If you’ve ever felt like you needed more time at a doctor’s appointment, you may have wondered whether to schedule extra visits or find some other way around the issue. However, a recent survey found that the wait time to get an appointment with your family doctor has increased over the past decade to around 24 days. 

If you’re tired of struggling to find appointments or having to rush through your problems, it may be time to consider concierge medicine. Concierge medicine allows doctors to select a smaller caseload, so they have extra time they can dedicate to you. This can be a good way to get an appointment quickly and allow enough time to cover all your issues with your provider.

Dr. Evan Allen of Allen Wellness & Medical Center in Henderson, Nevada, explains more about how concierge medicine can help you get all your questions answered.

When should you use concierge medicine? 

Family practice medicine has changed considerably in recent years, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic. The field of family practice medicine has been badly affected by the results of the pandemic, causing longer wait times to see a doctor. 

Luckily, you can use concierge medicine whenever you want. It can be especially helpful if you have a complicated health issue or if you just need a longer appointment. 

If you have a particular health issue with multiple components or caused by many factors, you might want to book an appointment using concierge medicine, so we can take the extra time you need.

What’s different about a concierge medicine appointment?
