Did you know that, in 2022, the average time between making a call and seeing a doctor in the United States was 26 days, forcing people who need immediate attention to go to emergency rooms and urgent care clinics?
Now, imagine a world where you can contact a medical center and get an appointment, when needed, with a team who already understands your issues and goals. That world exists here at Temecula Medical Group thanks to our concierge medicine.
While our team, which includes Dr. Richard Rawson, Ryan D Rowan, PA-C, and Armanda L Alvarez, FNP-C, feels that our concierge medicine offers limitless benefits, here are five circumstances in which this higher standard of care really shines.
1. High blood pressure and high cholesterol
If you have either high blood pressure or high cholesterol, getting these numbers down is paramount. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, and these two conditions play no small role.
The good news is that both hypertension and high cholesterol levels are reversible, but it doesn’t happen overnight. Rather than waiting a year in between visits with a primary care provider, our concierge team offers ongoing and regular support to lower your blood pressure and bring your cholesterol levels into healthier ranges.
Not only do more than 37 million people in the US have diabetes, but 86 million more are also considered prediabetic. What all these people have in common is that they require more vigilant medical oversight.
If you have diabetes, our concierge team is here when you need it, tracking your numbers, monitoring for complications, and providing the care you need to best manage this chronic disease.
Chronic migraines can be very frustrating — the headaches can be unpredictable, and treatments vary from one person to the next. As a result, migraines can seriously impact your life, preventing you from functioning normally. In fact, it’s the sixth most disabling disease worldwide.
Through our concierge care, we can track the patterns of your migraines and find a treatment program that works best for you, allowing you to lead a normal life.
4. Asthma and allergies
If you consider that 50 million people have allergies in the US, the odds are good that you or a family member is part of this group. Additionally, 8% of adults and 6.5% of children in this country have asthma.
Whether it’s asthma, allergies, or both, you require far more than an annual visit with a doctor. Through our concierge care, you can access our medical team whenever you need us to address your ongoing allergy and asthma care needs. We’re here to help you manage these chronic conditions, from medications to managing triggers.
5. Minor injuries
You or a family member twists an ankle, gets burned or cut, or falls hard on your arm, and you suspect a fracture. Whatever the issue, our concierge team is on call to handle most of your everyday and minor injuries, saving you a trip to a crowded emergency room.
There’s no end to the benefits of personalized and prompt care that we offer through concierge medicine. To learn more about becoming a valued concierge member, please contact us at our Temecula, California, office.
