When it comes to arranging for healthcare services from a trusted medical professional, the traditional method for arranging appointments and getting into the examination room doesn’t always work for some patients.
If you’re an individual with little flexibility in your schedule, for example, or cannot wait for a slot to open up when the patient schedule is already full, you might be hard-pressed to find a doctor to help you in a timely manner. That’s where concierge medicine can make a big impact.
And if you are concerned about continuity of care issues and prioritize working with the same medical team for your health situation, you may have more reason than most to sign up for concierge doctor services. You’ll be glad to know that Shasta Meadows Wellness Center offers concierge medicine services for the community here in Redding.
Doctors have been offering concierge medicine for about 15 years now. Essentially, concierge medicine is where the patient pays the physician an annual fee to be their physician.
A concierge doctor does not work with a tight schedule crammed with patients. Instead, doctors can take their time and serve more as an advocate, such as by facilitating referrals, consultations as needed, and helping arrange for tests to get lab results expeditiously.
People who live or work in or near Redding and who cannot wait for medical care no longer need to wonder how they are going to see a professional for diagnosis and treatment of a new ailment or how to obtain ongoing care for a chronic condition.
With that in mind, here are the main reasons why you should consider arranging for care from our concierge medical doctor:

Lack of quick access to lab results or the medication you need can negatively impact the quality of your healthcare.
When your doctor determines you need to visit a specialist, there should be no problem getting seen as soon as possible.
Imagine waiting for important results or an answer to a pressing question about the state of your health. Concierge medicine helps ease such wait times.
