Concierge Medicine Q&A

What is concierge medicine?

Concierge medicine is a membership program where patients pay an annual fee for connectivity to a more convenient, connected, and collaborative relationship with their primary care physician. Membership offers amenities and enhancements designed to support your healthy lifestyle.

What are the benefits of concierge medicine?

There are many benefits to concierge medicine, including:

Same and next-day extended appointments

The concierge medicine model allows Dr. Lyons to spend more time with each patient. He sees fewer patients per day than the typical primary care physician, so he can offer thorough exams. 

Fewer patients on the schedule each day also allows for same-day appointments when needed and scheduling outside of normal business hours.

24/7 connectivity

Dr. Lyons offers patients 24/7 connectivity through a custom telehealth app. You can use the app at any time to get medical advice, even if you wake up in the middle of the night with medical concerns.

Robust wellness program

The concierge medicine model allows Dr. Lyons to deliver a personalized approach to your overall wellness. Members frequently add important health enhancements that are not medically necessary but promote improved health and wellness, such as personalized health coaching.

Care coordination

Member patients receive connectivity to more than 60,000 Castle Connoly Top Doctors® as needed for consultations and referrals.

What’s the difference between primary care and concierge medicine?

The difference between a traditional primary care physician and concierge medicine is the environment and level of care provided. Both primary care and concierge medicine are provided by board-certified physicians, but concierge medicine physicians like Dr. Lyons can:

  • Spend more time with each patient during scheduled appointments
  • See fewer patients and develop closer relationships
  • 24/7 connectivity to Dr. Lyons via a custom telehealth app
  • Provide same day or extended day appointment availability
  • Offer more comprehensive annual physicals
  • Provide personalized health coaching for improved preventive care

If you’re frustrated by the long wait times to schedule an appointment with your primary care doctor and the lack of time you spend discussing your health care needs with your doctor, concierge medicine with Dr. Lyons offers a better alternative.
