How are we different?

Sandpoint Direct Primary Care operates as a Direct Primary Care practice. It’s a progressive approach to personalized medical care. So, how is it different?

  1. Fewer patients.

In a typical practice, Primary Care Physicians have between 2,500-3,500 patients. In our model, Dr. King and Klaucke will each limit their practice to approximately 500 patients. This means that they are there for you when you need them and can spend the time it takes to get things right. It also means that when they are not actively seeing a patient, they are able to coordinate your care and research your clinical questions. Your well-being is Dr. King and Klaucke’s priority, and the reason for why they do what they do.

2. No insurance.

Sandpoint Direct Primary Care does not bill insurance, but we can still help you utilize your benefits. Decisions about your healthcare will be made by you and Dr. King or Klaucke, without the impersonal management that inevitably comes from third-party payers. Instead, patients pay a monthly membership fee which can save money and lead to better treatment.

3. Personalized Care.

Tired of feeling like a cog in the wheel? Dissatisfied with not having your concerns heard? Unhappy that you have to wait months for an appointment, or have to see another doctor than your own when you are sick? Our philosophy is to treat each patient as we would our own family, and give you the opportunity to form a relationship with your physician. You can rely on us to be there when you need us, to carefully listen to all of your worries, and to provide truly compassionate care.

Sandpoint Direct Primary Care has a smaller panel of patients than a traditional practice, so Drs. King and Klaucke are able to provide you the level of personal care you deserve.

 
 

About our Practice

Direct Primary Care

 
 

Direct Primary Care is a fast-growing area of medicine because patients and providers alike are frustrated with the current insurance-driven system. Drs. King and Klaucke will focus on you and your health without the unnecessary encroachment of insurance companies. We believe that the best primary care medicine is both personal and affordable, and that’s what we offer, without the red tape.  We want you, as a member of our practice, to experience a patient-doctor relationship based on trust and respect, and get the care you deserve.

Our patient benefits are extensive. You will enjoy include full access to your physician, meaning you will have more time with your provider, 24/7 access, no co-pays, and no limit on visits. Your monthly membership fee covers general adult physicals, women’s healthcare, newborn and pediatric care, wellness education, chronic disease management, minor procedures and coordination of care with specialists when needed. We also offer the added savings and convenience of an onsite wholesale pharmacy and lab.

We still encourage patients to maintain an insurance policy, especially to cover catastrophic events. However, for your primary care needs, we offer low cost medical care (not insurance).

Save on your healthcare expenses…

We have negotiated wholesale lab prices for send-out testing, and we do not charge for in-house labs, such as rapid strep testing, or urinalysis. We also provide wholesale, generic medications through our office pharmacy without a huge markup. For example, a common medication, such as your blood pressure medication, may only cost $1-2 for a 90 day supply.

Additionally, many procedures are included in your membership fee. For example, cryotherapy, and simple lesion removal, sutures/laceration repair are all included in your membership fee. If there is an extra charge for a service, you will know exactly what it is before proceeding. For a full list of services, click HERE.

We provide a yearly preventive exam (physical) that will be tailored to your personal medical needs. It’s all about you, and your specific goals for wellness. A physical exam will be done, and appropriate tests will be ordered. We will also make sure you are up to date with all recommended health screenings and preventive measures.

Communicate freely with your physician….

We don’t have a triage nurse - we encourage you to get directly in touch with your personal physician. If you need help after hours, weekends, and even holidays, we will be there for you. And, you’ll be able to reach us and your medical information via internet, webcam, email and text.

Because we have reserved our time for a smaller panel of patients, there will be no “squeezing you in.” In our practice model, you are a priority, and you’ll feel like one. We will do everything in our power to get you into the office the same day or next day when you need care.

You won’t feel rushed through an appointment, and there’s never a question you won’t have time to ask. Part of the relationship you’ll build with your doctor is based on your understanding of your care. Now that’s what we call personal healthcare.

Let us be your health advocate….

If you require a consultant for specialty medical care, Dr. King and Dr. Klaucke will work closely with that specialist. Because Sandpoint Direct Primary Care is not affiliated with any other healthcare systems, we will all work together to make important decisions on your behalf.

If you need hospitalization, either urgently or electively, we will help arrange your care before and after. We coordinate with hospitalists, surgeons, and other health care professionals with your best interest in mind.

In the Direct Primary Care model, we have created time for health education. We look forward to your questions, and won’t cut you short or gloss over the details.
