Personalized healthcare is growing more rapidly than ever. Hoag Concierge Medicine stands out with its commitment to providing an elevated and individualized experience for its members. Let’s explore the six-step process that defines how concierge medicine works at Hoag, offering a glimpse into the unique and comprehensive approach that sets it apart.
What is Concierge Medicine?
Concierge medicine evolved in the mid-90s in response to dissatisfaction with conventional healthcare. Physicians sought to provide enhanced, personalized care by limiting patient loads through a subscription-based model. The concept gained traction in the early 2000s, offering individuals exclusive access to physicians for a membership fee, emphasizing quality over quantity, and providing a more intimate doctor-patient relationship.
How Does Concierge Medicine Work?
Concierge medicine works by prioritizing the patient, providing a transformative healthcare experience beyond traditional medical services. It revolutionizes healthcare by offering personalized, comprehensive services beyond traditional healthcare. Patients pay a membership fee for exclusive access to a primary care physician, creating deeper doctor-patient relationships. Concierge medicine prioritizes preventive care, extended appointment times, and increased accessibility, ensuring a more tailored and proactive approach to well-being. This approach emphasizes individualized attention, providing a transformative healthcare experience beyond traditional medical services.
Step 1: Schedule A New Patient Consultation and Choose Your Membership Tier
At the heart of the Hoag Concierge Medicine experience is the flexibility to choose a membership tier that aligns with your specific healthcare needs. Whether it’s our Signature, Premier, or Hoag Executive Physical membership, each option is designed to cater to diverse preferences and requirements. Family enrollment is also available with custom pricing. Notably, the Hoag Executive Physical accommodates those who wish to retain their existing primary care provider while still benefiting from comprehensive services, including in-house specialty offerings like acupuncture, personal training sessions, and cosmetic injections.
Step 2: Match With A Physician
Personalized healthcare thrives on strong patient-physician relationships. Hoag Concierge Medicine takes great care in matching each member to the best top-ranked Hoag physician for their needs.

Step 3: Complete The Comprehensive Wellness Exam
Hoag Concierge Medicine’s cornerstone is the Comprehensive Wellness Exam, a detailed process that goes beyond the standard check-up. This thorough examination includes personalized components such as an Annual Comprehensive Exam, Personalized Comprehensive Blood Analysis, Nutrition Consultation, Fitness Evaluation, Customized Care Plan, Action Plan, and Cancer Screening. The aim is to understand each patient on a detailed level, allowing for a tailored treatment plan and an overall care approach.
Step 4: Review Results And A Personal Health Plan
Following the Comprehensive Wellness Exam, the collaborative model of care ensures that members actively participate in their health management. Results are meticulously reviewed with the physician, and a personalized care plan is crafted to address specific needs and goals. This step empowers individuals to take control of their health, fostering a sense of ownership and accountability.
