Publisher's Summary

At a time when many Americans may be seeking alternatives to current health care choices, Dr. Knope offers an option that allows patients to directly contract with healthcare providers for individualized care. Using first-hand accounts and plenty of examples of how concierge medicine works, Knope offers a plan for patients looking to make a change to a medical system that is negotiated between doctor and patient, rather than through insurance and pharmaceutical companies. Concierge medicine as currently practiced offers patients more time with their doctors, a personal relationship with medical providers and their staff, and tailored lifestyle plans that help patients prevent illness and disease before it happens. While some argue that such a system favors those who can afford to pay for such specialized care, Knope shows how it can be made more affordable for more people and how those looking to make the change can find the care they need and want with doctors who are willing to work with them to fashion a healthier style of living even while addressing bigger health issues and concerns.

Good for patients

Good for patients but lacking detail for physicians. I was looking for a more detailed plan and the book was written more generally
