CONVENIENCE

Because your family’s health doesn’t follow a schedule.

SERVICES INCLUDED IN OUR MONTHLY FEE

Full Access to Your Doctor

Literally. After hours, weekends, holidays – there’s no bad time to receive excellent medical care. Easily schedule your appointments by phone or online.

Extended, Relaxed Visits

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.

Same-Day and Next-Day Service Scheduling

Because Dr. Hoffman reserves time for a select number of patients at the practice, there will be no “squeezing you in.” You’re a priority, and you’ll feel like one.

Wholesale labs, radiology, and medication costs

Our savings are extended to you. All prices will be quoted before your labs are ordered or your prescription is filled.

Full Access Via Technology

You’ll be able to reach us and your medical information via internet, e-mail and text.

A Comprehensive Annual Physical and Employment/School Physicals

This exam will be fitted 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.

Minor Labs and Procedures

For example, minor suturing, cryotherapy, and skin biopsy 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. There are special labs and procedures that may require an additional fee. Our members receive a discounted price for these special labs and procedures.

Consultation with Specialists

If you require a consultant for specialty medical care, Dr. Hoffman will work closely with that specialist. The choice of specialty care provider is made together with you and Dr. Hoffman.

OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO PATIENTS

Primary care medicine is the foundation of good health and wellness, and a close partnership with the individual who provides primary care improves patients’ chances at wellness. The current healthcare system does not always emphasize wellness, and certainly does not promote individual partnership/relationships between patients and the persons who care for them.

Vanguard Direct Family Medicine is different. Our goal is to keep you healthy by restoring the sanctity of the provider-patient relationship. We have the time necessary to get to know you, identify your health needs and develop individualized wellness plans and appropriate treatment options that are mutually agreeable. Dr. Hoffman looks forward to getting to know you and is grateful that you would place your trust in her to care for you and your family.

Additional charges may apply for procedures, tests, labs, etc. Those costs will be discussed with the patient before administration.
