L.A. Startup Looks To Extend Concierge Medicine To Surgery
A Los Angeles company is looking to expand the field of concierge medicine to include on-demand surgical care. Prime Surgeons has launched a beta test of its concierge surgery business in L.A. County. The group of 16 surgeons will initially specialize in orthopedic sports, spine surgery, gynecology and robotics procedures. Concierge medicine is a small but growing concept in which doctors, typically in primary care, focus on a smaller, wealthier clientele who pay a membership fee to get on-demand access to their physicians.
