6 Statistics on Concierge and Direct Pay Physician Practices
recently released data from surveys of concierge medicine and direct pay primary care physicians conducted December 2009 through December 2012.
Survey questions pertained to practice viability, patient satisfaction, business strategies, revenues and more. The following are six statistics from analysis of the surveys:
• Roughly 70 percent of U.S. concierge medicine and direct pay primary care physicians are internal medicine specialists. Family practice is the second most popular concierge medicine specialty.
• The typical concierge physician is between 40 and 59 years of age.
• Most concierge and direct pay physicians treat six to eight patients each day.
• The average annual compensation for a concierge physician ranges from $100,000 to $300,000.
• 62 percent of concierge and direct pay medical offices employ one or two people.
• 71 percent of concierge and direct pay physicians report they are doing "better" financially than in 2008.
Correction: an earlier version of this article incorrectly identified the Concierge Medicine Research Collective as the Concierge Medicine Research Collaborative. We regret this error.
