Concierge Medicine FAQ’s

The following are frequently asked questions about Concierge Medicine:

In an effort to better serve his patients, Dr. Gaglione has created a Concierge Medical Services Practice. Concierge Medicine is perfect for individuals and families who are looking for a closer, more direct relationship with their primary care physician. Dr. Gaglione now offers this service because he wants to help his patients live healthier lives.
If you have recognized greater difficulty in access to your physician and felt a decrease in overall efficiency or effectiveness of care, then you will be pleased with the level of care you will receive with a concierge practice.

The ability to have improved access to appointments and communication with your doctor and knowing that your physician is better able to focus on your needs is worth a reasonable financial commitment. In fact most patients who become members of a concierge practice feel that the benefits far outweigh the costs and there are few who decide to return to a “traditional” type practice after they experience it.

Dr. Gaglione is a family physician who believes the most important aspect in delivering excellent medical care is the ability and willingness to take time with patients, listen to them and establish a solid relationship based on mutual respect.

No. Concierge medical practices do not take the place of health insurance coverage. The fee covers the membership for The Center for Comprehensive Medicine and direct access to Dr. Gaglione. Insurance is still required since you will need coverage for urgent care, hospital visits, and immunizations. As a patient of The Center for Comprehensive Medicine, you will be responsible for any copayments, deductibles, etc. required by their insurance carrier for such visits.
You may be able to apply your funds towards the concierge fee and as such may be tax deductible, however, we advise you to consult with your accountant.

Dr. Gaglione has developed the concept of “mood instability” as an integral component of medical diagnosis and treatment. Many refer to mood “disorders” but Dr. Gaglione likes to consider himself an expert in the field of treating the physiologic aspects of brain chemistry that affects moods.

Dr. Gaglione has developed an understanding of the great care and deliberation required in the diagnosis of ‘mood disorders’ and a profound respect for the importance of prescribing correct treatment regimens when trying to ‘normalize’ or stabilize our most important and complex organ – the brain.
