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 the physician on call 24hrs a day if needed and after discharge a follow up appointment is guaranteed to be timely.
