Concierge medicine (also known as retainer medicine) is a relationship between a patient and a primary care physician in which the patient pays an annual fee or retainer. This may or may not be in addition to other charges. In exchange for the retainer, doctors provide enhanced care, including principally a commitment to limit patient loads to ensure adequate time and availability for each patient.
Dr. Hrach practices within this concierge or membership model. In this model, patients pay an annual fee for all services provided by our office. There is no additional out of pocket expense to our office. This program, called the Barbara Hrach MD – ExtraCare program, includes benefits such as: same day access to your doctor; immediate communication with the doctor via cell phone, text messaging, or email; unlimited office visits with no co-pay; little or no waiting time in the office; focus on preventive care; unhurried atmosphere; video appointments when appropriate; home visits when appropriate and immediate prescription refills. Dr. Hrach has limited her practice size to no more than 400 patients in order to provide the individual attention and focus on detail that each patient deserves.
