Extended visits with your personal physician . . .
You will enjoy unrushed visits with your personal physician who knows you and is committed to partnering with you to achieve your health care goals. Because we care for a limited number of patients, we have more time to spend with you, listening, getting to know you and answering your questions. We value the opportunity to educate you about your health and how to protect it.
Virtually no waiting when you arrive . . .
We make every effort to see you immediately when you arrive. You will experience little to no wait time on arrival and, if one is anticipated, you will be contacted as soon as we are aware.
Excellent access to your physician . . .
We strive to ensure convenient (often same day or next day) scheduling for routine care as well as care for acute illnesses and injuries. We also provide our after-hours contact information so that we can offer guidance for health issues that arise unexpectedly and cannot wait until the office reopens. With your permission, the smart use of technology via e-visits can support our care of you when necessary and appropriate.
Reduced healthcare expenses . . .
Control healthcare costs with reasonable membership rates, no office copays or facility fees, and deeply discounted rates for lab tests, imaging and many other selected professional services. Excellent physician access and attentive management of chronic disease processes results in DPC patients traditionally being less likely to need expensive emergency and hospital care. Additionally we are happy to work with you to implement strategies that can dramatically reduce your prescription drug costs. And, did we mention our transparent pricing structure? It is just another thing that is Uncommon about our Healthcare! All healthcare costs not related to your membership (charges for services such as imaging and lab testing as well as specialty, emergency and hospital care that occur outside of our office) can still be assumed by your insurance company in the usual way.
Comprehensive primary care . . .
Membership will cover the vast majority of your healthcare needs. Generally, if it is a medical service we provide in the office, it is included in your low monthly membership fee and yes, procedures are performed at no extra cost. Following is a list of included services however please contact us with inquiries about others not listed.
Annual health maintenance visits consisting of a complete physical examination, health promotion and disease prevention counseling, and individualized health risk stratification with recommendations for screening tailored for your age and personal history. These visits are vital to helping you maintain optimal health and prevent disease and injury.
Well child care from infancy through adolescence: consists of a complete physical exam, growth and development assessment and health promotion/disease prevention counseling. Additionally, extensive anticipatory guidance is offered to prepare you and your child for upcoming changes and will allow you to confidently navigate the months and years to come. While we advocate for and strongly encourage routine vaccinations, we are not able to provide them in the office at this time. We are however, eager to work with you to arrange them and help you ensure that an appropriate vaccination schedule is maintained. For the safety of our other patients, we do not participate in the care of unvaccinated children.

Coordination of care . . .
