Physician Offers Innovative Primary Health Care Services to Provo Area Patients
PROVO, Utah, Sept. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Wesley D. Wylie, M.D., will open a new primary care practice designed to appeal to patients in search of a user- friendly alternative to the long wait times, rushed appointments and lack of personal interaction that most patients experience with their doctors.
The latest of several ModernMed practices nationwide, Dr. Wylie will serve patients in the Provo area and is scheduled to open on Nov. 17. The practice will accommodate a maximum of only 350 patients, compared to the 2,500 patient load of the average primary medical practice.
Concierge medicine is gaining popularity across the nation as a growing number of Americans report dissatisfaction with current health care services. Studies have shown that adults in the U.S. report lower levels of satisfaction with their health care compared to residents of similar countries like the U.K. and Canada.
"The current model of medicine is designed to treat illness once it surfaces," explains Dr. Wylie.
"By far, the majority of current health issues are a direct result of poor preventative measures. My new practice allows me to give each of my patients the time and attention they deserve and design an individual health plan for each patient that allows for optimal wellness. The goal is prevention and, by being proactive, we can prevent many diseases and illnesses."
The distinguishing characteristic of the practice is the extraordinary level of access to Dr. Wylie and his staff. Regular office hours will be Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and, in addition to guaranteed same-day or next-day appointments, Dr. Wylie will make house calls as needed to help those with limited access to care. Patients can also contact him 24/7 through email or mobile phone.
Dr. Wylie will treat pediatric and adult patients with a broad range of homeopathic and wellness services to complement his preventive approach to primary health care. Fully trained in critical care, obstetrics, gynecology, newborn and pediatric care, Dr. Wylie diagnoses and manages a wide array of medical issues including diabetes, heart disease, rheumatologic, psychiatric and acute care needs. Patients will receive annual comprehensive wellness exams and have direct access to their electronic medical records.
A graduate of the University of Texas Medical School, Dr. Wylie is board- certified by the American Academy of Family Practice. He completed his residency at the Memorial Health Care Systems in Houston and treated patients from around the globe at the renowned Texas Medical Center, known worldwide for its hospitals and research.
He is an instructor at the University of Utah Medical School and has served on the board of directors for Utah Valley Physicians Network and as vice chairman of the Department of Family Practice at Mountain View Hospital in Payson, Utah.
