Wichita physician Aly Gadalla is converting part of his internal medicine practice to concierge medicine.
It's a change that will allow him to limit the number of patients he sees, to spend more time with each and "to bring back old-fashioned medical care," he said.
For $2,500 a year, he will give patients 24-hour-a-day access via cell phone, an appointment within 24 hours of a call and care that isn't dictated by third-party payers, he said.
Eventually, he wants to convert his entire practice to concierge medicine and limit it to 250 patients.
