Rediscover the personalized touch of healthcare with concierge medicine. Five Journeys in Boston and Newton is redefining your experience by prioritizing the doctor-patient relationship.

Imagine having direct access to your concierge doctor whenever you need them, through 24/7 telehealth or even home visits. Our concierge health care model offers extended appointments, ensuring ample time to discuss your concerns and develop a tailored wellness plan.

However, not many people have tried concierge medicine before. In this article, our health team will explain what concierge medicine entails, how Five Journeys puts our own spin on the practice, and how you can get started as a member. 

For a flat fee each month, you can have priority access to a doctor who knows you and wants to help. Sound good? Let’s get started!

The Basics

Why should anyone search for concierge medicine in the first place? What makes it so special and different from other kinds of healthcare? 

You may associate the term “concierge” with hotels. The concierge waits at the front desk to help you with any problem. They’re available at all hours of the day to help you with your luggage or connect you with events around town. The hotel concierge provides immediate and personal assistance – just like the concierge doctors in Newton. 

Concierge primary care in Boston and Newton also provides exclusive services like acupuncture and in-home IV therapy, exceeding the expectations of traditional healthcare. If you’re ready to take charge of your health and well-being in 2024, explore the benefits of concierge medicine with Five Journeys.

Concierge medicine is perfect for people who want to make strides in their health. They’ll be able to ask their doctor specific questions while also undergoing a number of tests that can determine exactly what’s going on with their health. 

Whether you’re in Boston or Newton, our conveniently located clinics offer the platinum standard of care, where you’re treated as a valued individual, not just another appointment.

If you’re saying, “2024 is my year to optimize my health!” then you’ll want to consider our concierge medicine services in Boston and Newton, MA.

Concierge Medicine & Functional Medicine

What sets Five Journeys apart from other concierge medicine providers is that we also focus on functional medicine. 

Functional medicine targets the root cause of any condition or symptom. For example, you might feel fatigued during the day. Perhaps you’re adding a few pounds as well. Another doctor might recommend melatonin for better sleep or adding more exercise to your weekly routine. All good ideas, but they miss the point. 

What if a hormone imbalance was the source of those issues? Simply managing symptoms will never lead to true relief. Instead, a functional medicine approach will treat the hormone imbalance, thus relieving the symptoms.

Concierge medicine will give you access to this incredible approach to healing. Instead of prescribing a pill, your concierge doctor will recommend natural treatments that address the root cause of your illnesses. It’s the perfect pairing!

Concierge Medicine for Families

Why not offer the same high level of care to your entire family? Imagine if your partner and kids could have 24/7 access to a primary care physician, someone who took the time to learn about their health and created custom wellness plans. Your entire family could experience their healthiest year yet!

When you reach out to ask about concierge medicine in Newton, make sure to tell us about everyone in your household. That way we can provide excellent functional medicine services to everyone you love.
