ABSTRACT
This article reports on so-called boutique or concierge care in medicine. The concept is centered around personalized, preventative medical care. According to the Government Accountability Office, the number of U.S. physicians offering concierge or boutique care grew from zero to almost 120 from 2000-2004. The annual fee that patients pay for this service ranges from $60-15,000 and allows patients to skip waiting around in waiting rooms and also allows their doctors to not feel rushed during appointments.
