How do you stay involved in your community?
In addition to coaching youth sports, I have been very heavily involved with Southside Church as a volunteer. My wife, Susan, and I also lead a church based community group.
Why did you decide to become a concierge physician?
There are currently growing pressures from politicians and from insurance companies to limit the relationship of physician to patient. We are expected to follow protocols and base decisions on certain laboratory and other data. I believe that the best practice of medicine comes from listening carefully to the patient and helping them identify their health goals. From that perspective, decisions can be made that help achieve those goals. Becoming a concierge physician opens up that time to practice medicine this way. It truly permits me to become a partner in my patient's lives.
In the past year, I’ve started to explore the science of anti-aging medicine. I have wanted to have a better understanding of why some patients age more quickly than others. I’m excited about the cutting edge knowledge and products that I am able to bring back to my practice.
"My wife and I think the world of Dr. Adcox and genuinely appreciate the care he gives us. He is an extremely caring doctor and we can’t imagine using a different primary care physician."
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
