What is concierge medicine?
Imagine you go to your doctor’s office and are greeted in the waiting room by your personal physician without having to wait. You are personally escorted back to the exam room and there you have all your questions answered without feeling rushed. When you feel something is not right you can pick up the phone and call your doctor’s personal phone so he can talk to you right away. This is the care concierge healthcare services provide.
Why should I join your concierge program?
Preventive medicine specialist Dr. Jacobi believes in preventing heart disease, cancer and other medical conditions before they happen. If you have any chronic medical condition such as diabetes or hypertension, then Dr. Jacobi can work with you to treat your condition using both traditional Western and natural methods. This way you receive the best of modern medical care combined with non-traditional care to work powerfully in achieving your optimal health and well-being.
Unlike many other physicians, before prescribing you another medication, Dr. Jacobi prefers to treat with natural methods.
In contrast to a traditional medical practice, where the average time spent with a medical doctor is 7 1/2 minutes, Dr. Jacobi gives his concierge patients as much time as they need at every visit. He’s able to provide this high quality of care because he limits the number of patients allowed in his practice.
