At the PAMF Encina Practice, we provide quick access to care and longer appointment times. We believe this helps build the trust that's essential to the doctor-patient relationship.
Your PAMF Encina Practice doctor collaborates with other providers across the health system to make coordination of your care seamless and complete. Should our patients need specialty consultation or hospitalization, we coordinate timely access with our network of world-class specialists inside and outside of Sutter Health. In addition, our care team and office staff can help you navigate the healthcare system.
Continuity of Care
As we go through life, our healthcare needs evolve. Whatever your stage in life, there’s great value in having access to a doctor who knows you well. We believe in a holistic approach to prevention and recovery. Your concierge medicine doctor can help you explore the causes and treatments of any illnesses or change in health you might face. They’ll also discuss options for maintaining your health and treatment plans that will best fit your needs.
