Why do doctors offer concierge medicine?

The current medical system is a massive bureaucracy in which insurance companies, the pharmaceutical industry, and the government interfere with the doctor-patient relationship. Now, many physicians are being bought out by large hospital conglomerates and for-profit corporate entities where the bottom line is financial gain for the company, their CEO’s, and shareholders.

Often, physicians are forced to see over 30 patients per day, resulting in shorter, impersonal visits. The physician spends more time documenting in the electronic medical record rather than spending quality face-to-face time, getting to know their patients, and focusing on the patient and their concerns.

Dr. Steslow has become increasingly frustrated with this type of conveyor-belt medical care. He wants to change the focus and bring it back to you, the patient.
