Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) June 17, 2013
Dallas-based physician Dr. Connie Casad has become the first gynecologist in the nation to offer the hybrid concierge model from Concierge Choice Physicians. Dr. Casad chose the hybrid model to offer her patients a wider variety of options and to ensure those who wanted enhanced services and a greater emphasis on prevention and wellness had that option. The new approach gives choices to patients who want a concierge-style of medicine, but doesn't force the physician's longtime patients to find a new physician.
With 25 years of experience, Dr. Casad constantly strives to stay abreast and ahead of the latest treatment options seeking ongoing medical training and education to serve her patients.
Unlike traditional full model concierge programs, hybrid models merge traditional and concierge programs and allow physicians to continue to care for all their patients, including those with Medicare or other government or private insurance programs. In a typical program, about three to eight percent of patients choose to join the concierge program and the rest stay with the practice as before. The approach helps to keep good physicians in practice, doesn’t exacerbate physician shortages and does not disenfranchise patients.
“Like a lot of my patients, I struggled with issues related to my health and well-being as I aged,” said Dr. Casad. “I felt like the current healthcare model didn’t provide a system that could provide patients with what they wanted and needed. I conducted considerable research and I believe that the concierge model gives the best option possible for my patients who want to take charge of their health and who are interested in prevention and wellness.”
The hybrid concierge model provides medical services not covered by patients’ traditional insurance. For a modest fee, equal to the cost of a daily latte from a local coffee shop, concierge patients receive comprehensive preventative care, convenient scheduling, less waiting time, direct access to their physician through private phone lines and email, and other non-covered personalized services.
Dr. Casad offers a unique array of health services including prevention, wellness, bio-identical hormone treatment, aesthetics and gynecologic surgical procedures. She will also help to coordinate all specialist care and provide direct care coordination to her hospitalized patients. Children up to age 25 are covered under their parents’ program. The program is open to current and prospective patients.
Dr. Casad, whose practice is based in Dallas, Texas, is board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology. For more information on Dr. Casad and her practice, please call (972) 566-7744 or visit http://www.conniecasadmd.com.
