Dr. Susan Alcasid, MD and Good Medicine DPC provides a level of service that is unprecedented in traditional medical care. This is because of her innovative direct primary care model. Direct primary care helps Dr. Alcasid provide better care by removing all the barriers that were in place when it came to caring for her patients.
“I want to offer my patients more than just conventional medicine but instead a more natural way of healing and living a healthy lifestyle. Happiness for me is spending time with my patients and knowing that I can take my time getting to know them. I want my patients to know that I am here for them, to truly listen and help them and that I do not just see them to meet quotas or guidelines set by someone else.”
Direct Primary Care, or DPC, departs from traditional insurance-based models of primary care and provides patients with more direct attention from their physician when they need it. Building a relationship with your doctor is nothing revolutionary; it’s just the best path to better health.
By working directly with patients and cutting out the middleman, Good Medicine DPC is able to lower costs while simultaneously improving access to care by providing more time to patients and decreasing waiting times. This gives patients more one-on-one attention at affordable cash pricing.
Appointments last up to an hour, ample time to fully explain any health problems and receive the proper hands-on care. This ensures enough time to truly understand problems and explain treatments. The monthly membership provides access to Dr. Alcasid through telemedicine and secure messaging, so she can answer any questions or discuss immediate health concerns, avoiding office visits.
How is DPC different?
