Get the Best Concierge Medicine in Newton, MA

Have you ever found yourself waiting weeks to see your doctor, only to spend most of your time in the waiting room? Or maybe recent health symptoms have emerged, and you’re anxious to get your doctor’s opinion and guidance on how to proceed.

 

By the time you finally get in to see your doctor, you barely get any time to chat about what’s on your mind. Maybe you even have to answer questions that your doctor should know about you by now.

 

Unfortunately, most of us walk away from the doctor’s office feeling more discouraged or frustrated than when we entered. As functional medicine doctors, this makes us want to rip out our hair. There’s gotta be a better way to help our patients!

 

Enter concierge medicine in Newton, MA. This is, at last, the type of healthcare we’ve been looking for—and you deserve. 

 

What is Concierge Medicine?

Concierge medicine is a response to the flaws of modern medicine. Most of us struggle to get appointments with our doctors, and we spend most of our precious visit time in a germ-infested waiting room. (The very thought makes us shudder.) If a patient has a minor question or concern post-visit, it’s even harder to get back in touch with the doctor. Some patients even ignore symptoms altogether because they don’t want to go through the hassle of getting back in to see their doctor. 

 

It’s impossible to build a thriving doctor-patient relationship when you can barely get in to see your doctor and have little communication outside of a rushed appointment. No wonder you haven’t been seeing any results in your health!

 

Concierge medicine seeks to fix all that. A concierge doctor works closely with each patient to assess their personal situation and guide them as they pursue treatment. A concierge patient gets to skip the waiting room, spends long appointments with the doctor, and has 24/7 access outside of the doctor’s office.

 

Example Concierge Medicine Plan

You may be wondering, what’s really in it for me? Is concierge medicine all it’s made out to be? Time to knock your socks off.

 

Our Platinum Concierge plan offers the following benefits for members:

 

  • 24/7 Access to doctors via text, phone, email
  • On-site Acupuncture with Dr. Levitan
  • Visits that last 50% longer than standard
  • Home IVs
  • Execute style physical
  • At home labs
  • At home physician visits 

 

Plus, our Platinum members get access to all the same perks as lower levels of membership, from nutrition evaluation to follow ups with a nurse practitioner. 

 

Five Journeys adopts the functional medicine approach to healthcare. We focus on healing the body from the inside out instead of slapping a metaphorical band-aid on your health problem. This makes a healthy patient-doctor relationship even more crucial. 

 

Because we’re able to get to know each patient’s unique health situation and lifestyle, we end up with fabulous results among our patients.

 

Working with a Concierge Doctor

Traditional healthcare costs a pretty penny and in the long run, it’s not as effective at eradicating illness and disease.

 

If a person experiences pain or symptoms of disease or illness, he or she often can’t get in to see a doctor for weeks. By that time, drastic and expensive measures may need to be taken to get them back to prime health. Even then, most doctors prescribe iffy medications that don’t always help. 

 

With a concierge functional medicine doctor, you can contact us as soon as you start experiencing symptoms—such as chest pain, difficulty sleeping, or even increased anxiety. We’ll make an appointment immediately and get to the bottom of your symptoms before they become something worse.

 

Is Concierge Medicine Right for Me?

Concierge medicine is a worthwhile investment for someone who is able to devote time and money to their health. For example, a person with a chronic illness who needs frequent doctor visits and at-home health guidance will benefit immensely from a concierge physician. 

 

Concierge patients should expect to feel like they’re getting the “best of the best” when it comes to healthcare. If you’re looking for long visits, meticulous attention from physicians, and a personal relationship with your doctor, concierge medicine is the way to go. You should feel like a celebrity every time you see your doctor!

 

At Five Journeys, we work with many patients in a long-term manner. For example, we provide nutrition coaching, help our patients detox from chemicals, and restore gut health. These kinds of health changes often require frequent and consistent doctor visits, which concierge medicine provides in full.
