Aaron Carroll Endorses Concierge Medicine – Sort Of.

1 Mins read

Moreover, I’ve been thinking about my parents. They live thousands of miles away, and I can’t do for them what I could do if they lived close by. But since they’ve paid for concierge care, I know they can get a same day appointment when they need to. I know their doctor answers their phone calls quickly. I know that if they need something, they will get it.

I wish everyone could have such service, but it’s not possible in today’s health care system. We don’t have enough doctors. It’s why we are seeing retail clinics pop up. And it’s why concierge medicine is gaining steam.

We have two choices. We can make it so that everyone can get really timely care, or we can expect the market to find ways for those who can pay extra to get it preferentially. And while I find the latter less preferable, as long as I continue to help those closest to me get better access, I can’t fault others for trying to do the same.
