What is concierge medicine?
Concierge medicine is an alternate way to get the health care you need. In fact, it’s designed to make it easier for you and your family to get the individualized, committed care you deserve. With traditional health care, you pay your doctor’s office each time you visit them. You would think that would guarantee their attention while you’re there, but many people report feeling rushed in and out of the office, getting no more than a few minutes of face-time with their doctor. That’s because most doctors’ offices have to maintain a patient list of thousands of people to guarantee the income flow they need to stay in practice.
With concierge medicine, you pay a monthly fee that covers all of your visits to Paragon Personal Healthcare. At the same time, this retainer allows Dr. Plute to keep her patient list to a few hundred patients. This makes it possible for her to take more time with each patient she sees, so she can deliver individualized, thorough care.
What are the benefits of concierge medicine?
Obviously, more time with Dr. Plute is a major benefit that allows you to work together toward your personal health goals. But it’s far from the only perk of concierge medicine. Patients at Paragon Personal Healthcare also get:
Same-day or next-day appointments
24/7 direct cell phone access to Dr. Plute
At least 30 minutes with Dr. Plute during each appointment
Convenient, thorough in-office testing
Comprehensive annual physicals
Online medical records
When you choose Paragon Personal Healthcare, you get a health care team committed to every member of your family’s health.

This gives you an opportunity to take a no-commitment appointment with Dr. Plute. During this appointment, you talk with her about your family’s health history and current needs. She can help you determine if concierge medicine is the best choice for your family.
