Why did you decide to become a concierge physician?
I starting considering concierge medicine in 2011 and spent a year making my final decision. After considering several options, I made the decision to join Cypress during the summer of 2012. One of the primary reasons I joined Cypress is because they supported my desire to do a “Blended Model,” which allowed me to transfer all of the ‘non-concierge’ patients to one of my mid-level providers. This ensures that all patients can still be seen at Anglyn Family Medical Center; even if they elect not to join as a concierge patient.
Goal of Practice
Being someone’s physician is a special honor and privilege. With a concierge practice, I look forward to continuing to enjoy spending time working with patients for many more years. Our practice motto has long been “Medicine is a Ministry.” For me, being a physician has made me a better Christian and being a Christian has certainly made me a better physician.
"Dr. Anglyn's approach to medical care and practice is the only answer to today's health care problems. If the rest of the medical field followed his example, we all would be better off."
Concierge Medicine Philosophy & Approach
We believe that medicine today should focus on prevention, early detection, wellness, direct patient care and spending dedicated time with patients. These are the tenets of concierge medicine. After years of private practice, physicians who transition to concierge medicine get to return to giving patients the type of care they envisioned when entering medical school. Learn More
