Dr. Daniel Devine founded Devine Concierge Medicine with his brother, Dr. Michael, in order to practice a more personal and empathetic level of care. The practice is built on the foundation of a trusting bond between doctor and patient, so read on to learn about Dr. Daniel’s perspective on patient relationships, medicine, and why Devine Concierge Medicine is their solution to a better healthcare experience for patients.
At Devine Concierge Medicine, we pride ourselves on being forward-thinking. We take a personalized, preventive approach to care. A strong physician-patient relationship is at the center of our ethos.
Frequent communication between physician and patient is key to a healthy life. I view communication with my patients as an ongoing conversation in times of good health as well as illness. We know early intervention can prevent small issues from becoming larger problems that may lead to hospitalization and ER visits. Removing barriers to communication is a cornerstone of what we have built with Devine Concierge Medicine.
Focusing on preventive care and healthy aging helps ensure our patients are able to maintain a high quality of life. High quality of life means having the ability to pursue one’s interests without interference from declining health or aging. Our focus on prevention and surveillance of disease processes helps our patients avoid urgent care visits, ER visits, and hospitalizations.
Our practice differs from most other concierge physician practices in that we center our practice around the house call instead of a traditional brick and mortar office. This allows our patients to save valuable time not lost in a waiting room. Patients are more comfortable, further reducing barriers to care.
Equally as important, our practice will be servicing the Main Line for the next 30-40 years. Many people dread changing physicians late in life due to retirement or relocation. Our patients can rest assured we will be here for them for the long haul. Additionally, we have chosen to limit our total number of patients to half that of a usual concierge practice. With fewer patients, we dedicate more time to ensure our patients receive the most up-to-date care and assist them in navigating our local healthcare landscape.
