Typically, a primary care physician in a traditional medical practice will have a patient load ranging from 2,000 to 4,000 patients. That not only eliminates the possibility of any physician quality time, it may also be dangerous to your health: When a doctor has to limit his time with each patient, the important exchange of medical information may not take place, which could result in an incorrect diagnosis, excessive testing or even a missed condition.
Dr. McDonald is dedicated to providing comprehensive and thoughtful care to all of his patients. Over time he has learned that many people desire increased convenience and attention. For these patients he offers a high level of personalized service and physician access in exchange for a reasonable annual retainer. The high level of service is achieved through severe restrictions on the number of patient members in the practice. We do not see thousands of patients so we have the time to spend with you.
This plan is ideal for those individuals and family who:
- Place a high value on their time
- Have a chronic condition that requires regular attention
- Recognize the importance of a closer physician-patient relationship
- Appreciate the easy physician access and extra convenience
- Want a doctor who acts as a true partner in care, directing medical “traffic” to help achieve the highest possible quality of life
When you need to see your Your MD doctor, you will. House calls, too.
As your primary care physician, Dr. McDonald acts as the gateway to all of the other medical services you may need beyond what we provide in our office. Your retainer pays for the easy access to and the convenience of our office. Additional medical services usually require additional charges.
