Concierge Primary Care Q & A

What is concierge primary care?

Concierge primary care combines two specialties to ensure you receive personalized medical attention:

Concierge medicine

Concierge medicine is an innovative approach to the way you receive medical care. When you choose concierge medicine, you pay a predetermined fee and in return, you get specific services.

Among the many benefits of concierge medicine, the most important include:

  • Prompt appointments
  • Longer appointments
  • Direct access to the physician
  • Guaranteed level of services

With this approach, you know you will get the care you need without worrying about what insurance may or may not cover.

Primary care medicine

Primary care providers manage all aspects of your health. They're the first person you call when you feel sick, sustain an injury, or need help with a chronic disease.

As your primary care physician, Dr. Katz offers preventive health care and diagnoses and treats the full range of health conditions. His goal is to work together with you, forming a team that supports your health and well-being.

How does concierge primary care manage chronic diseases?

Nearly all chronic diseases can be prevented by following a healthy lifestyle. Once they develop, you have the condition for the rest of your life because no cures are currently available.

The most common chronic health conditions include:

  • Arthritis
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Asthma (one of the few you can't prevent)

After Dr. Katz diagnoses a chronic condition, he helps you stay healthy with ongoing management that includes lifestyle changes and medications. You can slow down disease progression or possibly stop it from getting worse by diligently following your treatment plan.

Disease management differs for each type of chronic condition. For example, if you have diabetes, you manage the disease by monitoring carbohydrates and taking medications that keep your blood sugar within the normal range.
