Concierge Medicine Q & A

What is concierge medicine?

Concierge medicine — also called direct primary care (DPC), boutique medicine, or membership medicine — is a medical practice style in which you pay a set fee for medical services and dedicated time with Dr. Jackson. Concierge medicine doesn’t involve health insurance. Instead, you pay a flat monthly or yearly rate for unlimited visits with Dr. Jackson as well as regular access via phone and email when you have questions or concerns about your health.

How does concierge medicine work?

Dr. Jackson is affiliated with MDVIP and provides concierge medical services to men and women who pay a retainer fee for their care. Dr. Jackson limits the number of patients in his concierge practice so that he can dedicate more time and attention to your care, which allows you to have longer and more thorough appointments.

By choosing concierge medicine, you become an active participant in your healthcare and work directly with Dr. Jackson to determine which medical tests or procedures, medications, and lifestyle modifications are best for your needs. Your visits are one-on-one and won’t be rushed so that you can have all of your questions and concerns addressed.

Dr. Jackson enjoys concierge medicine because he can form stronger relationships with his patients and have the time to truly listen to their concerns about their health.
