Concierge care is a term that describes personalized services that are provided outside of the traditional office setting. Concierge care can be used not only for for acute injuries and chronic pain, but increased athletic performance, quicker recovery, increased energy and focus, and stress management. That is why this is often a way of life for executives, politicians, professional athletes and really anyone who has high demands and little time.
Think of concierge appointments the as the doctor coming to you with "all of the tools in her too box" like as chiropractic care, acupuncture, Reiki, corrective exercise instruction, yoga instruction, consultation regarding diet and nutrition, and soft tissue work. You will also still have access to referrals for imaging, labs, and to other specialists. Some of the benefits of concierge care are:
- availability at non-traditional appointment times
- comprehensive services for one set fee
- a more private setting
- continuity of care (with other providers such as your doula, massage therapist, personal trainer, etc.)
- private residences
- sporting events
- performance venues
- home births
Common Questions About Concierge Care
Will my insurance pay for my services when I do concierge care?
Concierge care is a self pay service. An average session will typically run 60-90 minutes and costs $200. Cash, check, and credit cards as well as health savings accounts are some of the options for payment.
Is massage therapy offered?
No. Dr. McCleary is not a licensed massage therapist (LMT) so massage therapy is not an offered service. She is trained in various soft tissue techniques to address a certain area of dysfunction including acupressure, cupping, trigger point release, stretching techniques, active release, and instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization. If traditional massage therapy is something an individual is interested in, a referral may be provided to an LMT that will do "out calls".
Can anyone get concierge care?
Yes and no. Concierge care is not limited to the "rich and famous" although treatment outside of the clinical setting is not always appropriate. Dr. McCleary will be the only one that can determine if she will be willing to take on an individual for concierge care.
