The history of "Concierge Medicine" is rather brief being that it is a relatively new type/style of medicine. Originated around 1996, a Washington physician, serving as the
doctor for the local professional team, realized that the retainer team fee could be a wonderful style of practice. In true pioneer style, the doctor started the first "Concierge"
medical practice, and his concept (along with the appreciation of his patients) introduced a personal and compassionate type of medicine.
"preferredMD" was designed to offer patients a more flexible and convenient relationship with Doctor Gray through convenient appointment options, unhurried physician
consultations and personalized healthcare attention. "preferredMD" was designed to make the patient the priority.
Fostering therapeutic excellence as well as personal patient care, the "Concierge" or "Retainer Fee" medical practice is designed to re-establish the direct communication
and interaction between the patient and the doctor, allowing the physician to be more accessible to his/her patients. With a commitment to integrated care for the whole
person, the "Concierge" practice offers convenience, comfort, and efficiency for patients and the doctor.
"Concierge Medicine" practices are considered to be the new health care models that are redefining primary health care. Since 1996, when the concept was first developed, "Conceirge Practices" have developed and expanded all around the country.
Texas hosts several; Dallas - Fort Worth, San Antonio, Austin, El Paso and since 2004 - Lubbock. Dr. Andy Gray's practice is available to 500 patients who value
family, wellness, peace of mind, and time. The significantly reduced number of patients allows Dr. Gray the time to study and concentrate on each individual's needs and concerns.
Our mission is to provide accessible, competent, and comprehensive medical care in a friendly and professional environment with an emphasis on patient-oriented service
and a focus on primary prevention.
