What is Concierge Medicine?

In a concierge (or membership) medical practice, the doctor makes a commitment to limit the number of patients to ensure adequate time and availability for each patient, and to provide an enhanced level of care. This level of care promotes wellness as we age and has been proven to be one of the most effective models for maintaining health.

Extended, unrushed visits enable physicians to spend meaningful time with patients, build relationships, and provide more comprehensive, proactive care than in traditional practices. If you do become ill—and we recognize that health is unpredictable—you will have peace of mind knowing that the doctor who knows you best will be available when needed. A call to my office or cell phone after hours can frequently prevent a trip to the emergency room or urgent care clinic. To make this possible, the patient pays an annual fee.


“Concierge medicine gives us time to restore what matters most. Sufficient time to discuss health is crucial, but also time to build relationships based on empathy, trust and compassion. It is my mission to provide this level of care to each and every patient.”
-Dr. DuBose

"My wife and I have been very pleased with the attention and care received since we joined Dr. DuBose’s practice. We feel so much more relaxed and free to discuss health matters that we used to view as too minimal in importance to justify the time. We are now enjoying the confidence of having all maters of our health considered under our overall plan of treatment. We are more than pleased with the care we receive from Dr. DuBose."

"Dr. Dubose and his superb team of caring professionals are top tier. Dr. Dubose maintains up to date medical knowledge and such a deep compassion for his patients and time and again he has stepped up for me and my family. Before my mother died, Dr. Dubose was a tireless advocate for her and provided her the most excellent care and kindness. After she died, I became his patient, in the concierge practice. I feel like I now had a dedicated advocate for my wellbeing. I am very thankful for Dr. Dubose and his caring staff Meredith, Crystal and Sabrina. All the wonderful people, including Ashley at the front desk. So very welcoming. This is a wonderful practice!"
