Priority Physicians, the first concierge medical practice in Indiana, is seeking a qualified Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, or Med/Peds Physician to join its Fishers office.
At Priority Physicians, we strive to return primary care medicine to a time when the doctor-patient relationship was a genuine, long-lasting partnership rather than a series of short transactional visits. Our extremely low, capped ratio of 200 adult patients per physician allows us to know every one of our members on a very personal level. Each member’s experience is tailored to their individual circumstances with an overriding focus on preventive care. By avoiding the complications of working with third parties and insurance providers, we are able to prioritize the concerns of our patients and spend the time necessary to fully treat their needs.
It is our endeavor to make sure that every interaction with Priority Physicians is exemplary in terms of the value, quality, and convenience. This is our commitment to our members. One that we hold sacred as we continue to set the gold standard for the delivery of patient-focused healthcare.
