It combines the scope of practice of a traditional primary care provider with a business model that allows it to be personal, affordable, and accessible.
DPC allows patients more time, direct access, and a greater relational connection with their health provider. You will have greater access to your provider with longer office visits and the ability to call, email or text. Patients will also be cared for as whole persons: body, soul, and spirit.
Acute illnesses that are addressed in a timely and complete fashion
Chronic diseases are aggressively attended
Preventative medicine that is thorough and individualized
Wellness program which looks to optimize health
Another goal of DPC is to re-establish the patient-provider relationship. You will be able have access to your provider (via phone, text, email or in the office) therefore making efficient use of your time and promoting greater contact with your provider. You will have an advocate and together we will co-create your health.
One of the greatest benefits you will gain from this kind of practice is the focus and promotion of your health. With you being healthy, you then have the time and ability to do the things you want to be doing. Optimized health is a great legacy to give your family and one of the best returns on investments you will find.
The wellness program promotes your health (not waiting for the disease to happen) by maintaining scheduled follow-up appointments (via telemedicine) every 3-4 months to work on a variety of areas (areas including gut health, nutrition, hormones, toxic exposure/elimination, body, soul, and spirit.)
DPC provides a level of involvement that the current healthcare structure does not allow. Instead of using health insurance with me, you pay a monthly fee and have all the services that primary care providers can offer (which you can use your HAS/FSA to pay for).
Please watch the video located to the right.
After watching the video, please email me and we can set up a time to talk on the phone, answer any questions you might have, and go over pricing.
I look forward to your first appointment so we can start our partnership for your health.
