About Partners in Primary Care
Our Care Delivery Organization consists of Partners in Primary Care and Family Physicians Group. We’ve grown robust and busy value-based Primary Care Practices in North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, Florida, Missouri, Kansas, Louisiana and Nevada. In addition to Partners in Primary Care, we have Family Physicians Group (FPG) with 25+ practices in central FL. We have robust growth plans and a stable Medicare Advantage market to support growth.
We provide innovative, senior-focused primary care services with an emphasis on quality over quantity. What differentiates us from many traditional Primary Care practices is that we follow a Value-Based Model of Medicine. Therefore, our providers see in-between 15-16 patients per day and have more time to spend with each patient and truly provide quality care.
We believe and practice that healthy patients are possible only by a healthy staff. That's why we limit our physicians' patient panels and support our physicians with a team that includes Physician Extenders, Medical Assistants, Care Coaches, Referral Specialists, Certified Coders, and experienced Administrative staff. Because of our Care Team approach, our patients have co...me to trust us to meet all their health needs. We work hard to deliver a level of care that provides them with the respect and dignity they rightfully deserve.
