Why choose Dr. Laurie- (Nurse Practitioner) vs a Concierge Physician?
What can a physician do that a nurse practitioner can’t do?
In the primary care setting, a nurse practitioner can do pretty much everything a physician can do. We can prescribe all tests, labs, medications, short term narcotics, and controlled substances. There are certain forms ARNPs can’t sign, and Dr. Laurie has a collaborating agreement with a local physician who assists in forms that require a physician signature.
Would I get my money back if I moved away, or into a nursing home, or passed away?
It really depends on an individual bases. If I have spent hours and hours with a patient in the first 1 or 2 months, and then they moved away, I would consider a partial refund. If I haven’t really had to do a lot of communication and you moved away, then I most likely would give you a full refund.
I am a healthy young person. What is the advantage of concierge?
You are healthy until you are not. The annual exam and annual lab tests and an individual health goal is certainly worth it. But wouldn’t it be nice to be able to just send me a text message about your sinus infection or rash that you developed, or something easy and get a quick response anytime. Wouldn’t it be nice to not have to even bother going to an urgent care when your physician’s office can’t see you. Wouldn’t it be nice to just get a script called in instead of being seen for a simple infection that you know will be cured with just a simple prescription.
