As a family practitioner, I have a strong comittment to primary care as it was first intended to be: a strong, healing relationship between a practitioner and a patient.
South Bay Health is a micropractice, an intentional movement away from the large, multifaceted health care system to a model that focuses more on the patient. Visits are longer here, and you will not see multiple persons before you ever see a practitioner. The micropractice model takes care of one patient at a time, one provider. Practice costs are kept down so that practioners see less patients and spend more time with them, and can focus on what they enjoy most- taking care of people. I hope you find the space welcoming and comfortable and spread the word about micropractices so that everyone can have more choices where they get their primary care.
