It is the 21st century and now is the time to simplify the way in which we visit our Family Physician. Technology has changed every aspect of our lives yet going to the doctor has remained the same. Our goal is to simplify your visit to the doctor while saving you time and money. Unfortunately, our current system equates to spending an average of only seven minutes with your doctor. Lack of time with their own family doctor is one of the top complaints patients have about our current system. More time with your doctor is just one of the many advantages that Direct Primary Care provides for the patient. Longer visits equate to less fragmented care. Fragmentation of care within the traditional insurance based system leads to un-necessary testing and higher costs. Coordinating appropriate care and simplifying the patient experience is ONE of the MANY foundations of the Direct Primary Care model.
We truly believe that when the locus of control is moved back to the patient-physician relationship, optimal health follows. We have a strong belief in this model and we are very passionate that the DPC system can benefit you, your health, and most importantly; your family. An integrative approach to wellness that encompasses traditional evidence based medicine blended with holistic methods emphasizing optimal nutrition and lifestyle changes. True health begins when your physician treats the mind, body, and spirit. HamptonMED cares about you and will take care of you in anyway possible. A limited patient panel allows us to have a unique relationship with each of our patients. When your physician is a partner in your wellness then happiness and health will follow .
This model proves that when you tailor your insurance needs and pay directly for your routine care, then you end up saving money in the long term. Unfortunately, most individuals never meet their deductible for the year and therefore end up paying for 100% for sub-optimal, fragmented care. The Direct Primary Care Model eliminates copays and drastically reduces urgent care visits and Emergency room trips. Our goal is to minimize these types of emergency driven visits. However, if a situation arises when emergent care is needed, then your DPC Physician is at the disposal of your treating physician to help coordinate care and reduce unnecessary testing. This is why a personal relationship with your physician is crucial. This particular relationship has been shown to reduce downstream costs associated with medical care. More time for each patient equates to less fragmented care. Most of the time, the annual cost of the DPC membership is less than the average yearly deductible. This does not take into account the savings that we pass onto you with use of our discounted labs and generic in-house medications. Some patients save enough on labs and medications to cover their entire yearly membership!
