Specialdocs’ physician-client David A. Chappell, MD, established a concierge medical practice in Petaluma, California this month, combining his specialty in endocrinology with a return to full internal medicine coverage for his patients. Proactive wellness, prevention and personalized care will be emphasized.
“Doctors are increasingly rewarded for speed and protocol-based care, not looking, listening and thinking compassionately,” says Dr. Chappell. “My new practice will give me more time to ‘think outside the box’ and care for patients without onerous financial disincentives.”
Adds Roberta Greenspan, President, Specialdocs: “More time to spend with patients is the number one reason our doctors transition to concierge medicine.” Read more about Dr. Chappell’s transition in the Petaluma Patch…Patch.com
