Respected Bend Pediatrician Dr. Jennifer (JB) Warton has opened a new pediatric medical clinic in Northwest Crossing. Bend Kids Personal Pediatrics offers concierge pediatric health care to kids ages birth through the teen years. Bend Kids says by removing the barriers to quality healthcare they deliver exceptional, personal attention that translates into greater satisfaction and better healthcare outcomes and fewer visits to Urgent Care or the ER. Bend Kids is now accepting member families to its practice located.
What is Concierge Healthcare?
Concierge healthcare is a progressive, new approach to health care that parents and doctors alike are embracing thanks to stronger doctor-patient relationships, higher quality of care and affordable cost. Concierge healthcare, or subscription-based healthcare, allows doctors to offer an enhanced suite of services that includes house calls, same-day appointments, 24-hour access to your doctor, preventative health and wellness advice and coordination of specialist care.
Doctors can spend more time with their patients and provide more in-depth, higher quality health care. “In the traditional pediatric model, I had to see so many patients each day that I always felt rushed and ultimately dissatisfied about the length of time I could spend with each family. With the concierge model, I have fewer patients so I am able to spend up to an hour with each family. Plus, we communicate between visits via texts, e-mails, etc. This has allowed me to really get to know each family and child and makes it so much easier to make the correct diagnosis and provide an individualized treatment plan. I never let a family leave my office with unanswered questions. I am so excited about this model and to be able to offer this level of care for families in Bend. I love caring for kids and can’t wait to come to work every day,” says Dr. JB.
How does Concierge Healthcare work?
Patients pay physicians a yearly membership fee for access to all services including those not typically covered by insurance. Services include ample time with the doctor, same-day appointments, immediate cell phone access to the doctor 24/7 and prompt access to specialists and state-of-the-art care.
