At Plum Health DPC, we listen. We take the time to get to know you, to understand your needs and your health goals.
A typical primary care practice has 2,400 patients. On average, the typical primary care doctor sees 24 patients each day, or 1 patient every 20 minutes. This is why a typical doctor will talk with you for < 10 minutes before moving on to the next patient. Sometimes, you can feel short-changed in these situations, only being able to ask a few questions before your doctor leaves.
Our practice limit is 500 patients. On average, our practice will see 5 patients each day. That gives us 1 hour to spend with each person if they need it. We use the remaining time to answer questions via phone, text, and email. This way, we can answer almost all of your questions in the clinic, and if you forget to ask something, we can follow up via text, phone, or email so nothing gets lost in the shuffle.
Because we have fewer patients than a typical family medicine practice, we are able to spend 30 minutes - 1 hour with each of our members. This allows us enough time to truly hear what you have to say, to understand your needs, and address your concerns.
If you don't believe it, give me a call 313.444.5630, send me a text, or send me an email - firstname.lastname@example.org - I will answer or get back with you shortly!
