CA Podiatrist: Higher Quality Foot Care

[By Staff Reporters]

According to an August 2008 report in the trade publication Podiatry Management, Dr. Ivar E. Roth cultivates a successful private practice by keeping his focus on what’s most important: offering his patients exemplary care that’s specifically designed for their lifestyles and issues.

Concierge Medical Business-Model

Roth’s practice method and business model involves attentive consultative appointments, and what he describes as a “concierge” level of care that includes open communication with patients as well as colleagues. His practice is focused on providing the utmost in high-quality, personalized care. The office model is more unique for podiatrists than is this emerging trend for traditional allopathic physicians, because Dr. Roth does not take payment from insurance companies but instead arranges financial compensation from his patients. He believes this model holds him to exceptionally high practice standards.

Of course, the office will file insurance paperwork for patients, but that the provider’s compensation is remitted directly to the patient; according to Lalaena Gonzalez-Figueroa, M.D. News [August 2008]. And so, if the allied healthcare community is embracing concierge medicine – and patients are accepting the model – is it really new-wave anymore; or is it becoming de-rigour? And, what does this say, if anything, about traditional third-party payment models, especially in light of franchise possibilities from companies like MD-VIP, MD-Elite and Transfusion, LLC? Opinions from physicians, osteopaths, podiatrists and optometrists are especially encouraged; please comment.
