DAPC gives providers more freedom, less administrative tasks, more time to help patients and greater joy. 

Providers can save 10+ hours of administrative work each week. They can use this time to see more patients or to focus on other things.

Estimated Salaries:

Average 20 patients a day – $125,000 yearly

Average 25 patients a day – $165,000 yearly

Average 30 patients a day – $205,000 yearly

(Estimates based on $35 per visit, 2 weeks vacation, 5 work days, $5000, $5500, $6000 monthly expenses respectively)
DESIGNED ACCESS

DAPC is about access

Healthcare only has true value to those who can access it

DESIGN

The DAPC Model is built around patient access.

Walk Ins

We promote Walk-In Visits to help decrease logistical barriers to seeking care.

Inclusive

DAPC accepts everyone without memberships, regardless of self-identification or values.

Low Cost

Financial barriers are significant obstacles for many. Decreasing costs enable more to take care of themselves.
