For many patients, especially those who are ages 65 and older, the traditional model of primary care -- which is reactive, not preventive -- isn’t enough to ensure a truly healthy life. Between physicians at maximum capacity and breakdowns in communication, traditional primary care can leave seniors and their families without the support they need.
Dr. Gerard Miller has been breaking the mold with preventive, one-on-one concierge care for geriatric patients for more than 20 years, including those who have Medicare. Dr. Miller’s primary care practice is the only concierge practice in Havertown, PA, and he is personally dedicated to providing individualized, preventative, comprehensive care to senior members and patients throughout Delaware County and the Philadelphia area.
Concierge care is about more than getting through an appointment, both for Dr. Miller and his patients. If you’re ready to build a relationship between physician, patient, and family that is based on time and trust, schedule your first consultation with Dr. Miller today.
One of the most important aspects of the concierge care model that sets it apart from traditional primary care is its focus on preventive care, rather than on reactive care. This means that Dr. Miller will focus on preventing the onset of diseases and conditions rather than waiting until a patient is sick to administer treatment.
In order to offer this level of support and prevention, Dr. Miller’s concierge services include the following:
Using this model, Dr. Miller allows patients to build a truly trusting bond with a board-certified internal medicine specialist like himself, offering a whole new level of support to geriatric patients who need continuous care and close attention to remain as healthy as possible while they age.

Dr. Miller is a champion of early detection, and with his 24/7-access policy and availability for house calls, he can ensure that you or your family member can reach him when you need him most.
