DPC is a new model of healthcare that focuses on putting the patient first and restoring the patient-doctor relationship. That mean treating the patient when they need it, never rushing through appointments, and being proactive in creating treatment plans. For a low, flat monthly fee you get unlimited office visits with no co-pay, direct access to your doctor by cell phone, text, email, same day or next day visits, extended, relaxed office visits, access to discounts on medications, labs, pathology and imaging, all without the need for insurance. We remove the intrusiveness of health insurance and deliver affordable and personal care, unparalleled by any other model.
No, and happily so. This frees us from contractual agreements that prevent physicians in traditional practice from offering wholesale prices on medication, laboratory tests and imaging.
We recommend all patients have and maintain insurance coverage for medical catastrophes such as trauma, cancer and unexpected surgery. We recommended you opt for a lower cost, higher deductible plan that would still offer you coverage, but would lower your monthly premiums.
Oregon Health Vitality will take care of you just like we do with all out other patients.
If you have an urgent after-hours concern that you believe cannot wait for routine business hours, we will be available by phone to assist you. While we will come in on weekends for urgent needs if indicated, we ask that on the weekends routine needs wait for normal business hours.
Zero. Your monthly membership covers the costs of office visits as often as then are needed. We only charge an additional fee if we provide discounted medications or labs. We will always tell you ahead of time what any additional charges you would be responsible for. Imagine that, knowing what a medical service costs right up front and not 4-6 months later.
Yes, we can work with Medicare patients now! Give us a call at (503) 506-8500 for all the details.
Yes! While we always provide care for our sick patients, it is important to be proactive and create plans for staying healthy. Certainly, everyone benefits from healthcare tailored to them.
We do not manage chronic pain and do not prescribe chronic pain medication. We do not have or keep any pain medication at the clinic. This is because these medications are heavily regulated, need substantial monitoring, have a high rate of diversion and for most patients, long term, are detrimental to their overall health.
Not at this time. Hopefully in the near future.
