Concierge Medicine Q&A
What is concierge medicine?
Concierge medicine gives you 24/7 access to your physician. Instead of waiting for several days or more to get an appointment, Coral Gables Executive Physicians offers same-day appointment availability and Saturday appointments, in addition to round-the-clock phone access to your doctor. Traditional doctors typically see patients in 15-minute increments, but concierge medicine practices are truly patient-centered and doctors can spend more time with each patient as needed.
What’s the difference between concierge medicine and primary care?
Doctor’s offices that provide concierge medicine also function as primary care doctors. The main difference is that a concierge medicine practice can spend more time with each patient as they see fewer patients each day. Concierge medicine allows doctors to provide higher-quality care.
At Coral Gables Executive Physicians, the medical team provides comprehensive care as they are internal medicine experts with extensive knowledge of preventive care and the best medical treatments for your condition. Just like primary care, concierge medicine doctors refer you to specialists as needed and coordinate your overall health care.

At Coral Gables Executive Physicians, the board-certified team of doctors provides comprehensive annual physicals to concierge medicine patients that go above and beyond what is included in the traditional health insurance-sponsored physical.
