GOLD, MD: ‘What We Strive For With DPC …’

By Dr. Jeffrey Gold

“Traditional primary care doctors realistically spend half their work day on insurance-related administration, which is a clear imbalance in the healthcare system,” says Dr. Gold. “A DPC model allows me to provide the personal, thorough level of care that my patients want and need, but also makes financial sense from both the business perspective for my practice and healthcare spending perspective for the individuals and families we serve.”

MAY, 11, 2015 – One of the main reasons I decided to make this huge career change into a Direct Primary Care practice was to give patients what they deserve from their doctor….time. One of my patients that followed me from my old practice has allowed me to post this wonderful testimonial she wrote on Facebook on Friday. Many thanks to her for doing so. This is an example of what true patient and doctor satisfaction are about:

“Today I had my first official appointment with Dr. Jeffrey Gold at Gold Direct Care. It was a phenomenal experience. His new office space is beautifully decorated and comfortable. Dr. Gold spent quite awhile with me, answering numerous questions and making me feel, as he always does, at ease. Has anyone ever gone to their primary care doctor and been greeted with: “Would you like some coffee or tea?” My visit was an experience- not rushed, not pressured to hurry up. If you want a primary care doctor who sincerely cares about you and your family and is in the practice of medicine to do just that, then you have to meet with Dr. Gold and see what Direct Primary Care is all about.”
