primary concierge medicine or becoming a member, contact us today for a free consultation.
