Concierge Choice Physicians (CCP), the nation’s leading full-service concierge medical service provider, today announced that Craig Johnson, MD, a Pasadena, California-based family practice doctor with more than 25 years of practice, has enrolled in the company’s Hybrid Choice™ program – an enhanced service that allows for greater connectivity between doctor and patient. By enrolling in Hybrid Choice, he can now offer the patients at his practice, Sierra Spring Family Wellness Center, the choice of joining a concierge program—the latest, most personal trend in the healthcare industry—or continuing with a traditional model of care.
For busy physicians like Dr. Johnson, CCP’s Hybrid Choice offers significant advantages. Doctors are able to maintain their traditional practice — seeing all of their patients and accepting insurance plans — while adding a new, private and stable revenue source. Hybrid Choice also lets doctors spend more time with current patients who choose to sign-up for the program, as well as offer exclusive after-hours and weekend availability via direct cell phone and email. In addition, the program allows participating doctors to advocate for patients with specialists. Hybrid Choice is available for an annual membership fee, with pricing dependent on the program elements offered by each doctor.
“I have always strived to provide the utmost in personalized, compassionate care for my patients. Recently, as the healthcare landscape has continued to grow more and more confusing, I have found that some patients needed more support and service, more time with me to help them coordinate their care and understand their treatment regimens in the context of their whole health,” said Dr. Johnson. “CCP’s Hybrid Choice program allows me to offer that enhanced practice experience to those patients who need it, while I continue to care for all my patients.”
Dr. Johnson graduated with honors from Stanford University and received his medical degree from the UCLA School of Medicine. He has won numerous awards for humanism in medicine and public service. He has dedicated much of his life to improving the health of underserved populations, providing health services as far as the outback of Australia, rural Alaska, Oaxaca, Mexico, Guatemala and the Kingdom of Nepal.
