Dr. Caitlin Prickett realized that the level of care she wanted to provide her patients as a board-certified internal medicine physician would best be achieved through establishing a concierge medical practice. In December, she opened Concierge Medicine of Boca Raton offering highly personalized care, managing chronic conditions, treating new problems, focusing on preventive medicine, and maintaining overall health and wellness. She does this without the constraints of insurance. “I work for the patient, not the insurance company.”
“I’m able to spend more time with my patients. Our visits are 30-60 minutes or longer, if needed. My patient panel is around 600, not in the thousands, so my patients and I get to know each other. I am completely accessible 24/7; patients can always reach me on my personal cell phone, by email or with a telehealth visit,” she says.
Prickett emphasizes the benefits that concierge membership patients receive with a comprehensive annual physical and wellness visit, and as many in-office, followup or urgent visits, as needed. In-house lab work with an on-site pharmacy add to the convenient offerings, as well as revolutionary early cancer detection tests and genetic screenings. Prickett has additional training in women’s health and is a member of the North American Menopause Society.
“I want my practice to feel like a welcoming home for my patients’ medical needs. As an on-staff physician at Boca Raton Regional Hospital, when my patients are admitted, I will be there as well to help coordinate their care,” she says. “I am their partner in health.”
