Dr. James Pinckney and Dr. Anthony Lyssy were featured in the “For the Record” episode “Cashcare: Exposing the Middleman,” which aired on March 4, 2015 on TheBlaze. Both doctors founded Diamond Physicians, which offers concierge medicine services. On call 24/7, they provide clients with personalized luxury healthcare at affordable prices. For as low as $95 a month, a person can enjoy unlimited visits and direct access to a physician via email or text. Dr. Lyssy says the core of their practice is preventive medicine. He often gives clients advice on diet and exercise programs.
Diamond Physicians wants to take modern-day medicine back to the 50s and 60s, when family doctors made house calls at any time of day. Although not widely accepted, concierge medicine is experiencing a surge in growth. The number of doctors providing concierge medicine services jumped 582% from 2010 to 2012, according to a report from the Heritage Foundation. Pinckney first discovered concierge meridian as a resident at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. He soon began thinking of ways to make luxury healthcare affordable for everyone and not just the wealthy.
