Concierge medicine, retainer medicine, direct medicine, and boutique medicine are all terms used to describe a new form of medical service in which patients contract directly with their doctor for medical services. By removing the third-party payer, your physician acts as your advocate, with no interference or conflict of interest from outside parties.

Internist Steven D. Knope, M.D., a pioneer in creating patient-centered care for optimal health and wellness, is the first physician to offer this comprehensive, personal approach in Tucson.

For one annual fee, Dr. Knope provides:

  • Exercise and fitness consultation, including a lactate stress test, nutritional analysis and an exercise prescription tailored to your specific health and fitness goals.
  • 24/7 telephone access via cell phone or beeper wherever you are.
  • Same-day service for any medical problem that requires evaluation by Dr. Knope.
  • Office visits that are anything but routine. You are scheduled for 20- to 30-minute sessions for routine visits, depending on your needs.
  • All blood work is drawn in our office and sent to the lab.
  • Prompt telephone feedback with lab and radiology test results.
  • Prompt referrals to a select group of Tucson’s best specialists. When time is important, Dr. Knope will intervene on your behalf so you can see a specialist as soon as possible.
  • An annual physical exam, including a stress test and a disease prevention assessment, along with a comprehensive cancer screening.
  • Supervision by a personal trainer at your gym or in your home. Two sessions with a certified exercise physiologist to ensure you are following Dr. Knope’s exercise prescription properly.
  • Office visits that are anything but routine, you are scheduled 20-30 minutes….
  • More time can be scheduled for complex problems or for complete annual exams.
