Ready To Get Started?
A patient story can help you envision the assistance that you can get from your Euphora Health virtual direct primary care doctor.
A 38-year-old male living in Houston discovered that he couldn’t climb the stairs at work because his lower left abdomen hurt severely.
Because he had a virtual direct primary care doctor, he called his doctor to obtain help, even though the physician’s office was not in his area.
After a few questions over the phone, the doctor thought that the most likely diagnosis was diverticulitis—the most likely diagnosis for a male with pain in the left lower part of the abdomen. Due to the severity of the pain, a CT scan of the abdomen needed to be done to confirm the diagnosis and to rule out other possible causes.
This CT was ordered and scheduled by the virtual direct primary care doctor, who guided the patient to the best local value for the CT scan. As a result, the patient paid only $250 for the CT scan. [Remember: It’s the job of a direct primary care physician, regardless of your membership level, to be aware of where the best local values are for medical services.)
The CT scan confirmed the diagnosis of diverticulitis and also showed a perforation of the colon, where a small amount of fluid was leaking into his body cavity from his colon. Pain medications and antibiotics were then sent to the patient’s local pharmacy.
Over the course of a week, the patient healed—all without ever having to visit a physician’s office.
During the healing process, the patient’s doctor monitored his symptoms all along the way to make sure that he was improving.
It’s important to note that if the patient had required labs, the remote physician would have sent lab orders to a ‘draw station’ that was close to the patient. The physician then would have been able to quickly contact the patient with the results when the labs were returned.
What’s the Difference Between Virtual DPC and Traditional Direct Primary Care?
With Virtual DPC, just like with regular Direct Primary Care service, you’ll have 24/7 access to your physician and you’ll be able to obtain discounts on labs and medications along with guidance from your doctor on low price providers.
The only thing that you’ll miss out on are the services that we provide in the office, like a face-to-face physical exam and included procedures, such as EKGs, laceration repair and pap smears, for example.
