Tell us about Glenville Medical Concierge Care and how the concierge model is unique.
Concierge or membership medicine is officially defined as a model in which patients pay an annual retainer to become a member of a small, personalized practice. At Glenville Medical Concierge Care, that means a patient-focused experience, tailored to the individual, with ample time for what matters most. Same-day appointments are available, visits are extended and leisurely, and physicians develop a personal plan for wellness and prevention. Most importantly, patients are able to reach a physician directly via cell or email, whether it’s after office hours, in the middle of the night or at the hospital. This level of care is simply not possible at a traditional practice.

How can I determine if concierge medicine is right for me?
Concierge medicine has proven to be an extraordinarily rewarding way to receive care, and patients who join a membership practice view it as a worthwhile investment in their long-term health. The practice appeals to a variety of patients, from those in excellent health who want to focus on prevention and wellness, to those dealing with multiple chronic conditions who want an advocate dedicated to maintaining their quality of life. The most important factor in deciding whether to join a concierge practice is determining the value you place on preserving a relationship with your physician.
