What is a concierge medicine program?

Dr. Peraino’s concierge medicine program makes getting the health care you need easy. By paying an annual fee, you and your family can access the individualized, committed care you deserve without having to sit in a waiting room or schedule your appointments in advance.

With traditional health care, you pay your doctor for each visit. You would think this would guarantee their attention, but many people report feeling rushed or getting little one-on-one time with their doctors. That’s because most medical practices must maintain a large patient list to keep their doors open.

With concierge medicine, you pay a fee that covers all of your visits. What’s more, the retainer allows Dr. Peraino to keep her patient list minimal. This gives her more time to provide thorough and personalized medical care. 

What types of benefits does concierge medicine offer?

The greatest benefit of concierge medicine is spending more time with Dr. Peraino. This allows you to work together toward your health goals. Concierge medicine patients also get:

  • Comprehensive annual physicals
  • Convenient, thorough in-office testing
  • At least 30 minutes with Dr. Peraino at each visit
  • 24/7 phone access to Dr. Peraino
  • Same-day or next-day appointments
  • On-time appointments
  • Referrals to medical specialists
  • Routine preventive screenings
  • Treatment of acute illnesses and injuries
  • Chronic disease management
  • Prescription medications and refills

Partnering with Dr. Peraino and her staff can reduce your risk of acute and chronic health problems and help you live a long and active life. 

Can I benefit from concierge medicine?

If you’re considering concierge medicine for you and your family, request a no-obligation appointment with Dr. Peraino. At the visit, you talk with Dr. Peraino about your family’s medical history and current needs. 

After gathering the necessary information, she can determine if concierge medicine will benefit you and your loved ones. 

Is concierge medicine an alternative to health insurance?

No. Concierge medicine isn’t an alternative to health insurance. It’s important you still have coverage. That said, it may be able to help save you money. Since membership fees cover basic medical services, many concierge members switch to high-deductible health plans after signing up.
