DALLAS, Sept. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- With the changes in healthcare, more people are seeking out a higher level of service when it comes to their primary care provider. Not only has executive-style physical exams become more popular, but so has the concierge component. "While we are seeing an uptick in high level female executives, this is not the only reason for our grown. Many females have had enough of traditional medicine and have opted for a solution that better fits their lifestyle and the lifestyle of their family," says Judy Gaman, CEO of Executive Medicine of Texas.
With the introduction of the Affordable Care Act, waiting rooms have become crowded and average appointment times have gone from days to weeks. "For those who are looking to be proactive with their health, concierge medicine just makes more sense," says J. Mark Anderson, MD, founding partner at Executive Medicine of Texas. "The ACA has some benefits when it comes to covering healthcare for those who would otherwise not have any. The problem is access and time. There aren't enough primary care physicians or enough time in the overcrowded schedules to dig deep and really be proactive in the traditional healthcare model."
The type of healthcare that's delivered with an executive physical is different. The patient stays at the office for at least a half-day and at the end has a clear roadmap for how to have more energy and become as healthy as possible. "The concierge component takes the exam to the next level," states Walter Gaman, MD, the other founder of Executive Medicine of Texas. "This low volume, high level of service also means setting a cap on the number of patients each physician can see, otherwise luxury medicine loses its luster. The only solution is to add more physicians in response to the growth."
Executive Medicine of Texas is no stranger to growth, in-fact, they are going through their third physical expansion and adding another physician. Much like when they added their last physician, Elizabeth Cox, MD, they took their time, scouring the country for just the right fit. According to their CEO, Erin Donaldson, DO will start in September. "Not only is Dr. Donaldson brilliant, she lives everything we teach our patients. She's active and healthy, she doesn't just talk the talk, she walks the walk."
Donaldson is relocating from Denver, Colorado and is a graduated from the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine. She also completed her Family Medicine residency at Methodist Charlton Medical Center. In addition to extensive hospital work, Donaldson has been quite active with medical mission trips in both Honduras and Guatemala. Dr. Donaldson explains, "Health is more than the absence of disease, and preventative medicine is an incredible opportunity to help my patients expand to a mindset of embracing their strength and truly thrive. I am thrilled to be a part of Executive Medicine of Texas, and to be joining a community which empowers patients to live their healthiest lives."
Executive Medicine of Texas is now accepting physical exam and age management appointments for Dr. Donaldson for on or after September 30, 2019. Concierge memberships will available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
