DPC stands for Direct Primary/Patient Care and is an alternative to the current medical system that limits the time patients have with their physician. DPC allows physicians to establish a trusting personalized relationship with their patients by offering visits in a relaxed and unhurried environment; free of 3rd party intrusions. In a sense, it’s actually similar to how medicine was practiced in the “old days”. Your physician works directly for you and only you.
You pay a low monthly membership fee and this allows Dr. Nadler to limit the amount of patients she sees; this way she can focus more time and attention to each of her patients. Most office visit range from 30-60 minutes where you have her full attention and can have all your questions answered. It also allows Dr. Nadler the time to counsel on healthy lifestyle habits, like diet and exercise which are the cornerstones of health.
Typical doctors carry loads upwards of 2500-3000 patients, especially when supervising non-physician providers. DPC physicians have smaller panel sizes to provide this additional time and attention. At CoastalMED DPC our limit is 600-650 patients. Once we are full we will utilize a waiting list, but will always prioritize friends and family members of our current patients.
*** We DO NOT accept any insurance including Medicare, but you may continue to use your insurance/Medicare for labs, imaging, specialist visits, etc... Dr. Nadler can continue to order tests and referrals as usual ***. Patients with HMO plans cannot participate in a DPC relationship since the HMO participating physician is required to order all tests and referral (if unsure contact your plan).
