Practice Builders and Exl Co-Host National Conference on Concierge Medicine


Irvine, CA | JUNE 30, 2015 – Interest in concierge medicine is growing dramatically as more physicians look for alternatives to the traditional insurance-based medical care model. The Concierge Medicine Assembly being held in Atlanta, GA July 31 through August 1st, 2015, is a nationwide event aimed at helping physicians explore the latest alternatives.

U.S Congressman Tom Price, MD, will be the keynote speaker and address “The Current State of Healthcare and Emerging Entrepreneurial Forms of Healthcare Delivery in America.”. Other nationally recognized speakers include bestselling author Michael Tetreault, editor of Concierge Medicine Today. They are among more than a dozen accomplished physicians, industry professionals and speakers who will address the conference.

The Conference will be hosted at the Westin Peachtree Plaza in Atlanta on Friday, July 31 – August 1, 2015. The annual Conference is Georgia’s largest event for concierge medicine, attracting specialty physicians, general internists, family medical practitioners, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, practice marketing and management advisors, law firms and others who come together for two days of relational learning, education, networking, professional development and personal growth opportunities.

Dr. Price and other speakers will share their experience and expertise on a range of topics including: industry trends; business models; employer partnerships; Direct Primary Care (DPC) business models; specialty concierge care; case studies in concierge care and DPC; tele-health technology; entrepreneurship; social media, branding and more. This year’s conference theme “Ready, Set, Grow” encourages physicians to take a greater role in changing the course of their practices and being a force for convenient healthcare change in their communities.

“We are thrilled to host Congressman Tom Price, MD, Richard Doughty, Dr. Robert Lamberts, Dr. Tom Joseph, Leslie Mitchell, Dr. Clint Flanagan, Dr. Edward Espinosa, Dr. Jeff Puglisi, Dr. Joel Bessmer and other inspiring physicians and healthcare professionals at this year’s Conference,” said Catherine Sykes, Publisher of Concierge Medicine Today and organizing partner along with Exl Events and Practice Builders. “What makes this event unique is that we have a wide variety of the industry’s leading female voices. Leslie Mitchell, Julie Robinson and Roberta Greenspan are all industry influencers, experts and leaders in their respective fields who will share their collective wisdom with us all.”

Exclusive to the Concierge Medicine Assembly, Mentoring-in-Minutes will offer attendees the chance to have one-on-one conversations with industry professionals, successful DPC and concierge medicine physicians as well as industry experts. They will provide an expert exchange session with concierge medicine veterans.
