Concierge Medicine

Concierge Medicine, Boutique Medicine and Direct Medicine are terms used to describe medical practices whereby patients are able to have more direct access to their physicians and do so without the rush of the typical high volume primary care practice.

Patients who choose a concierge practice are concerned about their health care and are very interested in preventing problems in addition to optimizing the care for ongoing conditions. A cornerstone to the practice is an annual comprehensive review of medical and family histories, lifestyle practices and screening tests to allow you to develop with your physician your personal wellness plan. This comprehensive evaluation and wellness plan typically takes one and one-half hours.

Patients electing Dr. Schwager’s concierge practice receive a private office phone number for appointments and messages and Dr. Schwager’s direct number for urgent issues after regular business hours. Routine appointments are scheduled for 30 minutes rather than the 10-15 minutes allotted in a typical practice.

Dr. Schwager works with Concierge Choice Physicians. For additional information about concierge medicine and Concierge Choice Physicians, visit
