Have you experienced frustration waiting weeks or months for an appointment with an orthopedic specialist, only to be seen and treated by a physician assistant or ancillary staff?
Concierge Medicine is a rather recent term/model where physicians can provide more personalized care for their patients. For the majority of patients in the United States, medical care is dictated by the business aspect of medicine including the confines of insurance company policies, rules/regulations to bring business (which frequently includes high volume) and make profits in the healthcare system. Most medical practices/physicians are owned by giant corporations (including health insurance companies) or hospital groups, leaving little autonomy for doctors. A Concierge Medical practice allows the physician autonomy to provide quality, one-on-one care to help patients heal well without the confines of high volume, profit margins or “bottom line” mentality often seen in large corporations. Although Concierge Medical practices usually require an investment in some higher up front out of pocket costs, the benefits of the quality of care that patients receive are significant and invaluable.
Therefore, when seeking care at a Concierge Medicine Hand and Upper Extremity Orthopedic Specialist Office like at Michele Y. Yoon, M.D., PLLC, you can expect:
- More personalized access to your treating physician, Dr. Michele Y. Yoon, without being routed through other ancillary healthcare providers such as physicians assistants or nurse practitioners

- Little to no wait time for your scheduled appointment(s) in the Chicago Northwest Suburbs
- Review of all examinations/studies with the hand and upper extremity orthopedic specialist, Dr. Michele Y. Yoon, to assist in determining your best treatment plan
