With increased availability to the physicians and ease of scheduling an appointment, studies have shown that adult patients have fewer hospitalizations and emergency room visits when belonging to a DPC program.  In one study reported by Qliance, a leading DPC physician group in the Northwest area, showed that adult patients in the program utilized the ER over 60% less than average and were hospitalized one-third fewer days.

However, if patients do need more acute care, we are available to help make the transition as smooth as possible.  Hospital physicians can reach a physician on call 24hrs a day if needed and after discharge a follow up appointment is guaranteed to be timely.
