If you’re searching for a more personal, customized experience in OB/GYN care, concierge medicine might be a good fit. Ashley Papapetrou, DO, of Aphaea Women's Health in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, offers concierge care to women of all ages. This model of practice allows Dr. Papapetrou to spend more time with patients, getting to know them and their specific needs. Book a visit online or by phone today to learn more.
Concierge medical service is a model of practice that seeks to create a more meaningful bond between you and your doctor. Unlike practices where patients are treated like numbers and moved through the office as quickly as possible, concierge care takes a slower, more personable approach.
Dr. Papapetrou built her practice around a concierge model in order to enhance the level of care she provides her patients. Gynecology and obstetrics are incredibly personal and essential areas of health and wellness, and services should be delivered in an unrushed and compassionate manner.
You can receive the same level of care through concierge medicine as you would in a traditional medical practice. The service is membership based, so there is less paperwork and more time spent face-to-face with Dr. Papapetrou.
One reason people choose concierge care is to have improved access to their doctor. Traditional medical practices often embrace a numbers philosophy, taking on as many patients as possible and minimizing the time spent in direct patient care in order to maximize profits.
Concierge care allows you to get to know Dr. Papapetrou and for her to learn more about your women’s health needs, goals, and challenges. If you’re seeking a more personalized health care experience, concierge care might be a good fit.
House calls are also available as part of concierge care. If you feel you would be more comfortable receiving gynecologic or obstetric services in the comfort of your own home, house calls offer the perfect solution.
The membership model of practice allows you to pay a set fee for your routine gynecologic and obstetric care. An annual gynecologic membership covers your well woman exams and diagnostic visits for the full scope of women’s health issues. Coverage includes guidance on birth control or fertility planning or a diagnostic work-up for abnormal bleeding or pelvic pain.
As you prepare for pregnancy and childbirth, an obstetric membership helps you know what to expect in terms of cost. These plans cover routine needs like prenatal care, pregnancy care, and postpartum care. Concierge membership plans are often far less expensive than many people assume.
To explore all that the concierge model of practice has to offer, schedule a one-on-one consultation today. Appointments can be booked online in just moments. You’re also welcome to call and speak with a member of the administrative staff regarding appointment availability.
