f.a.q.'s > All Questions > Why do some concierge medical practices charge much higher annual fees?

Some of these practices include an “executive physical” and possibly also multiple tests in the annual fee (see related questions below).

Some of these physicians will accompany their patients to specialist visits or go to a patient’s workplace to provide care, and this requires having a much more limited number of patients so that a higher annual fee is required to make it financially viable. I do not do either of these things but will be very involved in discussing a patient’s care with any specialist that may be involved.
