I have this service. Worth every penny.
Oh my, was it win-win for everyone. He kept I think 500-1000 of his best patients. Not the richest, just the ones he knew he could help, and charged a rather nominal fee per month for the "membership". The patients paid with insurance or cash.
He had to deal with a few "stragglers" that would call him off hours, but in general the patients were given the time and attention they needed.
It was a treat as a physician to have 45 uninterrupted minutes with a patient, get to know them and not rush out of the room to complete some assinine EMR template.
He keeps asking me to come back and be his partner, but I've got a job closer to home.
Maybe I'll retire to something like this.
It's the kind of medicine I had hoped to practice. Caring, compassionate, and rewarding emotionally and financially.
