We all know that seeing your primary care physician can be a miserable experience—and seeing a specialist or going to the ER can be even worse. You miss work, waste time waiting, spend too much money, and often leave at the end no wiser and feeling no better than you did at the beginning. What’s wrong with modern healthcare? Well, for starters…
Patients wait an average of 24 days to spend 40 minutes in a waiting room to get 15 minutes with their primary care physician.
Insurance premiums are increasing by at least 9% per year for individuals and businesses. Unfortunately, out-of-pocket costs are also rising.
A typical primary care physician cares for between 2,500 and 4,000 patients. Eighty-six percent of your after-hours calls are answered by a provider who doesn’t know you personally.
