There are also no insurance reimbursements for curing you and keeping you healthy. This forces doctors to have you come in the office and then charge you every time you want to speak with them or follow up, only when you’re ill. Recently, Doctors have needed to see upwards of 35+ patients a day just to keep their practices solvent and do not provide wellness services.
In the DPC membership model, we are free to dialogue when, where, and how long the patient needs at no extra cost. This significantly increases the level of service and care a patient receives from their doctor. So much so, that in one study patients in a DPC membership model experienced:
- 66% Less Specialists
- 65% Less ER Visits
- 35% Less Hospitalizations
- 82% Less Surgeries

I have chosen a membership model because it’s affordable to the patient and allows me to take care of my patients (whom I love!) in the best way I know.
