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.
