Members Can Book Same Day Appointments At Concierge Medicine Practice in Chicago

by PRC Agency PR

Dedication Health, a concierge medicine practice in Chicago, offers their patients the benefit of scheduling same day appointments. Americans can get same-day service in nearly every industry, but that kind of prompt action has not always been available in healthcare outside of emergencies. A same day appointment allows the patient to see their doctor on the same day rather than needing to schedule days or weeks in advance, or go to a hospital emergency room or urgent care clinic which can be costly.

Appointment wait times are on the rise. A study conducted by Merritt Hawkins concluded that the wait time to get into see a physician has been slowly ticking upward the past decade, reaching an all-time high of 24 days. Patients are waiting an average of 24 days to schedule an appointment with a doctor, according to a study of commonly used specialty physicians in 15 major U.S. cities.

The time to schedule an appointment has jumped 30% in 15 U.S. metropolitan areas from 18.5 days in 2014. “Physician appointment wait times are the longest they have been since we began conducting the survey,” said Mark Smith, president of Merritt Hawkins. “Finding a physician who can see you today, or three weeks from today, can be a challenge, even in large urban areas where there is a relatively robust supply of doctors.”

Due to Dedication Health’s reserved patient count, patients have the ability to contact their physician at any time and schedule same day appointments as needed. Members can be assured that their healthcare issues will be addressed efficiently and effectively no matter where or when they occur. The concierge medicine doctors at Dedication Health are board-certified physicians specializing in internal medicine, geriatrics, rheumatology, pulmonary, critical care, and travel medicine.

In a concierge medicine practice, the physician limits the number of patients in his practice and offers exclusive services and benefits including same day appointments and 24/7 access to a physician for a reasonable fee. Concierge medicine gives physicians the opportunity to be fairly compensated for their commitment and service and allows physicians to continue to have meaningful personal relationships with their patients.

Dedication Health is a concierge medicine practice in Chicago offering industry-leading medical care and a suite of best-in-class benefits and concierge medicine services. To find a concierge doctor in Chicago, Dedication Health.
