Praise for Concierge Medicine: A New System to Get the Best Healthcare


 … Concierge Medicine … puts forward the journey of one physician from frustrated practitioner to, dare I say it, joyful professional. And challenges patients to question and examine what they are getting for their or their employer's money under the traditional insurance-based healthcare practice model. I daresay the book will frustrate the critics of concierge medicine, but that is what is so great about freedom of ideas and speech. At least one MD in the USA is a happy practitioner!"

—Philippa Kennealy, MD. M.P.H. CPCC PC., author, The Entrepreneurial MD


“Dr. Steve Knope is a brilliant internist and health promotion guru. How do I know? Well, he’s my concierge physician! And ‘well’ it is, because Dr. Knope intersperses a personalized diet and physical activity routine into all of his patients’ visits. He is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to enhancing traditional medicine with alternative, health promotion approaches. I call him ‘The Answer’—i.e. the answer to our dysfunctional, impersonal healthcare system.”

—David S. Alberts, M.D., Regents Professor of Medicine, Pharmacology, Nutritional Sciences and Public Health and Director, Arizona Cancer Center, University of Arizona


“I strongly recommend Dr. Knope’s book for anyone interested in preventative medicine. Dr. Knope is a pioneer in the specialty of concierge medicine. His philosophy of prevention and wellness has been widely received and his program in Arizona has been extremely successful.”

—Gregg M. Yamada, M.D. FACC, CEO, Pacific Cardiology, LLC, Honolulu, Hawaii


“Dr. Steven Knope’s revealing, readable and practical book explains everything you need to know to protect your most important investment—your health—and to do so affordably.

—Sandra Froman, Harvard-educated attorney, international speaker, and past president of the National Rifle Association


“As a practitioner at the forefront of concierge medicine, Dr. Knope is the ideal expert to explain how patients can take charge of their wellness through this innovative approach to healthcare. In this book, he shows how this new type of medical practice—which offers 24/7 access to your doctor and even house calls—promises a highly personal, individualized doctor-patient relationship. This is the go-to guide for what you need to know about concierge medicine, including why it’s not just a luxury for the wealthy and how you can find the right doctor for your budget and needs. And with his engaging writing style, Dr. Knope has delivered a book that not only informs, but entertains.”

“Dr. Knope’s book is a clear and accessible contribution to the important national dialogue on health care delivery.”

“Concierge Medicine returns physicians to their original calling—the needs of the patient. Primary care physicians are changing the health care model by working for their patients, not the insurers or the government. Access to quality care at an affordable price—what a simple solution.”
