Concierge Medicine with Drs. Carrie & Hector Cardenas
Carrie & Hector Cardenas, MDs
Our mission in a concierge medicine practice is to educate, collaborate with and ultimately empower our patients to make informed decisions on their healthcare. It’s very much of a partnership, as together we explore how to best treat their medical issues in a way that matches their lifestyle and vision of care. Patients are much more than their diagnosis, and the ability to connect with them in a holistic and very personal way is the way we want to practice, and how everyone deserves to be treated. These relationships have been lost in the rushed, mainstream medical model and we cherish the opportunity to restore them in our concierge medicine practice.
What is Concierge Medicine
Concierge medicine, also known as membership medicine, is a relationship between a patient and a primary care physician in which the patient pays an annual fee or retainer. In exchange for the retainer, doctors provide enhanced care, including principally a commitment to limit patient loads to ensure adequate time and availability for each and every patient.
