Concierge Medicine Q & A

What is concierge medicine?

Concierge medicine, also known as membership medicine, is a close patient relationship with a doctor where you pay a quarterly, semi-annual, or yearly membership fee instead of paying for each visit separately. Dr. Carrington offers this service in exchange for highly attentive, personalized care and around-the-clock access to him when you need it the most.

What are the benefits of concierge medicine?

When choosing concierge medicine, you’ll reap numerous health, wellness, and financial benefits, including:

  • A close partnership with Dr. Carrington
  • Ample time at appointments to receive quality care without time constraints
  • A focus on wellness to prevent sickness and disease

How does concierge medicine work?

You pay Dr. Carrington quarterly, bi-annually, or annually to receive unlimited appointments and have as much time as you need with him. Key components of concierge medicine include:

  • You pay out of pocket vs. using health insurance
  • You’re charged a yearly flat rate that covers a comprehensive annual preventative exam and 24/7 access to the physician 
  • You can use a health savings account to cover costs
  • You may save money in the long run

Once you sign up for concierge medicine, Dr. Carrington gives you the time and attention you deserve at each appointment, any time of day or via telemedicine. This is true whether you have a chronic health condition like diabetes or are sick with the flu.
