Edmee Rodriguez, M.D., and her team are dedicated to providing comprehensive medical care and weight-loss support through a concierge model. Concierge medicine is a unique approach that offers primary care services at a fixed yearly fee, ensuring patients have easy access to personalized care and attention.
One of the significant advantages of the concierge model offered by Dr. Rodriguez is the direct access patients have to her. Unlike traditional healthcare practices where patients often face long wait times and limited appointment availability, the concierge model allows patients to have direct contact with Dr. Rodriguez whenever they need it. This means that patients can reach out to her 24 hours a day, seven days a week, even for urgent health concerns. This accessibility ensures that patients can receive prompt medical attention and guidance, enhancing their overall healthcare experience.
Dr. Rodriguez's team includes a Pharmacist Clinician who plays a crucial role in optimizing medication management. The Pharmacist Clinician offers services such as same-day prescription refills, prompt prior authorizations, drug-to-drug interaction assessments, medication side-effect education, and chronic disease management support. Having a dedicated Pharmacist Clinician on the team helps streamline medication-related processes, ensuring patients have timely access to their prescriptions and minimizing any potential risks associated with drug interactions or side effects. This collaborative approach between the physician and the Pharmacist Clinician promotes comprehensive and safe care.
Additionally, Dr. Rodriguez's team includes a registered nurse who provides home visits. Home visits can be especially beneficial for patients who have mobility issues, chronic illnesses, or difficulty accessing healthcare facilities. The registered nurse can assess patients' health conditions, provide necessary treatments, administer medications, and offer ongoing support in the comfort of their own homes. This service helps improve convenience and patient satisfaction while ensuring continuity of care.
