Concierge Care With Dr. Keith Sadel.
If you’ve needed a doctor or medical practitioner over the last decade or so, you may have found yourself in an office, waiting 30-60 minutes to be seen for your appointment. Then when brought in for the doctor’s appointment, you may have found yourself rushed and unheard. This scenario appears to be a growing crisis in medicine. Doctors are overworked, overbooked, and struggling to get reimbursed from insurance companies. This puts the doctor and patient in a tough spot.
In the late ‘90s, a new concept came into the medical community – Concierge Medicine, aka Membership Medicine. According to Web MD, One of the most popular reasons to consider a concierge doctor is quicker access to your physician. Same-day appointments and direct email and phone contact with your concierge doctor mean speedier access to care.
Dr. Keith Sadel, a practicing internist in Southampton, Pa., saw the lack of time and quality he could give his patients. A true believer in medicine and relationships., Dr. Sadel looked into the Concierge Medicine model and began to adapt this in his Bucks County practice.
“I see only positives with this model. I was seeing 25-30 patients a day with the traditional insurance model. I was running behind for all of them, barely able to grasp what the client needed, to now being proactive and truly knowing my clients. They come in 3-4 times a year for wellness visits. This time allows me to learn their emotional/physical needsand tendencies, collect all the preventative measures and keep them well,” says Sadel.
Dr. Keith has been practicing for approxiamately 22 years. He and his wife Vivi, have been married for 28 years. They have two sons, Ben & Sid and a dog named Howard. They reside in Holland, PA. and they adore Bucks County. They have such a beautiful connection with their staff and patients. The difference between them is TIME and ACCESS.
Here’s how it works: You pay a yearly amount per person or a family rate. This ensures you are part of the program. You then receive all the benefits. See www. preservationhealth.com for details. “The problem today is we are reactive in medicine; the goal is to be proactive (preventative). This can be achieved through nutrition, daily stress relief practices, alternative treatments, and exercise,” stresses Dr. Sadel. His office is located at 715 Cherry Lane, 2nd Floor, in Southampton, PA. You can follow his IG page @ drkeithsadelpreservationhealth for updates, facts, and videos explaining more on his practice.
