East-West Rheumatology Membership

What are Direct Physician Care and Direct Specialty Care?

The direct physician care (DPC) model is a simpler way of delivering medical care.  You pay one monthly (or yearly) fee and that's it.  Medical visits are included with our per month fee in addition to excellent access to your doctor. No more waiting weeks for an appointment.  Since Dr. Zarbalian is a specialist, it may also be called Direct Specialty Care. 

As a physician board-certified in internal medicine and rheumatology with additional training in acupuncture and herbal medicines, Dr. Yousef Zarbalian is uniquely qualified to provide comprehensive medical care for a wide variety of medical conditions.
