If you’ve been under the care of a primary care physician, you likely have certain expectations when visiting a conventional medical practice in terms of service, standard procedures, and actual time spent with a doctor. However, if you haven’t been to a PCP who offers concierge medicine, you might wonder if the experience is any different from that with a regular PCP.
Here at the office of Dr. Robert Lending in Tucson, Arizona, we offer concierge medicine— a membership-based care delivery model through which Dr. Lending provides his patients 24/7 access to his undivided time and attention.
Here’s some more information about Dr. Lending’s concierge medicine service to help set your expectations for your visit with him.
Comprehensive and Convenient Care
Dr. Robert E. Lending— a board-certified internal medicine physician specializing in clinical lipidology (the specialty dedicated to the treatment and prevention of cholesterol problems)— has spent his entire career attending to the healthcare needs of the adult residents of Tucson and all of its neighboring areas.
Dr. Lending provides comprehensive medical care for the full range of health problems affecting adults of all age groups, and he strives to treat matters in the office, so you don’t have to drive around town to get the care that you need. As a concierge medicine physician, he provides a wide range of standard healthcare services—including wellness exams, acute injury treatment, vaccinations, among many others— without the long wait times.
Seamless Care Coordination
If Dr. Lending determines that your medical condition warrants specialized care, he will gladly assist you in scheduling your visit with your specialist. Dr. Lending will work in tandem with your specialist to efficiently assess the entire picture of your health and to devise a suitable treatment plan. This translates into a favorable treatment outcome and a positive overall experience for you.
More Time with Dr. Lending Means Better Health Management
Dr. Lending understands the frustration that stems from feeling your doctor is in too big of a hurry—from having to rapidly rehash your symptoms and relay every detail within a measly 10-minute visit.
Through concierge primary care, you get at least half-hour for each of your appointments with Dr. Lending, just enough time to comfortably discuss all of your health concerns with him. With more time at his disposal, Dr. Lending is better able to deliver efficient care and devise the most effective strategies to guide you along the path to optimal health and well-being.
