The following enhanced benefits are included as part of Carolina Concierge Care's annual membership fee:
This allows easy and direct communications for urgent medical problems that occur outside of my regular office hours. I will use my reasonable best efforts to be available to hear from you when you are ill or injured to coordinate your care. However, for emergencies, always call 911 first.
Should you need to be hospitalized, I will make myself available when I can to communicate with you and to serve as an advocate on your behalf, even when you are admitted to a facility at which I do not have privileges or where I am not your attending physician. If you wish, unless hospital policy or protocol does not allow, I will do what I reasonably can to remain involved in your care, including by making courtesy visits and/or communicating with the hospitalists or the other attending physicians who are providing services to you.
If you are acutely ill and unable to come to the office, but not homebound, a house call may be offered at no additional charge beyond an office visit fee. However, the need for each out-of-office visit will be determined on a case-by-case basis, at my discretion.
Whether you are on a brief vacation or living some of the year in a second residence, I am available for consultation. However, if in my judgment you need to be seen by a local physician, I will encourage you to seek medical attention. I will communicate with you directly, as well as with your treating physician as needed, to support the coordination of your care on health issues that may arise.
A staff member from my practice will personally pick up your non-narcotic prescription from a local pharmacy and deliver necessary medication to your home. This service will be determined on a case-by-case basis, at my discretion.
