Our Practice

Vantage Physicians, serving Olympia and surrounding areas since 2006, is a Direct Medical Practice: a unique and growing model of healthcare where the consumer pays the physician a direct monthly fee. This billing process reduces paper work as well as the labor and waste involved in billing and rebilling insurance carriers. In addition, Vantage is committed to a boutique medicine approach. This means we are a full-service family care, primary care, geriatric care and pediatric care clinic. We strive to get to know our patients well and provide personal services such as house calls and follow-up care.

 

Over the last several years it became clear that the current medical system was not meeting the needs of our patients. Many patients were frustrated by poor access to their doctor, long waiting times for short appointments, slow responses to phone messages, and physicians who no longer called on their patients in the hospital or nursing home. We knew that on average 40 cents of every dollar our patients spent was wasted on trying to get their insurance companies to pay for their care.


Board certified, patient centered healthcare

At Vantage Physicians, we are deeply committed to providing prompt, friendly, quality medical care to our patients. Our concierge practice model allows us to focus on our patientís needs rather than the requirements of their insurance carrier. We are free to focus on the primary interaction in healthcare: the patient-physician relationship.

Testimonial

"If youíve ever had a medical issue or emergency away from home, you know how difficult it can be to access quality medical care, even if you have good medical insurance. Sometime whether youíre on vacation or you work out of town you need medical care that you can trust.

Recently, when I was out of town a minor but important medical problem occurred that needed immediate attention. Through this experience I quickly realized how important it is to have someone on the inside of the medical community to serve as my advocate.

Vantage Physicians really came through for me. With just one quick email and an immediate response the Vantage Team began work to research quality options that would best meet my medical need even though I was in Florida at the time and unable to return to Washington. They were able to get an appointment for me in my current location when my efforts were met with great resistance.

As someone that travels extensively for my job and for pleasure, I have a real peace of mind that if medical issues arise whether Iím at home or away, I have someone on my side that will help me seek out and receive that best possible medical care. I not only have a home for my medical records and regular medial care with Vantage Physicians, but I also have a physician that is able to take to time to serve as my advocate within the medical community when referrals are needed or serious issue arise.

Thatís a real advantage with Vantage Physicians!"
