East-West Rheumatology Membership
What is Direct Physician 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. All your visits are included with our per month fee in addition to excellent access to your doctor. No more waiting weeks for an appointment.
As a physician board-certified in internal medicine and rheumatology, Dr. Yousef Zarbalian is uniquely qualified to provide comprehensive medical care for a wide variety of medical conditions.
I emphasize disease prevention and early detection of disease (before the laboratory testing may show a problem). The goal is to ensure a high quality of life - not just "normal" labs. This means giving you time, hearing your story, and taking your symptoms seriously. This is why I went into medicine.
