Personalized Knee Care

Health care is evolving and Doctors and Patients should use this opportunity to improve the delivery of medical services.

Here is the short version and the 3 talking points:

1.) Focus on the Patient, Physician and Nurse (not health insurers, hospitals or alternative providers)

2.) Complete Patient Satisfaction (including Financial Satisfaction)

3.) Same Day Surgical procedures at Ambulatory Surgery Centers likely provide higher quality care and is more economical (hospital services are the highest dollar item in health care delivery)

4.) Patients may need to use out of network benefits to access care from providers – the insurers are narrowing choices by excluding small practices from insurance plans.

The Long Version

Focus on the Patient, Physician and Nurse (not health insurers, hospitals or alternative providers)
Dr. Tarlow’s practice model is based on a one on one patient contact allowing time with patients as a function of the complexity of the problem leading to complete evaluations resulting in accurate diagnosis and ordering of only necessary tests. Health Care Laws, Insurance Carrier Directives and Hospital Mergers aim to provide high volume care by “Busy Doctors” (defined as Patients’ time with their doctors being decreased, time with PA’s and NP’s being increased) which will lead to increasing the probability of incomplete evaluations, more errors and misdiagnoses, more inappropriate treatment, more radiographs and lab tests. In addition, there will be less communication, less empathy and less understanding for the patient, and less compliance and adherence to the treatment by the patient). Patient dollars need to be spent on patient care, not on Administrative Fees such as Insurance Executive and Hospital Administrator compensation.

Complete Patient Satisfaction (including Financial Satisfaction)
By moving the delivery of surgical services out of the hospital setting to SurgCenter of Greater Phoenix, a physician owned Same Day Surgery facility, Dr. Tarlow can ensure High Quality surgical care by overseeing every step of the procedure including care by the best nurses, facilities with modern equipment ( ASC with a Mako Robot), one on one patient interaction and Financial Satisfaction. Let us show you how we can make your surgical care encounter extraordinary.

Same Day Surgical procedures at Ambulatory Surgery Centers
Surgical care delivery is evolving. Current concepts favor getting you home on the day of your joint replacement procedure (just like many other medical procedures) for your well being, your comfort, to improve your outcome, to speed your recovery, and to keep you in your normal life with as little interruption as possible. Having your procedure at an Ambulatory Surgery Center like SurgCenter of Greater Phoenix could lower your out of pocket expenses.

Patient options/choices are limited by Health Insurers.
Small clinics such as Advanced Knee Care are being cut out of new HMO plans. Patients will still be able to choose their care provider by using out of network benefits. Often times out of pocket costs will be similar/matched.
