Blog / Concierge Medicine / Blog / Concierge Medicine Why More Families Are Turning to Concierge Medicine as a Solution for Their Health Care Needs Between long wait times and brief doctor visits, you may feel underwhelmed and apprehensive about the quality of care your family receives. Is traditional medicine sustainable? Will it provide premium care amid health emergencies or should a serious health issue arise? These questions may leave you searching for more comprehensive and reliable solutions. Luckily, a new approach to healthcare called concierge medicine is an option for your family. Concierge family doctors provide high-quality care through a membership-based model that allows them to remove the many challenges of the traditional health care system. Learn how concierge physicians provide quality medicine for family health care needs. The Challenge of Providing Health Care for Families Often, practices are overbooked, serving more families than they can handle and scheduling months in advance to provide care. These scheduling difficulties make it challenging to receive medical care the moment you need it. Even during your appointment, a doctor’s hectic schedule often limits their time with each patient. You and your family then lack the attention and demeanor you desire in a medical setting. In addition to time constraints, the referral system in traditional medicine leads to hurdles in specialty care. Specific health needs require expert attention right away. You don’t have time to waste. Yet needing a specialist can lead to more phone calls, appointments, and wait times. Amid your scramble for care, family physician access comes with unpredictable costs for care that’s far from high-quality. Families can face an array of challenges when it comes to health care. Your child might strike a fever at 2 a.m. on a Saturday. Your mother might fall down the stairs in her house all alone while you’re across the country. These medical conditions and emergencies require timely care that traditional medical practices typically don’t provide. The Solutions and Benefits of Concierge Medicine for Your Family The good news is that families have alternatives to standard medical practices that can help them overcome the challenges. Concierge medicine helps you receive quality health care for your entire family — anytime, anywhere. This type of medicine is private and membership-based, and physicians have a limited number of patients they care for. This limit allows doctors to provide premium care and comfort for every health need. Families continue to turn to concierge medicine for health care because of the many advantages over traditional options. Typically a concierge medical practice would provide you with direct access to a primary care physician. This concierge physician is typically a local individual practice with standard business hours. The membership benefits that may come with a traditional concierge practice include: Minimal wait times — With a smaller patient base, a concierge doctor can guarantee better availability of appointments. They can typically offer same or next day appointments. More time with your doctor — Concierge doctors can dedicate more time to each patient during a visit as they do not rely on medical billing to drive revenue, so they can be intentional about controlling volume and experience. Direct physician access — With a more personalized relationship, concierge physicians will often provide their direct numbers for quick questions or prescription refills. After-hours services — While not a guarantee, some concierge doctors may also offer virtual visits 24/7 or be open to making a house call visit on a case by case basis. Sollis Health: Where Medicine Meets Hospitality Sollis understands how traditional health care fails to meet your needs. Doctors and care professionals have unfortunately had to deprioritize their patients in order to navigate mounting structural weaknesses and administrative hurdles. Traditional medicine doesn’t cater to you as it should — Sollis does. Their services reinvent the medical experience and make health care about providing expert, reliable care for you and your family. Sollis was created to provide a differentiated concierge medical experience. It delivers on all of the tenets of traditional concierge medicine, but then goes a step further offering additional on-site capabilities and concierge services to offer a more comprehensive approach to your care. With multiple locations across the country, available 24/7-365, and equipped with a state-of-the-art lab and advanced radiology suite on-site – Sollis is here for your family to connect all of the dots when it comes to your medical needs. Sollis Health members have unlimited access to its concierge medicine services. We provide convenient, on-demand care for every stage of life, whether your family needs pediatric or geriatric support and for every type of medical need — from common illnesses to emergencies, and everything in between. Care at any time: Sollis offers 24/7 access to care whenever and wherever you need it through its private centers, as well as virtual visits available via phone, text or video chat. You can rest easy knowing that your family will be cared for by professionals dedicated to you. Personalized and patient-first care: In traditional practices, you might get three to four minutes with your doctor, which is hardly enough time to discuss everything you might want or need to. As a member of Sollis Health, your doctor will have fewer patients, allowing them to provide attentive care that puts your needs first. Your physician will help you understand what’s necessary for your treatment and create a plan of action with you. Appointments on your schedule: With concierge medicine, you can schedule appointments whenever you need them. With 24/7 access to care, you’ll receive attention immediately. You can get access to prompt test results from on-site labs and see a specialist within a matter of days, maybe even minutes. Plus, request a house call via phone or email, and a medical provider will come to you. Walk-ins with no wait times: Traditional doctor’s offices may turn away walk-ins or have long wait times. You could potentially wait in a conventional clinic or an ER for hours. One of the most significant benefits of a Sollis membership is that you don’t even need an appointment – you can walk in whenever you need care without worrying about long wait times. You’ll be seen by a doctor immediately, addressing any of your medical concerns and offering expedited access to any required follow-up treatment. On-site lab & advanced imaging – Premium care from Sollis also includes advanced imaging services at our flagship centers — an exclusive amenity. Our facilities include MRI, CT, ultrasound and X-ray machines for private, convenient imaging. Our imaging solutions are available for preventative and reactive screenings.

Sollis has an entire team dedicated to care coordination and member advocacy to ensure you receive the continuing support you and your loved ones need. From securing expedited specialist appointments in days instead of weeks, to helping navigate administrative challenges or ensuring VIP services during a hospital visit – it’s like having a doctor in your family, standing by you at every turn.

Emergency rooms can have waiting times over an hour or even longer in highly populated cities.
