“I was told by my primary care physician that I needed to see a urologist because of my elevated PSA level. I was concerned because we have a family history”, recalled Robert Grant, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Concierge Key Health about a health scare that inspired the creation of the company. “I went to make an appointment and it was a 12 week wait time. I was stunned. Who know what could happen? For all I know, it could be cancer.”
On this episode, Robert defines concierge medicine, shares CDC wait time statistics and shares feedback on how the Concierge Key Health is upgrading the healthcare experience.

About CONCIERGE KEY Health
CONCIERGE KEY Health is the world’s first mobile app for on-demand access to elite doctors and care facilities. With CONCIERGE KEY Health, waiting weeks or months to see your doctor is a thing of the past. CONCIERGE KEY Health provides patients with on-demand access to elite, faculty-level doctors vetted and qualified by their peers. Patients simply download the app, join on an annual membership subscription for themselves and their family, and then start booking on-demand.
Patients are assigned to their own unique team of elite specialists in the city they sign up in. When they’re in need of a specialist visit, they simply view their specialists’ schedule and select a two-hour time block to visit the office. When the patient visits at any time during that block of time, they simply become the next patient in line seen by the physician and are “fitted” into the physician’s daily schedule, avoiding long waits both to get in to see the physician as well as avoiding the long wait to see them once they arrive. Patients can get back to their normal life in no-time with less hassle.
