Once again proof that you either need to be wealthy or poor to receive care. If you're wealthy, you get your MDVIP doctor. If your poor and need care, please go to the ER. If your middle class, please call your GP or go to urgent care and don't even think about getting a good MD because he/she is part of MDVIP, which you can't afford because of outrageous insurance premiums. Middle class = screwed.

Give it a little time. The poor will be screwed too.

Before someone jumps on board and blames "Obamacare" for this, you need to realize the only reason concierge service was developed and thrives is because 1) rich people want it, and 2) doctors want it.

Neither of these groups really care about people. Doctors care more about their bottom line than they do patients. This is the reason fewer and fewer are going into general practice. They're becoming specialists because there's more MONEY in it.

Money talks. It always has and it always will. If you don't have it, you're left behind holding an empty sack.

No person has the right to appropriate the fruits of one's productive labor to another without their consent. These docs are simply reclaiming what the healthcare system has taken away from them (obamacare, Medicaid, and Medicare included).
