F.A.Q.s

How does a concierge/direct primary care model of pediatrics work?

We have our membership model of care down to a science. Each Pediatrician will take a *very* limited number of patients. The limited number of patients always allows for longer well checks, same day sick visits, and a manageable number of virtual encounters (emails, texts). During the day, you’ll be seeing patients for well checks and sick visits, as well as handling virtual care for patients with quick and easy questions. We don’t answer to insurance companies, and we don’t have to deal with red tape when a child needs to be seen. We get to truly provide the best care for our patients and get kids better, faster. We have close relationships with all the top pediatric specialists, so we can help quarterback care and truly provide that old-fashioned style of care and get to know our patients and families. We value integrity most of all and utilize evidence-based medicine to provide the very best care for our patients.

 

Will I really be on call 24/7? Will I get calls all night long?

Not even close. Because you’ll work with such a small number of families, they’ll have more time at appointments to spend with their doctor. When you’re available and reachable virtually, they will often times not have to come in for a sick visit for quick questions and diagnoses that can be made with a photo, video, or over the phone. Being contacted by a family in the middle of the night happens less than a handful of times per year, mainly because illnesses usually don’t begin in the middle of the night. We’ve already given anticipatory guidance and parents have the extra layer of assurance that should something be truly urgent, they can always reach us.  Because families know that after-hours call ring directly to our cell phones, they are very respectful of the services we offer. We also have protocol in place for best practice contact methods so that the virtual care is never abusive or overwhelming. Our membership model of care leads to happier patients AND happier doctors. Our pediatricians value time with their own families above all else, and we’ve built a “dream job” schedule to create the perfect work/life balance.

 Will I have my own patients? How does your practice recruit new patients?

Each doctor in our practice has their own set of patients. This way, you will develop and grow close relationships with all of your families and provide the very best care since you’ll know their health history the best. Each physician takes turns covering on weekends and for vacation time to assure that each doctor will get ample time off in addition to a “golden weekend” to be completely off every month, in addition to 2-3 out of office days per week.

Our practice has a very large word-of-mouth following and we are already on a waiting list for several age groups. We do a ton of community events, media, blogs, Facebook videos, and each new physician has their own dedicated marketing director to help recruit new patients. Our doctors become local celebrities!

How can I utilize my own special interests within pediatrics in this position?

We’re passionate about working with passionate people. Wherever your special interests may be, we want to showcase them. Through blogging, community events, news/media, Facebook/Instagram live videos, and patient education, we’re committed to presenting your platform to our community and working with you on the areas of interest that drive you.
