Making Cost for Medical Services Affordable through MDC-Atlanta


THE greatest expense over a person’s life time is Health-care.  And, unfortunately, as we all age, we will eventually suffer illness and/or disease.  The real question becomes, “How do we make Health-care affordable?  I believe the most basic and simple answer to this question is through EFFECTIVE Communication.

COMMUNICATION: When a patient’s primary health-care provider considers the whole patient, and not just a subject or an item to use as profit, the cost for medical services can be greatly reduced. So, we start our communication process at MDC-Atlanta by defining the role of the primary care provider in our WELCOME LETTER CLICK HERE.

The second step is to allow the patient to choose which level of health-care service that may be appropriate for the patient at the time of initiating service with the provider, and this is defined essentially during TRANSITION OF MEDICAL CARE.

Healthy patients do not always need to visit a doctor.  So providing a form of convenience for a patient to communicate with a physician through TELEMEDICINE, CLICK HERE may also reduce cost and improve compliance as well as prevent advanced stages of certain types of debilitating diseases/illnesses.

Duplicate medical services for laboratory studies, imaging studies, or other diagnostic clinical studies may greatly increase a patient’s expense for health care service. Thus, choosing direct services from a diagnostic specialist  like Dr. Gates, could greatly contribute to reducing the cost for certain medical evaluation,CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE.   By choosing Direct-Care through Dr. Gates, one can essentially eliminate middle-man expense, i.e. administrative/hospital add-on fees; fees for clinical evaluation IN ADDITION TO  diagnostic laboratory evaluation, phlebotomy, transportation, and the list goes on and on.
